Hello! Congrats on finishing your manuscript. I’m a Pitch Wars-mentee-turned-three-time-mentor and author (my Pitch Wars entry Hollywood Homicide is out August 8! Eek! It was just named Library Journal’s August Debut of the Month. Double Eek!) who gets way too much joy in creating themes for my wishlist. My first year I did “Marry, Shag, Kill” and last year was an Idris Elba theme. This year, I’m doing #CheckMyResume.
One of the very first Pitch Wars mentees, Sarah Henning, was my mentor in 2014, starting a mentee-turned-mentor tradition that extended to me and my 2015 mentee, Kristen Lepionka. (Hopefully it’ll extend to you one day too!) Having been on both sides, I know you’re combing through tons of wishlists hoping to find The One so I’ll get right to the point about why it’s hopefully me.
If you’re having trouble reading my “resume” or want to check one of the hyperlinks, you can click the resume image below or click here: Pitch Wars Wishlist.
As a final note, I’ve given feedback to everyone who’s submitted to me the past two years and I’m really hoping to do the same again this year. As a long-time crime fiction lover, I want to see as many mystery, thriller and suspense books published as possible.
Pitch Wars is amazing AND, honestly, you’ll be in good hands no matter which mentors you submit to. Of course, I’d love for you to pick me!
Now back to the Mentor Blog Hop, which you can also find here. (Fun fact: This Linky code and I have had a rap-worthy beef for three years now. It does not like me. I do not like it.)
