No, it's not some sort of stomach ailment. It's Gearing Up to Get an Agent on Deana Barnhart's blog which runs through the month of September. It includes a blog hop Meet and Greet week, a Pitch Polish week, the Pitch Contest for agents, and ends with a Pitch contest for small publishers. You can join in any or all of the fun.
The Pitch Polish is in full swing this week. And by pitch Deana wants the bones of your query letter with the first one hundred and fifty words of your manuscript added into the mix. My query for Dodge the Sun is number 68. I’d love for any blog friends to drop by and leave me a comment.
Anyone interested in the Pitch Contest for agents should get their query and first one hundred and fifty words ready. The window for sending your entry starts Friday, September 14 at 11:00 am. There will be eleven agents from Middle Grade, YA, and Adult genres taking part.
