Query Critique Contest

Hey everyone, one of our most active critiquers during WriteOnCon, Ishta Mercurio, is having a query critique contest at her blog, Musings of a Restless Mind.  She did a fabulous job in the forums, so I'm suprised to see so few entrants in her contest.  I'm hoping to send a few more her way.  It ends TOMORROW, 8/20, at midnight so you better get over there quick!

Ishta's work has appeared in KNOW: the Science Magazine for Curious Kids, and she's gotten a lot of positive feed back on her queries.  Natalie Fischer pointed her query out as a good example of a picture book query during WriteOnCon, and one of the YA queries she critiqued in the practice forum caught the attention of one of the agents during the actual event (revised!).

It's a great opportunity to get an extra opinion and set of eyes on your query.  Thanks for checking it out!
