For those of you who didn’t make the cut into Pitch Madness and those who just want to join us, we’re holding an After the Madness Twitter Pitch Party. So get your 140 character twitter pitch ready. Make sure to include the hashtag #PitMad and try to fit the genre (YA, MG, Adult, NA, and so on) in the pitch. We’ve had some success stories come out of our previous #PitMads so shine up the pitches!
Please keep in mind, we never know what agents or publishers will be on the hashtag. It’s an open call. Also, read this post about querying agents and submitting to publishers simultaneously (hint: it’s a big no, no).
The rules are simple. All genres/categories are welcomed. Throughout the day tweet your pitch. Try not to do it too much. When you see an industry professional on the feed, tweet it once. Make sure to include the hashtag and your genre/category (if you can fit it). The agents/publishers will tweet their submission preferences and @ you or favorite your tweets if they want to see more. Don’t tweet them directly unless they ask. And finally, be nice and courteous to each other, and especially to the industry professionals.
I’ve started a thread on CPSeek in the contest discussion area for all to critique each others pitches.
Come back on September 10 at noon (EST) to watch the Agent Game for Pitch Madness! This is going to be fun!
