I'm more of the choosy variety. Although with my first book I entered it into several contests. I thought I would get the feedback I needed. I got feedback, but nothing constructive.
On my third book, I had critique partners. They gave me the best feedback. So I didn't feel the need to enter it into contests.
I'm curious. Will it do well? Will it make it to the finals? I just gotta know!
Hopefully, I won't be in the dumps come November!
