If any of you have a completed manuscript and need an agent, try #Pitmad. This is a one-day Twitter event where you pitch your book. Lots of agents and publishers will look at pitches that day. So basically you’ll have to boil down your book to 140 characters!! Next one is this Thursday, March 23rd, but there are lots of other dates throughout the year. Here is a link for more info: http://www.brenda-drake.com/pitmad/ — I’m doing it, so I’ll see you there! If nothing else, it’s a good exercise for creating your “elevator pitch” or logline.
