Well #Pitchmas has come and gone and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised with the interest I received from agents and editors. I completely botched up the first half of the contest, which was a blog pitch, so it was no surprise to me that my 35 word pitch didn’t get selected. I created three pitches and scheduled my tweets to publish (BTW, if you’re a follower, sorry you had to put up with all my pitch tweeting). All I had to do was wait.
Until all at once, the requests came in. Some through favorites, others simply told me they liked my material. Which lead me to do this:
And at the end of the day, I walked away with 5 requests, one of which has already turned into a full submission.
Now the problem I’m having is #pitchMAS withdrawal. It was so much fun and I made so many amazing writers attempting to hook an agent or publisher as I am. None of it would have been possible without the genius idea of Jessa Russo and Tamara Mataya and for them I am thankful.
