The day of reckoning is upon us and I can reveal my Pitch Wars Top Pick. So without any further ado, I announce my number one, awesome, totally gonna-blow-the-pants-off-this-gig mentee...
JENNIFER SHANNON - AWAKENINGS!
Things you need to know - Jennifer won because her plot has seriously MAHOOSIVE kahoonas. Really digs deep into the whole dark and gritty thang, know what I mean? And she has uber tight pacing that just drags you right into the story. There is a really awesome premise here that is itching to find a huge wealth of readers. I so want to be part of that journey!
Now don't get me wrong, we got some work to do to shine this puppy up for the state fair, but GOD DANG I got me a live one here!
As for everyone else - you guys gave some super HOT competition in the inbox. It went right down to the nail on this one. I had a lot of entries and not one was of poor quality. There were at least eight that I would have requested a full read through had I had the time to do them all.
For now though, I'm going to let you know who came in second and third place:
Mad As A Hatter by Alexandra Hayman
Whispers of Disaster by Stacey Trombley
Both of these submissions really caught my eye, so I'd like the writers to know if they want to contact me over any aspect of their work, they can feel free to do so. Anything I can do to help these two writers on their path, I'd do it in a heartbeat!
That doesn't mean I don't wish I could help everyone else too. I wish I could. I wish I had enough time in the day to work with you all on your novels. But, alas, I have only so much time I can devote. Just know that if I didn't pick your project, it doesn't mean it isn't going to be AMAZING. Remember, every great writer in the world got a rejection at some point!
For now, I need to hand Jennifer her gun and her KICK ASS monkey mentor. It's time for battle. BRING. IT. ON!
