Congratulations to QueryTracker on turning 2 - love this tool to find representation / related contest

There's a cool and relatively new tool online for finding representation - I really like QueryTracker, which allows writers to browse for agents and keep track of their connections. It gets all the information in one place for a very modest fee, and it has been an excellent resource for me.

There is a free versison as well, but I ponied up the few extra bucks per year to get more and it's a service Frugal Me is happy to pay for. There are so many sites and services hoping to get a piece of my little financial pie - this is one of the few that I consider worth it.

Congratulations to QueryTracker on their Two Year Anniversary Celebration. The Carnvial starts today, with several fun contests spread out over three weeks. Check them out! There are some darn fabulous prizes, including a Web site design - got to love that.

The first two weeks they will be announcing the contests and taking entries. On the third week, they will award prizes for each contest (one each day), and culminate with the grand finale prize on Friday, June 5.

Tuesday, May 19 - Purple Prose ContestContest Details Submit Your Entry
Thursday, May 21 - Anagram Contest

Check back with them at at the beginning of each week for details.

Contest winners will be announced in the first week of June, and on June 5 they will draw the name of the grand prize winner. Every time you enter, your name gets into the hat for the random Grand Prize drawing for a custom-designed writer's website to showcase your craft.That's a $600 value provided by Purple Squirrel Web Design. Purple Squirrel is a web design company that focuses on writers and the writing industry. You already know their work because they are QT Blogger Carolyn Kaufman, and Patrick McDonald, the creator of QueryTracker.

Good luck!
