Thursday the 6th was PitMad day on Twitter, which means unagented authors everywhere showed off their chops in 280 characters or less. I joined in with one tweet, just so I wouldn’t be entirely left out. Even so, I don’t have many friends on Twitter and didn’t go in expecting much.
Inspired by Lorraine Amber’s post from a few months ago, I thought I’d ask you which (if any!) of these piques your interest. Let me know in the comments! I might try to do the pitch party in December, so it’s time to polish my sales skills.
Did you do a pitch tweet? Do you have a book you plan on querying soon? I’d love to do a query trade with you!
The humans send Commander Russus to destroy an innocent race as part of a deal to gain vital information about their enemy. Can she convince the humans to accept mediocrity in the interstellar community, especially when she isn’t even human herself?
Though a shapeshifting alien, Commander Russus is no stranger to humanity. She willingly destroys planets and races for them.
Now her admirals demand she slaughter innocents. Can she change her orders, or will she sacrifice her career to save her victims?
They call Russus ‘shapeshifting vermin,’ but her loyalty to the most murderous of races – humans – has never wavered. Now they command her to slaughter a planet of innocents. Can she win a fight against her orders, or must she betray her loved ones?
Commander Russus is sent to seal a deal her admirals made with the tree-like aliens from Tsanur. When she discovers the Tsanurians want her to save their slaving operations, she disobeys. Can she find enough evidence of the Tsanurians’ evil to save her career?
Pitch 5 (The one I Tweeted)
Russus risks her commission as the only alien aboard a human mercenary ship when she defies her admirals’ orders to destroy a planet of innocents. Can she fight through treachery, poisonings, and racism to rescue an entire species from oblivion?
Let me know what you think! While I think The Mercury Dimension (TMD) is the best thing I’ve ever written, it won’t be too long before I reveal my next major project and TMD will fall to the wayside on this blog.
Did you have a #pitmad submission on Twitter? Give me a link or a follow – I’d love to check out what you’re putting out into the world!
