Wow, that was fun! I found out late last night (here in the UK) that Carina Press were running their annual #carinapitch Tweet Day. Brush up those Elevator Pitches, authors! and pitch to a dozen Carina Editors in the length of a Tweet.
(PSST Subscribe to their blog and you can bookmark it for next year :D.)
Isn’t it a brilliant idea? Maybe a novelty, I know, and not intended to be a substitute for proper, ongoing, submissions procedures, but for me, it was the chance to pitch a story I hope will fit perfectly in one of their imprints, there’s time to get it polished even further before submitting (if requested), PLUS the chance to keep practising my Blurb skills!
And fascinating and educational to read everyone else’s pitches, too.
