Last week I entered my and Gabi Mara’s graphic novel UNICORN SWORD , in #PitMad. Pitmad is a Twitter pitch contest in which participants must fit their entire book pitch into a single Tweet under the #PitMad hashtag (and additional hashtags as appropriate). From 8 am to 8pm Eastern US time, literary agents and editors trawl the hashtags for possible submissions. A Like from them indicates they’d like to see more, and is considered an invitation to query them.
It was incredibly fun- I love writing synopses, really! And the challenge to condense 150 pages of dialogue (the equivalent of 200 comics pages) into 140 characters- this is the thrill that writers live for (I guess. In a parallel universe).
Anyway! Lots of favorable responses, and a very exciting 12 hours. We’ll see where this goes!
