Pitch Party 2014 updtate: MO' PRIZE


Guys, it's time for a prize reveal. If you weren't aware, we're planning the dual events of PitchParty2014 for Jan 4th and 5th. On the 4th, we reveal our tweet-length pitches for the work we're looking to sell. On the 5th, a 100 word pitch (pasted and/or linked on here). After each, we talk and judge and people vote and ultimately I and my secretive panel of judges (yes they aren't all stuffed animals) and on the 6th, I will announce a winner!

Now, for a prize. There will be postcards sent out to all the runner-ups (or everyone, depending on how many of us there are) but the winner will get a special prize made all the more valuable by the fact that I will be embarrassing myself for your pleasure.

If you are crowned the ultimate PitchParty Winner, you will get to choose two things that will become one thing. First, you will choose any song (the more crazy singing, the worse this will be) and then you will choose one of these voices:
  • Smeagle/Gollum
  • Zap Brannigan
  • Meatwad
  • Darth Vader
  • Some sort of horrid monster
  • Dr. Zoidberg
  • Sean Connery
  • Krusty the Klown
  • A variety of accents -- pretty much just choose.
  • Or just make up/tell me to make one up. If I can't do it we'll work it out. :D
Then, as you may have been able to guess, I will sing your song in that voice. In video format, so you'll get a little extra absurdity in your package. There's a few more voices that I couldn't remember what characters they're from that I do but just ask, given enough practise, I can get almost anyone. 

You still have two weeks to get those pitches together! How can you describe your novel in 140 characters? 100 words? You'll be surprised which one is harder :D Feel free to send your early versions to me for tips and early reads! See you soon!

  1. Journalist student Vendela meets the rich alpha male Andrej at the burlesque strip club she dances at. Their games of love and lust lead her towards memories of her past, materialized in the murder she investigates, a stalker calling her his and suspicions that Andrej is hiding something important. Can she still stand as a supernatural menace reaching through centuries shatters everything she thought she knew? How does one pick up the shards of ones broken mind? Can she do it in time to not be consumed by a darkness from times bygone?
