It’s Pitch Madness Day, and I’m so excited! What is Pitch Madness, you ask? It’s this incredibly fun game on Twitter, sponsored by a woman named Brenda Drake. Authors all over Twitter will pitch their novels to literary agents (and publishers?) in only the 140 characters allowed by Twitter.
Holy buckets! YOU try explaining the plot of your favorite book in 140 characters!! It’s hard! But CRAZY fun!
As a writer, I’d loved to have my book picked up and sold to a huge publishing house. I mean, who wouldn’t? But the truth is that the game is so much fun that it really doesn’t matter. So, if you’re in the mood for some entertainment, pop yourself a bowl of popcorn and head on over to #PitMad on Twitter!
BIG RULE: Please do NOT “favorite” any post unless you’re an agent or publisher.
“Favoriting” is how the authors are notified by agents to send in their queries!

If you’re interested in my book, here’s the synopsis:
Victoria Hastings Harrison Greene knows her family despises her. She’s even heard her grandchildren snigger behind her back about the “Immaculate Conception of David” — her fifth child, conceived between husbands. But Victoria refuses to die before revealing the secrets she’s held locked away for more than 50 years; the secrets only whispered about in family folklore that have made her the feared matriarch of her family. Widowed with nine children, Victoria will do anything to provide for her large family — even murder, and without remorse. Each day brings greater challenges: poverty, homelessness, death, starvation, degradation and disease. Some challenges will require despicable acts to overcome. But at what cost? Can her family understand the decisions she’s made to secure their futures?
In the meantime, best wishes to all of that authors out there madly tweeting their books! And stay tuned to see how I do!
