SOME KIND OF MAGIC! by Pitch Wars mentor Mary Ann Marlowe . . . Release Day and Giveaway!

Title: SOME KIND OF MAGIC Author: Mary Ann Marlowe Publisher: Kensington Publication Date: January 31, 2017 Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble   About SOME KIND OF MAGIC . . . “An amazing first novel.” —Sydney Landon, New York Times bestselling author In this sparkling debut novel, Mary Ann Marlowe introduces a hapless scientist who’s swept off her feet by a rock star—but is it love or just a chemical reaction?…   Biochemist Eden Sinclair has no idea that the scent she spritzed on herself before leaving the lab is designed to enhance pheromones. Or that the cute, grungy-looking guy she meets at a gig that evening is Adam Copeland. As in the Adam Copeland international rock god and object of lust for a million women. Make that a million and one. By the time she learns the truth, she s already spent the (amazing, incredible) night in his bed.   Suddenly Eden, who’s more accustomed to being set up on disastrous dates by her mom, is going out with a gorgeous celebrity who loves how down-to-earth and honest she is. But for once, Eden isn’t being honest. She can’t bear to reveal that this overpowering attraction could be nothing more than seduction by science. And the only way to know how Adam truly feels is to ditch the perfume—and risk being ditched in turn.   Smart, witty, and sexy, Some Kind of Magic is an irresistibly engaging look at modern relationships why we fall, how we connect, and the courage it takes to trust in something as mysterious and unpredictable as love. Excerpt from SOME KIND OF MAGIC . . . I scanned the rest of the room. I wasn’t surprised to see hehad a turntable. Micah had been buying vinyl for years. An entertainment unit held a wide-screen TV and a stack of DVDs. I walked over to check out his movie collection. A Netflix envelope sat on top, and I read the address. The name rang a bell.   “Adam Copeland?”   Then I remembered. Stacy and Kelly had crushed on a rock singer with the same name for a few weeks last summer, another impossibly hot guy with red hair. No, wait, that was a different band. I could never keep their celebrity crushes straight.   My eyes went wide. What if this was that same guy? They would die. He was a musician, after all. A wave of nausea crested as I took in my surroundings. The guy certainly hadmoney.   Adam glanced up from a stack of records and caught me staring at him. “What?”   “Your name is Adam Copeland?” My mind raced. The...

A Pitch Wars Success Story with Rachel Griffin and her mentor Heather Ezell

  When our mentees land an agent or a publishing deal, it’s one of the highlights of being part of Pitch Wars. We’re so excited for Rachel Griffin and her mentor, Heather Ezell. Rachel signed with Melissa Sarver White of Folio Literary Management after Pitch Wars 2016, and we couldn’t be happier for her! Please, help me in congratulating Rachel and Heather on their Pitch Wars Success!   Rachel, what was it about Heather that made you choose to send her a Pitch Wars application? Heather was so approachable online, and when I read her mentor bio, I was sold. My initial reaction after reading Heather’s bio was, “I really want to be friends with this person!” It also didn’t hurt that the elements she was looking for lined up well with my manuscript. One of the things I love about Heather is that she’s so genuine, and that came through well before we started working together for Pitch Wars. Heather, what was it about Rachel’s SHADOWS CAST BY DREAMS that hooked you? Oh, it was absolutely Rachel’s premise. She basically had me at hello. A car crash + brain tumor leading a girl and a boy to fall in love in a dream? Yes, please. I’ve always been so compelled by dream stories and Rachel had clearly twisted the norm. Her query snagged me quick with what it promised and I knew I needed to read her manuscript ASAP. Rachel, tell us about the revision process for Pitch Wars? It was intense! My first order of business was to rewrite my manuscript from third person past to first person present, then dive into everything else. It ended up being a massive rewrite, and Heather was such a dream to work with. I entered Pitch Wars because I felt that something was missing from my manuscript, but I didn’t know what – Heather helped me find the things that were missing. On top of providing amazing feedback, she was so encouraging throughout the entire process. Not to mention she read my manuscript THREE times in less than two months. My manuscript got stronger with each revision, and so did my writing. And on top of everything, I made a wonderful friend. Heather, tell us about your experience mentoring Rachel. It was an absolute delight. This was my first time mentoring in Pitch Wars (after being an alternate mentee in 2014) and Rachel made the process so incredibly rewarding. She spoiled me with her open mind and ruthlessness toward her drafts. I challenged her to take significant risks (hello, total POV change!) and, without fail, she went far beyond my expectations. She still inspires me with...

