I have a friend who posted her proposal with one of those manuscript services and it was accepted by Moody. She went on to win the Christy Award in the YA a couple years ago, and also the nomination in the First Book category. The author is Cathy Gohlke, and the book, which I LOVED was, William Henry is a Fine Name. She is a very gifted writer. Her second novel which is a sequel to William Henry, also with Moody, I Have Seen Him in the Watchfires, was nominated for the YA Christy this year. So it does happen. But she is the only author I know personally who received a contract that way.
