  12. I want you on my team!

    Both Rachel and I loved your entry, and since we both write sci-fi, we are SUPER picky about it. Your concept is fun and your opening 250 words have great writing and a strong voice. I do have a few tweaks in mind, and I think together the three of us can make this query and opening even stronger so agents can't say no to it. I'm excited to work with you on it!

    Welcome to #TeamTRex!

      Thank you so much, I won't let you down!