She has been with Andrea Brown since 2010 and is also the agency’s Digital Manager.

Professionally, the FBI team of Aidan “Irish” Talley and Jameson “Whiskey” Walker is as good as it gets, closing cases faster than any team at the Bureau. Personally, it’s a different story. Aidan’s feelings for Jamie scare the hell out of him: he won’t risk losing another love no matter how heart-tripping the intimacy between them. And loss is a grim reality with the terrorist Renaud still on their trail, leaving a pile of bodies in his wake. Going undercover on a new case gets them out of town and off the killer’s radar. They’re assigned to investigate an identity theft ring involving a college basketball team in Jamie’s home state, where Jamie’s past makes him perfect for the role of coach. But returning to the court brings more than old memories. As secrets and shocking betrayals abound, none may be more dangerous than the one Jamie’s been keeping: a secret about the death of Aidan’s husband that could blow his partner’s world apart and destroy forever the fragile bonds of trust and love building between them.

Pitch Wars Success Story with Yael Mermelstein and her mentor Jessica Vitalis

  When our mentees land an agent or a publishing deal, it’s one of the highlights of being part of Pitch Wars. We’re so excited for Yael Mermelstein and her mentor, Jessica Vitalis. Yael signed with Saba Sulaiman of Talcott Notch Literary Services, LLC after Pitch Wars 2016, and we couldn’t be happier for her! Please, help me in congratulating Yael and Jessica on their Pitch Wars Success! Yael, what made you decide to send a Pitch Wars application to Jessica? How do I choose thee, let me count the ways. Her ‘favorites’ reading list echoed my own, she planned on being highly editorial and I knew I needed/wanted that, she was already an experienced Pitch Wars mentor, and I really connected with her personality when I watched the mentors video chat. Jessica, what about Yael’s application made you choose her? That’s a great question! When I first reviewed Yael’s application, I couldn’t figure out what an award-winning author with several published books could possibly want from me. After skimming her application, I set it aside, assuming she was way overqualified. But as I read through my submissions, I kept returning to her material. Her writing was literary and gorgeous, but at the same time fun and quirky. Plus, I was drawn to the themes in her story. I emailed Yael and asked for her manuscript along with a synopsis and soon realized that Yael’s already incredibly writing would be a great match for my plotting skills. Her warm, down-to-earth personality sealed the deal. Yael, tell us about the revision period for Pitch Wars? Yael, tell us about what it’s like to feel like you’re wasting time because you’re breathing? Jessica is a perfectionist (in a good way), which is why she’s had so much success guiding her mentees in this contest. I knew she expected quite a big rewrite on the second half of my book as we had corresponded prior to her selecting me as her mentee. But I don’t think I fully grasped the enormity of the commitment. Being rather ‘type A’ myself, there was no way I was going to let her down and so regardless of all of my other commitments—family, work and otherwise, I was going to whip this MS into shape. Under Jessica’s expert tutelage, I did that. I can’t vouch for how well those other compartments in my life managed during this time period though! Jessica, tell us about your experience with mentoring Yael. How was mentoring your other team members? Working with Yael was intense. I asked her to rewrite an enormous portion of her manuscript, including the entire second half. Despite her other commitments...

