Please join the FACEBOOK GROUP
to help keep up to date on the

(I'm just her non-evil minion) 






REMEMBER THE RULE OF: "1 - 2 - KAPOW"
1 pitch per manuscript every 2 hours

for submission details.

to show their support.

  1. I'm so excited for the #pit2pub event tomorrow. Thank you for organizing all of this and thank you to all the publishers and agents involved. By the way, the text in purple is really difficult to read. I have to highlight it before I can read it.
    Best of luck to everyone!

    1. Yes, I am not happy with the purple text but it has evaded all my attempts to change it. Urgh!

      Delete
    2. Just tried again. Failed. Feeling rather computer stupid right now. (Why doesn't this work?)

      Delete
    3. Okay, I've reset the whole blog, but there are still parts in purple. I blame Kristin, because she loves that color so much! haha

      I hope I managed to make things more readable for everyone. Good luck!

    1. #Pit2Pub is a twitter pitch party. You post your twitter pitch on twitter using the hashtags listed above. If a publisher favorites you, then you follow their guidelines regarding where to send your submission. I hope that helps!

  3. "1 pitch per manuscript every 2 hrs" = If I have one manuscript I can pitch it once every two hours or if I have one manuscript I can just pitch it once?
