#PitMad Prep

I'm waiting for #pitmad (the twitter pitch party on 3/29) to start...and I'm rewriting my pitches...

Dum-de-dum...willing to crit yours if you'll crit mine...The first is for my MG fantasy. I like this one. The other three are for my YA contemporary...still playing with it.

***



The assignment is Toenail not Tooth; but for Moth, rappel hook beats pink tutu any day! Think Tinkerbell meets Artemis Fowl. MG  #pitmad

Kate is sure Scott didn’t torch the 8th Green. Proving it is harder than beating him at golf, especially since he won’t deny it. #pitmad

When Scott won’t deny torching the 8th Green, proving he’s innocent is more important to Kate than winning the big tournament. YA  #pidmad

Money stolen, the 8th green torched; Kate spies on her friends to solve the crime and save the family golf course from ruin. YA  #pidmad

I like the last two :) Good luck with #pitmad :)

I like the third one best. It has the most flow to it and really draws me in.

Here's mine: Hogtied, kidnapped and stuffed in a trunk, 17yo Abby learns her boy problems mean nothing compared to killers taking RPG too far. #PitMad YA

Thanks Jamie!

Krystal--I'm intrigued by yours...but I don't know what RPG means. I might ramp up the terror more? Good luck!

Thank you! RPG means role playing games. :-)

I prefer the last one.

Here's mine: 15yo book nerd has to solve BFF's murder before he goes on trial for a crime he didn't commit. YA murder mystery

Kristine Asselin said...

Thanks Kathleen. I love "book nerd"...can you hint at the crime? or who might have committed it? Might ramp up the stakes?

Kathleen said...

Redo: 15yo book nerd Evan's BFF is shot with Evan's gun. He has to solve the murder before he goes on trial for a crime he didn't commit.

Love the revision, Kathleen.
