. . .but not for me. The emails are out, and I didn’t get one, which means I’m not moving on to the second round of Pitch Madness. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t disappointed, but I’d also be lying if I said I’d been holding my breath. My pitch needs work. Maybe I should have gone with my gut and used the short pitch I’ve got up on authonomy. But the competition was pretty stiff; 300 or so people were culled from the competition, so I’m hardly alone in my disappointment. Besides – I’ve made a bunch of new friends, and that is quite obviously the best part of these competitions. 🙂
So for me, it’s back to querying the old-fashioned way – research and submit, research and submit. Oh, and pray. Cuz, you know, you gotta pray. A lot. The competition out there is stiff, and marketing is not my strong suit (I’m working on that). Meanwhile, there’s always the #PitMad contest on Twitter next week… 😀
Congratulations to all those moving on, and good luck in the upcoming rounds. I’ll be cheering you on from the sidelines and doing my best to keep thinking positive while I hunt for agents to add to my query list.
