QK Teams and 3rd Round Match-ups

Woo!!! After a CRAZY Round 2 (with so many amazing entries kombating so many other amazing entries), we’ve got your winners below!

Round 3 will go up on my blog on June 13—in three days! But there’s a reason for this time gap.

What is that reason?

The winners of this round (listed below) are going to be paired up with one of our AMAZING mentors. Each mentor will help two entries in getting their queries and 250 into ship-shape kombating mode. You'll be doing this by the time they finish with you.

Be careful. The winners below have until 8 PM EST on June 12 to send in their entries to QueryKombat(at)yahoo(dot)com. No corrections will be made after that, so make sure your entry is ready to go.


We'll have our amazing 10 agents come AFTER the entire contest is over (beginning of July) to make requests! They'll peruse these 16 entries and make requests at that time (they're going to do their 'Query Kombat Agent Voting' stuff in the Final Four). Yes, it will be AMAZING.

And here are the teams:

Brianna Shrum:

Mississippi Crazypants
Lies and Lovers

Vicki Weavil:

Zone Tripper
Like-Minded Individuals

Rebecca Yarros:

The Decapitator
Not Odette

Jean Oram:

Champagne and Hotdogs
Broken Jar

Richard Pearson:

Elementary Girl
Minna Gray

Jennie Bozic:

Kicking Ash

Mindy McGinnis:

Troglin Snot

Marcy Kate:

Eye Above You
Jungle Vendetta

To the actual winners:

Please please please make the most of your mentors. They are so selflessly donating their time to help you, so please, use their help! Every single one of them knows what they are talking about. Our mentors are FANTASTIC. Even more fantastic than this..

I am so excited to see all the amazing entries get even stronger. June 13th will be a fun-filled, awesome day.

Have fun!!!
