For those of you who haven't heard, on July 10th YAtopia are hosting a New Adult pitch contest.
In the wee hours of July 10th (EST, like all of our contests here), the official pitch contest post will go up at yatopia.blogspot.com. To enter the contest, you must post the following information as a comment on that post before 11:59 PM on July 10th. The pitch contest will be closed if 100 entries are submitted, no matter what time of day it is. One pitch per person.
- Your name
- Your email address
- 35 word pitch (This is a hard and fast rule. Pitches with 36 or more words will be immediately disqualified)
Sara and Heather will pick their winners and we will post the results within the week. We have no rule that says both Sara and Heather can't request the same manuscript! The number of winners depends entirely on the quality of the pitches! There is no pre-set number of winners so they may request ten pages from one person or they could request fulls from all of you – it’s all up to you!
That is why…
NA Alley, THE blog dedicated to New Adult fiction, is going to help everybody out by hosting a pre-pitch critique session on July 3rd!
On July 3rd, they’ll put up a post where you can post your pitch in the comments and receive feedback from other contestants, as well as YAtopia and NA Alley contributors, and Special Guest Lynn Rush, new adult paranormal romance author! All they ask is that you critique three other pitches.
