Jousting Peeps- College VS High school

So The Flying Cheetah, Marie at the Cheetah,  herself asked this question:
Should I stick it out with my WIP in a college setting or convert it to HS?

Oh life or at least WIP changing questions.... well here we go.

Purple for high school--- pink for college.  I have a REALLY REALLY gross piece of logic for choosing those colors, but it wasn't blog appropriated and it's too early in the morning for those sort of joke...  DAMN I should have picked the blue peeps.  Sigh, that would have been funnier.

Teaser it's a dick joke.

Into the battle arena of DOOM...
Let the battle begin.
We have a WINNER
Purple WINS!!!  Make it high school.   It's easier to market in high school than in college.  There is a movement of literature called New Adult, but it hasn't really taken off yet.

See the peeps can make all your life chooses.  YAY no more responsibility for you!

Maire, I hope you got the answer you were looking for.

Please please please post your questions in the comments.  thanks!


  1. I truly love this in a completely evil kind of way.
    Pink is so sliced in half!
    High School it is!

  2. This is awesome. I think it is great to make important decisions using Peeps. I may have to go buy another couple packages of them for this purpose.

  3. Man, I wanna go blow up some blue peeps now *snicker*. And you're totally right about making it high school YA. I was at a conference this last weekend where they tackled the college age question and said point blank that it's not a division that's selling well, if at all. :-/

  4. This is so hilarious. I'm going to miss the battling peeps once Easter is over. lol

  5. Fantastic. I got a question for the peeps: should I work on revising my contemporary or my urban fantasy?

  6. LOL! This is awesome! I have a similar question to Alicia: should I finish writing the 1st draft of my contemporary, or start revising my supernatural??

  7. The peeps have spoken!!!! And, yes, high school really did win out. I wrapped my conversion from university to prep school just last week.

    Thank you Erinn, and thank you jousting peeps. I will never question my decision again. :)

    Love, love, love this!
