It was a tough decision. There may have been some tears, some begging, some desperate pleas for second reads from the amazing Kara Reynolds. But at the end of the day, we whittled the original 200+ entries down to one amazing team that I can't wait to share with you.
If you were chosen, you should get an email from your mentor today or tomorrow. Please reach out to me on Twitter if you do not hear from your mentor by Friday.
Here they are, in no particular order:
THE GOODNIGHT IRENES
DOUBLE-CROSSING THE BRIDGE: A TROLL HEIST
ONCE UPON A TYPEWRITER
GIRL IN THE MACHINE
THE CRY OF A THOUSAND BLACKBIRDS
ADVENTURES FROM THE LEDGE
THE WHITE LADDER
THE CANDY CANE CONSPIRACY
THE DEMANDS OF GRACE
Why, yes, that's FIFTEEN entries instead of thirteen! How did that happen? Well, we were concerned that thirteen might turn out to be too unlucky, so we threw in a couple extras for good measure. CONGRATULATIONS to everyone who was chosen!
If you made it, send me a shoutout on Twitter so I can follow you. And everyone be sure to check Michelle's and Mike's blogs to meet their teams, too.
