That's quite the line up don't you think?! I'm thrilled to have them all on board. In the next couple of weeks we're going to be getting to know some of these agents better through interview questions they've been gracious enough to answer. And speaking of interview questions, today only you can catch one of the judges, Brittany Booker (see above) over at Cassie Mae's blog answering your writer questions. You can't miss that! 

What we have coming up for GUTGAA:
-Come back Friday to sign up for the Meet and Greet portion of the blogfest and to pick up your 'get to know me' questions
-Next week it's official, GUTGAA will begin!
-We still have Small Presses to reveal (I was going to do it today with the agents, but I feel like they all deserve their own day) so stay tuned for that next week!

And as always...
If you want to get in on the Gearing Up to Get an Agent Blogfest/Pitch Contests go HERE to sign up.
The schedule is HERE.
Badges are HERE.

Great line up! Thanks, Deana, for organizing the event.

Jenny S. Morris said...

That is an awesome list. Yay, Brittany. And as always Deana, you rock!

That is a serious all star cast :)

Kathryn Purdie said...

Hooray for all the agents, and special props for my own, the fabulous Weronika. <3

Some very beautiful and talented ladies you have there. And Mr. Andrew isn't an agent, he's an actor! With those looks he can very well be.

I'm so up for this fiesta again. The first one was incredible, this one promises to be OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD.

Cassie Mae said...

Yay! That's an awesome lineup! And an extra whoot whoot for my agent :)

And thanks for mentioning the interview!!!

What a great line-up of agents! In case you haven't heard it today, you are all kinds of awesome, Deanna :)

I'm really excited that Tricia Lawrence is participating!! Can't wait to enter the contests!!!

Charlie N. Holmberg said...

Oh wow!! So many great agents!

I wonder if it's kosher to pitch two separate books during GUTGAA...?

Tara Tyler said...

soooo awesome! yeah!

Sarah said...

How exciting! I can't wait!

Good luck to everyone. I have my agent now and so I won't be taking part, but I just wanted to say that Jennifer Azantian is awesome and really helped me enormously this year. Anyone who gets her is onto something special!

Juliana L. Brandt said...

I think my heart might just have stopped ;)

Lara Schiffbauer said...

Now I'm nervous... :P

Barbara Watson said...

Looks awesome! Thanks so much for all your work.

Stephsco said...

I am freakishly excited. You have some great agents here! Even if I don't find any agent interest, I'm looking forward to connecting to other writers who are ready to query and to get some help on my own query. I'm a planner and an over-preparer, so actually getting out there to query feels a bit intimidating.

Unknown said...

Wow. Do you smell that? It's my fear. I'm scared but excited at the same time!

Heather M Bryant said...

I don't know if I'm just imagining it, but those agents sure look like a awesome bunch of people.

Natasha Hawkins said...

WOW! This is an amazing line up. I'm full of nervous excitement...
