And the results are in…

Sorry for taking so long to write this post, but it’s been Christmas and I’ve been taking a sort of hiatus from the cyber world in Tasmania – my annual summer escape 😀

I’ve sifted through all of my Twitter pitches and compiled a list of the twitches that snagged attention.

Over all three events (#PitMad, #SFFpit and #PitchMAS), 10 of my twitches were favourited (in total) by 4 publishers and 1 agent:

  • 17yo Boudica can tame vampires with her words. But she’s being hunted & must decide if her childhood beau is friend or foe. (favourited 3 times)
  • In 18c Scotland, 17yo girl must hone her ability to tame vampires if she wants to face the monsters who massacred her kin & live. (favourited twice)
  • In 18c Scotland, a smithy’s daughter & a cute vampire in a kilt must join forces to defeat the monster who massacred her kin.
  • In 18c Scotland, where hellhounds roam & witches harbor secrets, the survival of an entire clan rests with a 17yo girl.
  • For 17 years she hid in plain sight. Now the bloodsuckers who massacred her kin have found her. HARRY POTTER x VAMPIRE DIARIES.
  • Scotland 1723: To save her clan, 17yo girl must hone her vampire taming powers but it means trusting the boy who betrayed her.
  • Cute boys in kilts? Aye. Power to tame vampires? Aye. Psycho bloodsuckers butchering your loved ones, one by one? Ack, no!

You might notice several of those twitches are new – after #SFFpit, I crafted a few extra for #PitchMAS that I hadn’t included in my original posts. I ended up with 20 unique twitches. I added comp titles this time. Funnily enough, prior to crafting these twitches I’d never realised my novel shared themes with Harry Potter.

  1. What do you get when you mix the romance of OUTLANDER with the teen angst of VAMPIRE DIARIES? A Scottish love story with fangs.
  2. Scotland 1723: 17yo girl must hone her ability to tame vampires if she wants to face the monster who massacred her kin & live.
  3. She can tame the undead with her words. He chose to become undead to keep her safe. A love story inspired by Celtic folklore.
  4. To save her clan 17yo girl must choose: shun the boy who betrayed her or accept his help to harness her vampire taming powers.
  5. The vamps who killed her parents have found her. If she wants to live, she must learn to whisper. HARRY POTTER x OUTLANDER.
  6. Life is bonny when an old flame returns, until the laird’s brother demands her hand in marriage & her daddy gives it to him.
  7. Cute boys in kilts. Witches harboring secrets. Monsters masquerading as friends. Life’s complicated when you’re the Whisperer.
  8. 17yo Boudica can tame vampires with her words. But she’s being hunted & must decide if her childhood beau is friend or foe.
  9. When you’re being hunted & you don’t know it, when your survival depends on a whisper. Stiefvater’s LAMENT meets OUTLANDER.
  10. To save her clan, 17yo girl must harness her ability to tame vampires. If only she knew if she could trust the lad she loves.
  11. In 18c Scotland, vampires control the clans, until a 17yo smithy’s daughter discovers her words can control vampires.
  12. Some people can tame horses, others can sweet-talk hounds, but 17yo Boudica can force vampires to their knees…with a whisper.

  16. In 18c Scotland, where hellhounds roam & witches spin lies, the survival of an entire clan rests with a 17yo girl.
  17. When what’s in his mouth is more dangerous than what’s under his kilt. OUTLANDER x VAMPIRE DIARIES.
  18. 2200 sunsets since he was stolen from her, 6000 miles wedged between them, and all it took to bring him back was a whisper.

  20. Cute boys in kilts? Aye. Power to tame vampires? Aye. Psycho bloodsuckers butchering your loved ones, one by one? Ack, no!

I have to say, participating in #PitMad, #SFFpit and #PitchMAS was an exciting experience and I really enjoyed connecting with all the other writers who were involved. Thanks for all your support and I look forward to catching up with you again next pitch season!

Oh, and by the way, Happy New Year!
