We thought you might want a bit more peer critique for those Twitter pitches!! Use the comment section below to post your Twitter pitches and help one another hone them into lean, mean, agent/editor-catching machines!
***Don't forget that tomorrow's blog post pitches will be off-limits for commenting UNLESS you are an agent or editor making a request.***
Whether or not you are chosen as part of the Top 50 blog pitches, please join us for the Twitter Pitch Party on Friday, December 18th. This will go on *all day long*, and agents/editors will respond to or favorite the pitches they want to request. We know that *all day* is not an exact time-frame, but judge's schedules don't always allow for rigidity near the holidays. Tweet when you wake up. It ends when people are done making requests. Sometimes they come back a few times.
Sometimes they come back the next day.
Remember that your pitch MUST contain the hashtag (#PitchMAS) and if you can squeeze in a hashtag with category or genre, that's great too, but don't sweat it if you can't.
Here are a couple examples of tweets I (Jessa) used in #SFFPit and #PitMAd last year. Both versions received requests, and I eventually found my agent and a contract with REUTS for this book through these connections.
My point is...
Twitter pitching WORKS.
Just keep pitching.
Biblical rain? Check.
ARK of "dreams"? So they say.
40 days with reluctant "mate"? No thanks.
Repopulate the new world? HELL NO.
Part of a select few aboard the ARK, 20yos Ana & Marco have 40days& 40nights to change their fate or become breeders.
