My new bloggy friend, Deana Barnhart tagged me to answer some questions. She has a super cool blog with lots of great info. She's also hosting the query blogfest. You can find more info on the right. Check her out and follow her!
Below are my answers, but please read on for an excellent opportunity if you're in the querying phase or about to be soon.
1. DO YOU THINK YOU'RE HOT? Alright, well let's just say I wouldn't kick me outta bed. (lol)
2. UPLOAD A PICTURE OR WALLPAPER YOU'RE USING AT THE MOMENT:
3. A SONG YOU LISTENED TO RECENTLY: I've been listening to the BT Ima CD in my car. I know no one prolly knows who he is. He mixes and creates house tunes.
4. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING WHEN YOU WERE DOING THIS? How much I love my blogging friends. :)
5. DO YOU HAVE NICKNAMES? Obviously. I've been called PK since I was a baby. And of course every variation of that as well: Puck, Peekers, P dot K dot, PKayness, etc
6. TAG SOME FRIENDS: Okay so if you're reading this, consider yourself tagged. Answer these questions on your own blog and let me know in the comments so I can check it out.
Now for this amazing opportunity. Have you heard of Pitch University? AKA Pitch U? I did a post on it a few weeks back. There's an op for June for romance and YA/MG writers, and it's coming up June 12-18. There will be 6 agents on the panel and you can either submit a pitch video via YouTube or an actual query. It's an excellent op for feedback, even if you don't get a request for pages. I did it in April and got personalized agent notes on my query for my WIP. That's the best part, even if your ms isn't finished, you can still play along.
It's free and the only catch is that you have to get your pitch in before it fills up. So I'm giving it another go. How about you? Check out the deets here.
Also, if you didn't know already, Clarissa Draper does entire chapter critiques and posts them on her blog. I think I'm gonna sign up for this also. Find out more about this awesome free service here.
And last but not least, I wanted to thank my good friends, Donna Yates for awarding me the Laurel of Leaves. And also Norma Beisher for mentioning me in her blog the other day as well. These are amazing writerly women who you should be following if you get the chance. Thanks, ladies!
So what's your story? Are you in the pitching/query phase yet? If not, where are you at in your endeavors?
