SC Write - Become an Agent Contest

I'm a participant in SC Writer's Become An Agent contest! In this, you only have a limited amount of entries that you can say yes too! There are no editors, agents, etc. involved in this one, but it definitely gives you an idea of what going through a slushpile would be like. For those that are involved in the contest (i.e. yours truly), we can only give two people out of seven a YES! Everyone else, can give only three "YES!" out of all twenty entries!

So, if you have some time, go through the entries and give your honest opinion! To give a peak behind the curtain, I'm #19, but I'm sure you could have figured that out. If you read others and like them better, then give me the lashing I deserve and tell me how I can improve! Thanks to all for reading, even if you don't find the time to give comments.

Justin D. Herd

Justin D. Herd is a purveyor of the weird and strange. He occasionally squawks at friends and family, but does so only under the cover of night. Okay, that's not true. He squawks in full daylight. Drinking games have been built around his peculiarities, but the truth of it is this: he is a loving husband, with two wonderful dem--children. One growls at things he likes, including pretty women. The other has started to learn hand-eye coordination. Neither had made it to the tender age of three. From there, things will only get more interesting. He spends most of his writing time either at a coffee shop or sitting at one of his many desks around his house. Any other place makes it nearly impossible for him to write. He uses horror movies and rock music to help get the juices flowing. His favorite authors are Jeremy Robert Johnson, Alan Campbell, Terry Pratchett, Justin Cronin, and Patrick Rothfuss. He consumes most of his books through audiobooks, but still loves his personal library and getting lost in the printed word.
