Hi everyone and happy President’s Day! First, congratulations to the author of IN THE RED, Kelsey Browning, for winning the critique by Deb, and to the authors of DECODING DECEPTION (Julie J.) and HELLION’S HIGHLANDER (Renee) for their full requests from Deb. Please send your synopsis and full manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because the contest rules said Deb would pick three, three names were announced, BUT, Deb couldn’t stop there. She was THRILLED with the pitches—so much that she wants to do this again—and she’d like to see MORE from the pitches we got. Yes, more!! We are thrilled for all our visitors who worked so hard to get their pitches down to 50 words and have won the chance to have their stories looked at.
Deb would like a synopsis and full manuscript from the following people as well (send to email@example.com):
A POCKET FULL OF ASHES, by Pat Shaw

From Deb (who’s on vacation):
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for the fantastic pitches. This was a lot of fun for me and also really tough! Almost impossible to choose just one! So, I didn't! I did choose one for the contest winner, but there are so many that I want to see more of.
If your pitch didn't get chosen, it was most often because the premise was something I've seen before (sometimes a whole lot of times before). So take a look--is your premise unique? Do you really have something fresh to offer in this overcrowded category? If you do, and I just didn't see it, feel free to pitch me again.
