#PitMad is upon us, tomorrow, 5th of December. For those not chasing a Literary Agent or a Publisher, #PitMad is a pitch party/event on Twitter, where aspiring authors with finished manuscripts give a 280 or less character pitch, hoping to get an industry professional to ‘like’ the tweet. This contest runs quarterly, and was designed and run by Brenda Drake.
If you happen to find yourself on twitter tomorrow between 8am-8pm EST, and you see a pitch that you are interested in, or would like to read a whole book about DO NOT ‘LIKE’ it; instead, retweet it. That’s the best way to show support for any aspiring writer. ‘LIKE’ is for industry professionals to tell the writer that they want to see more about the pitch.

Good Luck to all participants. I will be pitching Eighteen Fools, so see you there.
