Why Twitter pitch? Because if you can't get your book in a Twitter pitch, you need to work on narrowing down the story and hook. You can check your character count either on Word (file, Tools/Word Count/Characters with spaces), on Twitter, or here.
- Your pitch MUST only be 140 characters to be counted so please check it twice! This includes spaces and punctuation so you might have to be creative. If your pitch is over 140 characters when I test it, it will not be eligible.
- Your pitch must be for children. No adult books. They do not represent them.
- This is for unagented/unpublished book writers only. (if you've published articles or essays - you may enter!)
- You can only enter ONCE so choose wisely!
- You must be a follower of my blog (and I'd love to see you on Twitter too). It's only fair to those who are .
