Pitch Madness 2016 Mario Kart Edition
Today we’re excited to introduce the teams for Pitch Madness. Pitch Madness is a contest to win a request from one or more of the participating agents. I will have an agent introduction post up soon. For those who don’t know about Pitch Madness, click here for THE OFFICIAL RULES.
Pitch Madness will be on four blogs and each blog host will have a co-host helping them choose their top 15 entries. Some will have a team of first readers who will check for formatting, grammar, and content and put their top picks through to the hosts. And the top 60 finalists will move onto the agent round!
Here are the hosting sites …
And now, introducing Team Bowser’s Castle hosted by Rebecca Coffindaffer along with her co-host Marieke Ninjkamp …
(They won’t be using any second round readers.)
HOST Rebecca (Weston) Coffindaffer is an author and freelance copy editor and writer with experience working in both publishing and editing. She’s also a full-time mom to her daughter, Nerd Baby, and wife to her husband, Nerd Boy. In her limited free time, she binge-watches TV shows on Netflix; creates experimental dinners in the kitchen; and uses her dog as a giant, fuzzy pillow. She writes mainly about girls kicking butt and dealing with issues, both of the supernatural and the mundane variety.
CO-HOST Marieke Nijkamp is a storyteller, dreamer, globe-trotter, geek. She holds degrees in philosophy, history, and medieval studies, and wants to grow up to be a time traveler. Her debut young adult novel This Is Where It Ends was published by Sourcebooks Fire on January 5, 2016.
