The Baker's Dozen Agent Auction

I have just found a new to me blog event that sounds like a lot of fun:  The Baker's Dozen Agent Auction is MSFV's biggest event of the year.  (MSFV Miss Snark's First Victim,  is a blog for aspiring authors.)  60 250-word entries, hand-picked by Jodi Meadows and Authoress (the anonymous author of said blog), will be placed on the auction block for agents to bid on (with requests for pages, up to a full manuscript request). It bears the name "Baker's Dozen" because the original auction in 2010 included 13 agents--a baker's dozen.  If you are an aspiring author who is ready to begin the search for an agent, you may just want to check out this event at 2013 Baker's Dozen.  If you aren't quite ready to take that step, or if you just like to read about or hob knob with aspiring authors, you still might find this even interesting. 

Here are the important dates to remember: 

SUBMISSION DATES:

October 29 and 31 -- Adult fiction (all genres except erotica and erotic romance)*
November 5 and 7 -- Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction (all genres)
THE ACTUAL AUCTION DATE: December 3

I think I just may check it out and see what all the fun is about.