A Pitch Wars 2015 Success Story with Emily Ungar and her mentor, Stefanie Wass

  Having our mentees land an agent or a publishing deal is one of the highlights of being part of Pitch Wars. We’re so excited for Emily Ungar and her mentor, Stefanie Wass. Emily signed with Kerry Sparks of Levine Greenberg Rostan Literary Agency after Pitch Wars 2015, and we couldn’t be happier for her! Please, help me in congratulating Emily and Stefanie on their Pitch Wars Success. Emily, what was it about Stefanie that made you choose to send her a Pitch Wars application? This was my third time applying to PitchWars and my second time applying with a middle grade book. I read Stefanie’s bio in previous years and thought she sounded wonderful—warm, engaging, and incredibly supportive. When I applied in 2015 with a contemporary heartfelt novel, I instinctively thought about Stefanie but then second-guessed myself. This was a lesson for me in learning to trust my gut. But luckily another mentor to which I had applied passed my submission to Stefanie, and a match was made! Stefanie, what was it about Emily’s SCARLET RUNNER BEAN that hooked you? I was hooked by the authentic characters, pitch-perfect middle grade voice, and the amazing premise. Emily, tell us about the revision process for Pitch Wars? Stefanie is so amazingly organized and efficient that she had notes for me right away. I was able to use the excitement and momentum of being chosen and channel that into getting a head start on revisions. She made incredibly thoughtful suggestions and comments. I’m a spreadsheet lover, and I organized each suggestions into a row in an Excel document and tackled them one by one so it didn’t seem so overwhelming! I took several weeks to tackle the first pass and then Stefanie read my revisions quickly and got back with me with notes for the second pass. She was encouraging through email and Twitter and I knew she was with me every step of the way. It’s been a year and a half since we began working together and we still check in with each other. I’ve found a writing mentor and friend for life, and I feel so incredibly thankful for her. She is truly my writing guardian angel! Stefanie, tell us about your experience mentoring Emily. Emily was a dream mentee! She was open to feedback, timely in revisions, and ready to push her writing to the next level. She never complained about my nit-picky revision notes, either! Emily, after Pitch Wars, you signed with Kerry Sparks of Levine Greenberg Rostan Literary Agency. Please, tell us about “The Call.” We love all the details about the offer, how they contacted you, how you...

A Pitch Wars Success Story with Dianne Freeman and her mentor, E.B. Wheeler

Having our mentees land an agent or a publishing deal is one of the highlights of being part of Pitch Wars. We’re so excited for Dianne Freeman and her mentor, E.B. Wheeler. Dianne signed with Melissa Edwards of Stonesong Literary Agency after Pitch Wars 2016, and we couldn’t be happier for her! Please, help me in congratulating Dianne and E.B. on their Pitch Wars Success. Dianne, what was it about E.B. that made you choose to send her a Pitch Wars application? Emily liked history and mystery so I thought we’d be a good fit. Reading her bio gave me some insight to her personality—humor, intelligence, and kindness. I could tell she’d have a good eye for the weaknesses in my writing. I knew I’d love every minute of working with her and I was right! E.B., what was it about Dianne’s A LADY’S GUIDE TO ETIQUETTE AND MURDER that hooked you? The voice. It’s appropriately old-fashioned for a historical mystery, but not too stuffy, and it’s full of this great, dry humor. Dianne, tell us about the revision process for Pitch Wars? I had a bit of a head start on this. While Emily was still deciding on her mentee, she sent me some notes on the big-picture issues she’d want to work on, to see if I was open to them. I thought they were such good ideas, I dove right in, never thinking she’d actually pick me. So when she sent her big-picture edits, I was ready. We did a second pass for line edits, ten first chapters, and twenty first pages! Okay, I’m exaggerating a bit, but we really worked toward perfecting them. E.B., tell us about your experience mentoring Dianne. Dianne was great to work with. She was enthusiastic about strengthening her manuscript, and she took my feedback and ran with it. If I suggested something that didn’t fit for her vision of the story, she was good about talking it through with me so we could find a solution we both agreed on. Dianne, after Pitch Wars, you signed with Melissa Edwards of Stonesong Literary Agency. Please, tell us about “The Call.” We love all the details about the offer, how they contacted you, how you responded, celebrations, emotions . . . How long did you have to wait and how did you distract yourself? Anything! We love hearing about all of it. Melissa sent an e-mail saying she’d like to “chat” and we scheduled the call for two days later. I had plenty of time to prepare, so I way over-prepared. I made a list of questions for her and a list of questions she might...

