I have some news!
Yesterday, Twitter was ablaze with #Pitchmas, an event that encouraged writers to “pitch” their books within 140 character while literary agents waited patiently to “favorite” a tweet they liked. If an agent “favorite” your tweet, you were to submit your query, 25 pages for some, first three chapters for others. I got four favorites! While I’m sure others received more, I’m so happy that despite the time difference, this could be achieved. While I’m sad that this event is over (It was only for the 20th), I’m so glad I took a chance and gave it a shot.
In other news, I got feedback from my second beta reader. Again, these are their own opinions and I ask that you respect them.
I found it to be an interesting and enjoyable take on the “I didn’t know I was a mermaid” scenario. The flow of the story was pretty good and when things start to go south for the heroine, the reader is taken by surprise.
