As part of Ashley Marchs' month-long March Maddness Celebration, beginning today (Thursday, March 17, 2001) agent Barbara Poelle of the Irene Goodman Literary Agency is taking 3 sentence blog pitches for historical romance on Ashley's blog.

Your 3 line pitch can be a combination of any 3 sentences: 1 sentence blurb of book + 1st 2 lines of ms; a 2 sentence blurb + 1st line of ms; or you can use all 3 lines for the synopsis blurb. The winner gets a partial read. 

Beginning today (Thursday, March 17, 2001), you will have until midnight MST on Thursday, March 24th (one week) to comment on this post with no more than three sentences.

The three sentences MUST be either: 1 sentence blurb + first 2 lines; 2 sentence blurb + 1st line; or 3 sentence blurb.

Barbara will choose the pitch/excerpt she likes the best (not random) and the winner will be announced on Thursday, March 31st, the last day of March Madness. Further details on how/when to submit partial will be sent to winner. Completed manuscripts are encouraged, but not required.

Open for aspiring historical romance authors only.

Do they still host this kind of contest now? I'm curious.
