Snoop says, RED LIGHT! Thanks for your patience. We had quite a full day today. Round 4 judging is now complete!
We have a winner in the PB category. *PB entries may still compete for the glory of making it the end and getting some feedback when this whole thing is done. *
NEW RACERS: Visit this post for full details on how this game is played.
An asterisk next to your X means Snoop is just looking for reasons to eat your work.
Snoop is noticing that a lot of picture books are coming in as short-story/older works posing as picture book manuscripts. Please check out our Revision 9-1-1 article for picture books for other reasons why your submissions might be getting eaten.
Novelists/Longer-Work people: are you checking your pages to make sure your characters aren’t totally woe-is-me, down-on-themselves-or-haters in the opening pages? Your characters don’t have to be all happy and friendly, but they do need to show some redeeming qualities for Snoop to want to read about them.
Also, are you taking the LONG route to get to the point? Make sure you’re moving the story forward. Snoop has a huge feeling a lot of works in Round 5 are going to meet an untimely death by-way-of-giant-incisors if you don’t do something to tighten the pacing. Cut out stuff that doesn’t need to be there. Or CHOMP-CHOMP-CHOMP!
