Today is the day for two 1 line pitch blogfest/contests. Actually, I think I got the rules mixed up a bit for them, so hopefully what I submitted to the contest will be alright. *sigh* (the kids are home today and the noise is already unbearable.) Think I'll hide in the closet for writing time today.
Anyway, the first contest is over at Operation Awesome: Mystery Agent contest.
As of 8:19am there are 9 entries, so go now!
The second thing going on today is a twitter size pitch/blogfest hosted by Shelley Waters. You can sign up on Mr. Linky, post your twitter pitch on your blog, receive feedback and then submit it for a chance to win a full MS request from the amazing Susie Townsend! Yes, you read that right! (She's on my "save until you're sure you're ready" list.)
"Suzie represents adult and children’s fiction. She is actively looking to build her adult list and specifically interested in romance (historical and paranormal), and fantasy (urban fantasy, science fiction, steampunk, epic fantasy). She also loves Middle Grade and YA novels (all subgenres, but particularly literary projects)."So, I thought the Secret Agent contest WAS the twitter length (140 characters) pitch. This is what I submitted:
Genre: Science Fantasy
As her nightmares of invasion and death become reality, a scientist embraces forgotten magic to save her world from an ancient evil. (132 characters)
As her nightmares of invasion and death become reality, a scientist embraces forgotten magic to save her world from humanoid dragons.
Thoughts, suggestions? All are welcome, and thanks in advance.
Now I'm off to read the other entries.
