Awesome! This judge is named. Check the comments for the answer and stay tuned for another round!

Ready for another of our little game of Name that Judge? The last one went so quick, I added an afternoon edition.There are 34 judges from Query Kombat, all with nicknames they used to vote. All are agented or published writers with experience in this business. 

Some have agreed to join me and give away a prize to whoever guesses their nickname. You can find their bios at Mike's blog, SC's blog, and my blog. (No, I'm not providing the links. Where's the fun in that? But look in the May archive.) I will provide the list of judge names. Guessed judges are marked off.

This judge's nickname was MoulinMystery. And they have provided a few hints:

1. This author is from the South
2. This author was referred to as "Simon" in their voice lab, for being super harsh (albeit correct). 
3. This author's book is scheduled to come out in February of 2016. 

First one to correctly name this judge gets a first chapter critique from MoulinMystery! I'll put a time limit of five days on this, but hopefully we won't need to worry about such things.

Other rules. Let's see...

You don't have to have entered or been picked for Query Kombat to play. Anyone may try and Name That Judge. There will be other posts with fresh judges coming up soon. You may enter more than one Name That Judge post. Though to be fair, you may only win once. You may only guess once on each post. You must leave a way to reach you--twitter handle or email address.



  1. This sounds like Richard Pearson! Is Arkansas considered the South? (My contact: @ashleyjeanne)

    1. You guys are really good at this! Yes! It's Richard. I'll pass along your information.
