Now that Pitch Madness is over (BTW-#TeamLibrary, y'all did awesome!) we can get into more details about NestPitch. Nikola Vukoja is running this Easter themed contest, so be sure to check out her website for ALL the details.
Today it's time to reveal the agent's/ Bunny Masks!
Each of the agents has taken on a Secret Agent Bunny Mask and your job is to identify who is wearing which Mask. (you’ll find the Agent List here)
For those who haven’t been watching/listening carefully, this is how #nestpitch will work. On April 1st, you will send us your pitch + 300. Go to here for all the rules and conditions, and please follow the rules.
As well as Adult fiction, this Cocktail Bunny wants YAthat’s creative and fresh (open to all genres) and has strong characters that are flawed yet unique. Cocktail Bunnies like their Literary/Commercial fiction with a multi-cultural bend, and will curl up with their big curly-furred dog to read smart, intelligent Mysteries and Thrillers and historical fiction. Cocktail Bunnies have a low threshold for overdone.
Bookworm Bunny is looking for Psychological Suspense with a twist (think THE OTHERS), dark, creepy, hair-raising YA & NA, clever mysteries with a keen sense of place, humorous MG series, and contemporary Romances and Women’s Fiction of all descriptions.
(3) GIANT BUNNY
This Cocktail Bunny really likes animals, Supernatural (the TV show), and Loki from the Avengers. Giant Bunny is extremely chatty on-line and very open about their style of agenting. Giant Bunny also recently got a serious hair cut; that’s a big clue! When not adopting new fury friends, Giant Bunny likes to read the gamut – Picture Books, MG, YA, Adult, Romance even PB’s for adults – hehehe
This Laptop Bunny wants innovative MG and YA projects with a pull towards more historical settings although a modern, emotional story would be welcome. Also loves contemporary Romance and Women’s Fiction and anything that really manages to surprise me.
Mad Scientist Bunnies would naturally want non-fiction, but can you believe it, this Mad Scientist is also looking for YA, MG, Adult Mysteries/Thrillers and literary fiction too – Even a Mad Scientist’s enjoy a good bit of fiction – now, can you guess who this Mad Scientist is?
Soccer Bunnies Like romance? Who Knew? Well,this Soccer Bunny does likeRomance, especially contemporary and historical (has a soft spot for Regency), YA sci-fi/fantasy, contemporary, historical–particularly partial to YA with, you guessed it, romance!
As the name suggests, this Juggler Bunny has a lot going on, balls in the air anyone? But they still have time for great writing and new Clients, as long as they are MG and YA;open to any genre within those age groups, but prefers speculative fiction.
No idea who Juggler Bunny is? Here’s a clue, could you spell this Agent’s name without looking?
Haaa-Yah! Ninja Bunny wish list: My main big wishes are brilliant storytelling and inspiring or heart-breaking characters; I want to feel like I’m living, not reading, the story. Also anything that brings me to tears either through love, fear or sadness would be wonderful – Sounds like tis Ninja likes a good cry after beating up the bad-guys!
This Artist Bunny is super hungry for MG/ YA/ AdultRomance, Fantasy and wants to curl up on the sofa with a great Mystery. And this Agent Bunny knows the business from both sides of the process;…and that’s a big clue :)
So...Get your 35-word pitch sharpened by joining us at the Post-it-Forward clinic.
Polish your Manuscript until it sparkles with fairy dust.
Submit on the 1st of April & Play along with Unmasking the Agents!
Oh…and a few final thoughts,
(i) if you come across an agent or a blogger or a bilby on Twitter or wherever, thank them for being part of this. They all give of their free time.
(ii) Play nice; art is subjective and therefore not everyone agrees all the time. Remember that when talking to or about anyone involved.
(iii) spread the word, the more that play the bigger the fun :)
