Friday Frenzy Twitter Pitch Workshops
Entranced Publishing has had so much fun with their first ever Friday Frenzy event, but we
know some of the authors felt a little overwhelmed, having to condense a whole query down to 140 characters or less. I mean seriously, you write a book and even condensing it to a standard query is tough. That’s why, for the next two weeks, the Entranced Publishing
authors are banding together to bring you Friday Frenzy Twitter Pitch Workshops!
First you can get some advice on writing twitter pitches on Louise D. Gornall's blog here: http://bookishblurb.wordpress.com/
My advice: Don't wing it. Plan it out and please check your spelling. I think that being on twitter makes everyone a bit more causal, but if you're looking to attract a publisher you don't want to use the wrong 'there'.
Here’s how the workshop works:
1) You post your maximum 140 character query in the space below using this formula:
Query-(Your Book Blurb-the paragraph that would appear on the back of the book):
2) I give you feedback on it.
3) You give feedback to two other people who have posted their queries – remember,
what goes around comes around. (Yes, if you're one of the first couple of people you are going to have to check back to do this. :))
I’m not alone in hosting this workshop; some of the other lovely Entranced Publishing authors
are doing it, too. So jump on over to their blogs and offer your support to Twitter pitching
authors like yourself.
Entranced is looking for romance, erotica, YA and NA submissions. You can learn more and check out Editors' Wishlists here:
Also-don't forget to follow Entranced on twitter. Only followers get to participate in #FridayFrenzy and they are giving out lots of critiques as prizes to celebrate their launch next month!
