UPDATE: My mentee ended up with seven requests from Pitch Wars agents and one request from a ninja agent. Woohoo!
The time has come. The agent round in the Pitch Wars contest is here. For the next three days (Nov. 3-5), agents who were invited to participate in Pitch Wars will read through mentee pitches and first pages. If something hooks the agent, she’ll make her request in the comment section.
But wait. It doesn’t end there. Ninja agents (agents who haven’t been invited to participate) are able to make requests too. Whoop! However, they must make their requests through Brenda Drake, who will forward the requests to the mentee/mentor team after the agent round is over. I love that ninjas can request too.
Here’s my mentee’s entry: http://www.brenda-drake.com/2015/11/pw-414-adult-contemporary-romance-the-reluctant-princess/. If you hop over there, please refrain from commenting until after the agent round has ended. But, you can tweet about how much you love her entry or you can leave a comment here.
And, yes, you saw correctly. My mentee, M.C. Vaughan has already received
a request six requests. Woohoo! I’m beyond proud of this lady. She is a talented writer, easy to work with, and so much fun. I’m happy to call her a friend.
Good luck, Mary! You and your story rock. We’ll find it a home.
