Team Snow for 2017

It's that time! 

I hope everyone had a good time and learned something. Contests are for fun and meeting new friends after all!

As I said on twitter this might have been the best group of slush ever, but I only had room for sixteen. With 200+ entries that means a lot left behind. I went back and forth a dozen times before deciding. Be sure to check the Team Sun picks over at Amy's blog, and remember that contests aren't the only means to get in front of agents. 

I never made it in to any large contests, so I know exactly how you feel. I got my agent from a query. And everyone's journey is different. Keep on keeping on!

The following entries will be on Team Snow:

Middle Grade:

The Baker Beach Detective- Mystery
Seeing My Sister- Contemporary
The Last Doubloon- Contemporary (Ownvoices)
The Mojave Failures- Contemporary (Ownvoices)
I Am Becoming Annabelle, Fantasy

Young Adult:

The Lone Earth Girl- Science Fiction
Hide Me Away- Thriller (Ownvoices)
Prompocalypse- Disaster Thriller
The Art of Insanity- Contemporary (Ownvoices)
Pangea- Futuristic Thriller
The Witch and the Demon- Fantasy


To Live- Science Fiction
Dog's Breakfast- Upmarket
Notorious- Historical Mystery
Corporate Gunslinger- Science Fiction
Love Interrupted- Romance (Ownvoices)

Mentors should be contacting you soon, but give them until Tuesday night.  

Get your revised entry back to me no later than Sunday, February 5th at 3:00 pm EST. That’s so I have time to format the entries and have them ready to post for the agent round on Wednesday, February 8th. Mail your revised entry to the contest email Sunversussnow (at) yahoo (dot) com. Please use the exact same format and don't forget the Sun versus Snow question.

And do find me on twitter (@Michelle4Laughs) so I can add you to my list before the agent round! I hope everyone sticks around to party and see if Sun or Snow gets the most requests. 

Team Snow will be ready to kick it to the sun!
