YA Tournament of Heroines

The time is drawing near for the much anticipated YA Tournament of Heroines. I've had people on twitter asking me several questions, so I figured I would go ahead and do a post to answer some of these. Nominations for the tournament will begin at 12:01am on Thursday morning, November 17, and will close November 24th at midnight. So, you will have 1 week exactly to nominate your favorite heroine!  Then 1 week later, Thursday, December 1st, the YA Tournament of Heroines will begin!

As for advocates, we are going to require advocates to have an active blog and twitter account. You will need a blog and twitter account to spread the word about your heroine. If you are interested in being an advocate please fill out the form below. We will then contact you after nominations are final.  We will look for a natural break in the nominations of heroines, but if there's not a natural break we will keep the count between 16-20 heroines.  If we have more advocates than heroines then the ones not selected as advocates can be pinch hitters.  A pinch hitters job will be to jump in if someone else has to drop out, and to pick your teams and spread the word on your blog and twitter account.  We are so excited about this tourney!  Start spreading the word, talk to authors of who you are going to nominate, start recruiting your team members, lets represents these girls just as well as we did our crushes!!!

Don't forget to check out our Heroines Tournament Contest where the winner will receive an ARC of Incarante by Jodi Meadows.  Trust me, you want this book!!!

If you have questions, you can post them in the comments, and we will answer them.
