#PitchMAS Success

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.

Preparing for #PitchMAS

Thanks to the amazing efforts to @Pitchmas, there is an amazing contest about to take place for authors seeking representation and publication. I’ve been working all week to hone my twitter pitch for the upcoming #PitchMAS and I think I’m going to test the waters with these three.  You have to tweet your novel in less than 140 characters while including the genre and the hashtag #PitchMAS

PITCH1:

Hell wants to open the gates of Heaven & spark the end of days, leaving Carri & her Guardian Angel to stop a war or die trying. #PITCHMAS YA

PITCH 2:

17yo Carri & her Guardian Angel boyfriend are banned from heaven, but it’s up to them to prevent Hell from breaking in. #PITCHMAS YA/UF

PITCH 3:

Banned from Heaven for who she is. Wanted by Hell for what she can do. An ancient plot makes her a danger to both. #PITCHMAS YA/UF

 

Which (if any) are your favorite? Pitch 3 is my favorite
