Today is another installation of The Insecure Writer's Support Group, which posts on the first Wednesday of every month and is run by our Ninja Captain Alex Cavanaugh. This is a place where writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds.
Today, I'm insecure about pitches.
I'm not referring to batting, catching, pitching... of the baseball kind. I'm referring to pitches for books. If you don't know, #PitMad is coming up on September 9th! #PitMad starts at 8am and goes until 8pm. You have 140 characters to pitch your novel. You must include #PitMad and genre/category if it fits. Agents can then read the pitches and favorite them if they want to read more! There's more information on Brenda Drake's site.
I'm hoping to pitch my novella, SILENT BEAUTY. I checked and novellas are allowed to be pitched. I'm hoping a small publisher or agent who represents novellas will be interested. But I'm insecure about my pitch.
That's what I have after a few revisions. I'd really appreciate any suggestions that might help! Thank you! Are you participating in #PitMad? If you are, good luck! :)
