Many of our readers are going to be attending the RWA national conference in NY the end of June. It’s probably time to bring back “Pitch Day” on the blog.
Get out your pitches. Dust them off and whittle them down to three sentences. Then post them here. I’ll read all of them and maybe even ask for something that sounds especially intriguing. So be sure to end with your email (spelled out of course to foil the bots trolling for email addresses).
Those of our readers who are proud to be just readers…read the pitches. And tell us, “Hey, I’d like to read that book.” Writers don’t often get the opportunity to hear feedback from uninterested third parties. Why are you intrigued by a pitch?
In a rare opportunity for unpublished writers, I’ll give you a tip on one thing I’d like to see: YA science fiction in a novella length. We’ll be doing a SF anthology next year featuring NYT bestselling author Anne Bishop and urban fantasy author Anthony Francis. We have a couple more spots. If you’ve got a novella, now would be a great time to pitch it.
I’m going to ask our other editors to stop by. Your pitching doesn’t have to be confined to fantasy or SF. We publish a wide range of genres. Here are some of our recent and upcoming titles.
