  1. It's always encouraging to see a contest for an undiscovered talent who might finally get his/her break. If a writer has a mystery MS ready to go, and with the chance of Dana Stabenow judging the material, it's certainly more than worth the entry fee.

  2. I wish everyone luck! Poisoned Pen has been a good place for authors, and I'm sure it will be an honor for the winner to be selected by Dana Stabenow herself.
