Do you have a great action scene in your work in progress? Have you always wanted to write a chase scene but never knew how to work it into your novel about struggling Cape Cod strawberry farmers from the 1700s? Well, listen up. Agent Nathan Bransford has a contest going. He's looking for "the most compelling chase and/or action and/or suspenseful sequence. It may be something you have written for the purpose of the contest or from a work in progress."
It needs to be 500 words or less. You pop it into a comment over at his blog, and on June 3rd (that's tomorrow) he'll read and choose the winner. Best Action Sequence Ever. What's the prize?
"The winner will receive:
- Their choice of a query critique, partial critique, or 10 minute phone conversation/consultation/dish session
- The pride of knowing you suspensed the heck out of me and your fellow readers.
Runners up will receive a query critique or other agreed-up on prize."
Sweet. I'm combing my back pages to find a short gem that moves. How about you? He's got some guidelines and rules to follow, so check those out before you post your action comment. Good luck!
