There has been a frenzy of pitch contest activity this past week on Twitter, in case you weren’t already aware. I entered two – WriteonCon and PitchMadness. The first, a contest to get your query critiqued by a real-live agent, just went live today. Of course, the agent who’s been assigned to my group has yet to start reviewing pitches. But, I’m cool wit’ it. Wanna know why? Because I made it through the first round of the other contest! Brenda Drake’s PitchMadness! There were 400+ entries and only 125ish made it through to the second round. Normally, I don’t toot my own horn, but I’ve been working so dang hard on this manuscript, since 2010 (horrible, I know…but I’ve added children to my harum and have moved twice, once across the country). And this is the first recognition I’ve gotten. And dang it, it feels good. Now, back to nail-biting until March 26 or so. That’s when the next round of cuts happens…
