1. Unagented and aspiring MG or YA writer? Then AMM is meant for you.
Author Mentor Match, co-founded by the wonderful Alexa Donne, pairs unagented, aspiring YA and MG writers with mentors to help them with their manuscripts and guide them through the publishing process.
2. My mentor is undeniably awesome. ALL of the mentors are absolutely awesome.
Sean Easley, my mentor, provided amazing insight on how to take my manuscript to new levels, closer to being the book I've always dreamed about. Even after providing his feedback, he's been around for me for everything from reading recommendations to questions about book covers.
His MG Adventure, THE HOTEL BETWEEN, comes out September 8, 2018! Pre-order it here.
3. And submissions are opening soon!
Round 4 applications will be accepted March 16-21, 2018! If you miss this round, check the AMM website again later in the year (I recommend following Alexa Donne on Twitter for the latest updates).
4. And the other mentees?
The AMM mentees have become my writing family -- we cheer each other on, pick each other up after difficult days, and word sprint together after our day jobs.
I hope you'll submit to AMM and find your writing family, too.
