Pitch Wars is over and I didn’t get a nibble. Quite honestly, I didn’t expect one. EDEN’s last hurrah now rests in the hands of Harper Voyager. Unitl they send me some kind of a response, EDEN still has a puncher’s chance. Cue the theme from Rocky.
There were other entrants left out in the cold too. My good friends over at Mystic Cooking were left on the side of the road as the bus rolled by and the rain poured down. I was a bit shocked. Their story seemed like a lock to get some requests. I’m sure their ever after is still to come.
Another friend of mine, Jani, was the next one in line when the concert tickets sold out. The vendor put the sign up and left her standing there. We talked about it some and she’ll be back stronger than ever. She’s got a new cornerman in me. Cue that Rocky music again. We’re going to climb those steps…LIKE A BOSS!
Jae got one full request. All her hard work paid off. A pretty good agent requested her manuscript, and 33 others too! Dang, that’s a lot of reading. I don’t know what Jae is going to do in the meantime, it may be a long wait for a response. Good luck, Jae! I’m rooting for you.
I’m glad I entered Pitch Wars. I met some really great people. The experience was worth my time. I’m glad I had realistic expectations going in. Even though I didn’t receive a request, I’m not dejected. If anything, I’m more determined than ever. I love a good challenge. When I snap those heads around with my shiny new manuscript, I’ll smile. I was there the whole time and nobody noticed just like Judd Nelson in the Breakfast Club. You know what, I’ll take that. I’m the Breakfast Club of horror writers. Boo-ya. *drops mic* *walks off*
