Here is my entry. I'd say FROZEN NOON is turning into a South Pole spaghetti western take on Hansel and Gretel. Unfortunately for this cowboy, he's in the story to help establish my yeti's "ordinary world."
Good luck, everyone!

I’m not voting because I’m not familiar with these books, but I’m definitely interested and hope to attend live.
Saw an SVS tweet go out for the June contest. Don’t see the info on Critique Arena or here yet, so thought I’d share for until the real thread goes up:
A second tweet if anyone wants to RT:
Greatly appreciated if so.

My first tweet is here:
Feel free to post Twitter links below and maybe we can all help boost each other. Just remember not to like any.

@Kevin-Longueil I did a local SCBWI conference last month and the agreed upon line on comps was along the lines of: They’re not required, so don’t force them. But if you can nail them – especially with books published in the last 5 years – you’ll really impress the agent(s) because it shows a) you’ve done your homework and b) your book can sell.
Since you can post about a story three times, you should consider posting at least once with the picture and once without. Agents have methods to block links and sometimes images, too, so all with images might get you blocked from view.
I think I’m calling it. Family coming into town for the weekend tomorrow. If I have time, I’d like to work on another idea.
Far from perfect, but it was fun and a growing experience. Going to just post it here right now in case I or anyone else sees something big I need to fix.
