We have prizes to give away for Pitch Wars!

Thursday, 6 November 2014  |  Posted by Brenda Drake



I’m so thrilled to have InkSlinger PR as our prize sponsor for Pitch Wars 2014. I know what you’re thinking. Just making it into Pitch Wars was prize enough, but we wanted to do more. The mentors, along with their mentees, with the most requests after the agent round will receive some fabulous prizes.

    This contest has been so much fun! Thanks for putting all of this together, Brenda!!

    Thank you Brenda and everyone who made this happen. It was an amazing experience! Thank You!!

  • Elly says:

    Thank you to Brenda and all the mentors, my fellow mentees and alts, and the excellent participating agents. This has been the most amazing experience!

  • I can’t say enough about what a great contest this is. I’d say I’d love to do it all over again, but I’m not that crazy. Heh. (Seriously, mentors, mentees and alts worked HARD through the couple of months.) Going through it though has been an incredible experience. I’m so glad I had the honor of participating with so many amazing writers. Thank you, Brenda, for your generosity. You have done so much for the writing community. Mad love.

  • Jaime Loren says:

    Thank you so much, Brenda, and a huge thanks to Inkslinger PR service and Savvy Authors for the generous prizes!

    Of course, all the credit for this win must go to Mary Ann Nicholson. The amount of work all the mentees put into their novels was admirable, and I’m sure they’ll all go far! Mary Ann has been a wonderful mentee, and I’m counting myself extremely lucky right now to have had the opportunity to help her, and to get to know her. 🙂

    Thanks again!!!
