In case you didn't see the post on NA Alley yesterday, I shared my pitch for Sibylline Nights, ahead of YAtopia's New Adult Pitch Contest on July 10th.
Well, I'm sharing my pitch here today, in case anyone wants to have a read, and if you're so inclined offer any suggestions.
I also wanted to thank the girls at NA Alley for hosting the critique session, and offering this help to all writers entering the contest. Additional thanks to LynnRush, Sarah Nicolas, Aimee L. Salter and Juliana Haygert for your comments and suggestions on my pitch, they've been invaluable.
Here's the latest version of the pitch:
Title: Sibylline Nights
Genre: Contemporary Fantasy
Word-count: 105,831 (still in first round of edits, so this will change)
35 word pitch (This is a hard and fast rule. Pitches with 36 or more words will be immediately disqualified): Separated at birth, triplets Esmee, Maggie and Nola are reunited by their new magical abilities. Even with the Paraphysiology Intelligence Division hunting them, they choose to oppose magical terrorists intent on eradicating those without abilities.
Thoughts and opinions, thought please don't feel obliged to. I'm sure you've all had enough of me and my pitch in the last few days.
Right, I'm off to make some important revisions to the first thirty chapters of Sibylline Nights.
Finally, happy Independence Day to all my American writing buddies.
