Michelle's Minions for 2017

Taking on the slush pile is a daunting task. It's such a hard task to limit ourselves to thirteen with so much wonderful available. I know the last word anyone wants to hear is 'subjective', but that's truly the best word to describe how we have to approach slush with so many contenders.

Happily, we decided thirteen picks was an unlucky number and we boosted it up to one entry for luck! We each took fourteen entries! 

With that happy news, it's time to reveal the Minions of Nightmare on Query Street 2017!

In category order:


Emily in My Head
The Grim Readers
Brian Bradley: Future Olympian


Two Tails of Amaya
Camp Freakazoid
Lies We Tell
Into the Pale
Cloud One


Flight of the Monarchs
Pale Path
Finder's Genesis
If Darkness Should Take Us

Alternative now a pick!: The Season of the Plough- YA

We are off to rough up the competition and get all the requests!

Thank you everyone and be sure to check Michael's Blog and Laura's blog for their picks.

Keep an eye on your inbox. Mentors will be contacting you through the email you used to enter the contest. If that's not your actual email because a friend mailed yours in, you'd better let us know. Each entry will get one mentor assigned to them. 

Please return your revised entry using the same format to the contest email by 11:59 PM Eastern time on October 26th. We need that time to swat down unruly formatting and create the posts before the agent round. Please do not be late. We will go live without you.

The agent round will start on October 30th! Come to see the agents Shriek, Scream, and Shiver.
