Do you have a completed manuscript? Know someone who does? Sent queries but no agents/publishers are biting?
Well you’re in luck because #PitMad is back again! Three days from now, on June 4th, you’ll have a chance to pitch your completed novel on Twitter. Agents will be watching the Twitter feed for hashtag #PitMad from 8am to 8pm. Giving authors like you a chance to find an agent.
How can you participate? Well, by writing in 140 characters and less, a summary about your book. And adding the hashtag #PitMad and your novel’s category/genre, so agents can find you.
Just post twice an hour, a book summary introducing your protag(s), age/profession and their source of tension and conflict, etc. And make sure to have several different pitches to vary your posts throughout the day.
Here’s an example of a Twitter pitch I wrote for my work in progress, Nadia the Hidden Fire Witch:

PS Even if you’re not manuscript ready, you can still participate in #PitMad. Just retweet your favorite pitches, so that it can be higher on the Twitter feed. Remember, retweet, do not favorite, the pitches that piques your interest in reading the book. And or want to add to your shelf.
