Woo hoo! High five for making it in!
Hi Stephanie, I'm stopping by from the Writer's Voice Contest to wish you the best of luck! I'm following your blog now, so: nice to meet you.Your story and query both look great, too.
You know, I love this story. You need to let me read the rest of it soon :) This is such a great start - rooting for you! :)
Wow, this is good. You're a really good writer!
Sounds intriguing! And that's a great opening line! Good luck to you.
Congrats on making it in Steph! You and me are in the trenches together. All the best of luck!
Hey I think I read your query in the ABNA contest or something. Good luck! I'm #57 if you want to check me out.
Fellow Writers Voice entrant checking in - howdy!Ooo, I've seen this one before. Still think it sounds great. :) Good luck!
Wow! What a powerful set-up in that first 250! Good luck!!
Hi there! Glad to see you made it in. Here's wishing you the best of luck!
Best luck, from #30! Sci Fi all the way!
Stopped by to wish you luck!
Nice opening! Good luck!
Stopping by to wish you luck. :)
This sounds like a great read! Best of luck to you!
sounds intriguing. Best of luck.
Just stopping by to say good luck! Great opening lines!
Ooh, I love what you've done with your query. I also love this line: In his fingers, he twirls a flower that could kill me.Good luck! I would definitely read this. :)
I like this Logan guy. He better be worth saving. :)
I've seen your query somewhere before, but I can't think where. Nice to see some of the writing that goes with it. Well done. Good luck! : )
Congrats on making it in, and best of luck!
Love this query! I've told you this though before. Great voice, unique plot. The first 250 sets the story up and I'm left as a reader wanting to know what's Clementine's scheme she's cooking up and how she's going to help Logan.Best wishes.
Congratulations on making the list, best of luck, and love the tension and world-building and everything so smoothly integrated into one here ^_^
Interesting premise. I really enjoyed the excerpt. Good luck!-Sarah #146
Great work here. You've got at least 3 big items that have me interested in figuring out what's going on. You've managed to do a great job of building a world in a small amount of words. Once again, good luck!
Really cool concept. Good luck!!!
Stopping by to say good luck one contestant to another!
Wow! Talk about intense opening! You really got right into it, didn't you? I love it :-) Good luck! -Darci #128

Awesome! I saw your post on QT and thought I'd come take a look. I'm glad I did. You've got a great chance. Great premise. Great first line of the query!-Ryan#122
This opening has changed SO much since the draft I read. You did an awesome job! I'm glad we're in this together!
Oh! Interesting. DEADLY MOON IS DEADLY.This is a tad new to me (I'm not a big Sci-Fi reader) but it's an interesting concept.Now, if blogger will actually let me write this comment...Best of luck!- Cara #41
Ooh, interesting! Good luck!-Alex #85
The first line in your 250 was enough to keep me going. Good luck!Entry #31
Absolutely love the premise. I'm such a sucker for Sci Fi ;o) Great job on the 250 too. Good luck!!
I wish I could keep reading! Best of luck!Nikki (Entry #160)
I love the part about the moon... never thought about it that way. Very cool.Lisa (#59)
Best of luck! :)
Fellow AQCer here to say hi :) I love how the Underground is first a refuge, and then it becomes a suffocation. I actually felt the change from your query. Really, really nice job with the change of mood! I want to know how she gets out and rescues Logan too. Nice work, and good luck!SC (#159)
Good luck, Steph! :D
Interesting concept. You caught my attention with the flower. :)Good luck!Tina (#194)
Love the premise of this. Love the last lines of the query, and the first and last lines of the opening. Best of luck!-George (#49)
Dear Stephanie,I love the suffocating nature you give to this opening – absolute classic. And the deadly flower is a page turner – not bad in 250 words. Good Luck BabeCheers Jacky (#130) xxx
See, Clementine? YOU SHOULD HAVE NEVER LEFT LOGAN. (But I'm glad she did, because hey, otherwise, we would have never had this story.)YA Sci-fi YAY!!!! *geeky high-five* Rooting for you so hard!!!!
Very nice Stephanie! Love the intensity :)
Good Luck From Entry #165- Random Andrews
I love sci-fi.Best of luck!Carolyn, #157
