Heidi Norrod is hosting another fabulous twitter pitch event for writers called AdPit. In order to participate, authors need to have a finished manuscript and tweet their 140 character pitch using the hashtag #AdPit on November 8, 2017. The contest will be between 9am-3pm CST (Chicago time). Writer’s will be allowed to pitch six times over the course of the event. (That’s once every hour, as the event is six hours long.)
This contest is open to ADULT and NEW ADULT COMPLETED, fiction and non-fiction books. And remember, be sure to research the LITERARY AGENTS and EDITORS before submissions. As always, good luck!
