Three, Two, One, Pitch Contest: Guest Judge Revealed!

It's hard to believe three months has passed and we are gearing up for another Three, Two, One, Pitch Contest. And this time our guest judge is none other than Month9Books acquisitions editor-extraordinaire, Courtney Koschel!

Courtney has been writing since she could hold a crayon. Her love for all things writing followed her to college where she obtained a B.A. in communications with a focus in print journalism. In the past seven years she has worked as a journalist, an editor, a technical writer, a technical editor, and a freelance editor. She has an undying love for YA and MG fiction. She has one completed YA fantasy novel, and is currently revising a YA horror. With that said, Courtney has a particular interest in all things creepy. She loves YA horror that will make her sleep with the light on, sci-fi, paranormal, fantasy, historical fantasy, and epic fantasy. She loves for all her stories to have a strong voice, swoon-worthy romance, and unexpected plot twists. For MG, she loves magical adventure stories. She’s especially interested in those with a male protagonist. She really loves any story that sticks with her long after she’s read it.

For this contest, Courtney would like to see the following genres:

Speculative* Middle Grade
Speculative* Young Adult

For official rules, please see this post. So, best of luck to all and, most importantly, have fun! I can't wait to read your entries! 

* From Wikipedia: Speculative fiction is an umbrella term encompassing the more fantastical fiction genres, specifically science fiction, fantasy, horror, weird fiction, supernatural fiction, superhero fiction, utopian and dystopian fiction, apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction, and alternate history in literature as well as related static, motion, and virtual arts.
