We are pleased to announce the official mentor selections for Author Mentor Match Round 5! Like every round before, we had so much talent in the inbox, and it was so hard to choose. Congratulations to everyone selected. If you don’t see your name/book on this list, unfortunately you have not been selected by a mentor.

Many mentors will be sending personalized feedback to those who were not chosen. Please give them a few weeks to do so. If you were not selected, we encourage you to continue to work on your books and submit to a future round. There are new mentors in every round, and mentorship is all about finding the right fit! Every round, mentees are selected who did not make it in previous rounds. Look for Round 6 of AMM in the Spring of 2019.