A Pitch Wars Success Story with Elissa Dickey and her mentors, Kara Leigh Miller and Meredith Ireland

Having our mentees land an agent or a publishing deal is one of the highlights of being part of Pitch Wars. We’re so excited for Elissa Dickey and her mentors, Kara Leigh Miller and Meredith Ireland. Elissa signed with Sharon Pelletier of Dystel, Goderich & Bourret after Pitch Wars 2016, and we couldn’t be happier for her! Please, help me in congratulating Elissa, Kara, and Meredith on their Pitch Wars Success. Elissa, what was it about Kara and Meredith that made you choose to send them a Pitch Wars application? We’d interacted on Twitter, and they were both extremely kind and helpful (and had excellent gif skills). When I read their wish list, my story seemed to be a good fit, with light sci-fi like Station Eleven and romantic elements. The moment they suggested Thelma and Louise in the apocalypse was truly a cloud-parting epiphany-type moment! Mentors, what was it about Elissa’s THOSE WE LEFT BEHIND that hooked you? Kara: Her opening pages. They were so full of a haunting, creepy tone, which I love, and when I got to the end, I was like, “Wait, that’s it? Where’s the rest?” I just knew I had to request more and keep reading. Meredith: For me, it was her stellar concept. I loved the idea of an action heavy apocalyptic women’s fiction. We went straight from the sample to a full request! Elissa, tell us about the revision process for Pitch Wars? It was intense. There’s that moment at the beginning when you get the edit letter where you think: Can I do this? But your mentors are with you every step of the way with support and guidance. Kara and Meredith helped me tell the story in the best way possible, so I got to fall in love with my manuscript all over again. I learned so much about writing and loved those moments when something finally clicked craft-wise. (It’s kind of like Keanu at the end of the Matrix.) Mentors, tell us about your experience mentoring Elissa. Kara: Elissa said it all—It was intense. We had a LOT of edits for her, including cutting an entire POV and completely rewriting the ending. At first I was a bit worried it was too much and that she’d be overwhelmed, but she came out swinging. She tackled all of our edits and did it with a smile. Her eagerness to learn and implement what we taught her made the whole experience that much better. We’re so proud of how far she’s come. Meredith: Elissa had an amazing work ethic. Although we were hooked with that first chapter, the remainder of the book required major revisions. She...

Happy Release to PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES by Stacey Trombley! Here’s something about this awesome book …   Myra goes to Haiti with one goal: take the photograph that will win a scholarship and prove to her uber-traditional family that she has what it takes to be a photographer instead of a doctor. Her camera has always been her shield against getting too close to anyone, but she didn’t expect the hot teen translator who has an ability to see past her walls.   Elias needs his job as a translator to provide for his siblings. He can’t afford to break the rule forbidding him from socializing with a client. Except this girl Myra insists on going outside the city to capture the perfect picture, and he steps in as her guide in order to keep her safe.

She went on her first missions trip to Haiti when she was twelve-years-old, and is still dying to go back. Her “places to travel” list is almost as long as her “books to read” list. She wants to bring something new to the world through her writing, but just giving a little piece of herself is more than enough. You can find her online at www.StaceyTrombley.com and on twitter...

A Pitch Wars Success Story with Julie Clark and her mentors, Karma Brown and Susan Bishop Crispell

Having our mentees land an agent or a publishing deal is one of the highlights of being part of Pitch Wars. We’re so excited for Julie Clark and her mentors, Karma Brown and Susan Bishop Crispell. Julie signed with Mollie Glick of Creative Artists Agency after Pitch Wars 2016, and we couldn’t be happier for her! Please, help me in congratulating Julie, Karma, and Susan on their Pitch Wars Success. Julie, what was it about Karma and Susan that made you choose to send them a Pitch Wars application? Aside from the fact that I love their books, what really made me want to work with them was the promise of “the most intense edit of your life”. I was drawn to that because I knew something wasn’t working with my manuscript, but I was too close to be able to see it clearly. Karma and Susan, what was it about Julie’s THE ONES WE CHOOSE that hooked you? The premise of THE ONES WE CHOOSE piqued our interest immediately. It promised an emotional women’s fiction story and did not disappoint. The manuscript was also one of the most polished submissions we received. We could tell right away that Julie had already worked hard to get the manuscript in great shape, and she seemed eager to do whatever it took to take it that last big step from “close” to “there”. Julie, tell us about the revision process for Pitch Wars? Karma and Susan suggested some big changes to my storyline. They were able to see immediately what worked and what didn’t – and the best part was that they were available for brainstorming. They weren’t lying when they said it was going to be intense. I look back on the two months and feel like if I wasn’t teaching or sleeping, I was writing. I threw out a large chunk of the original premise and added a new subplot that needed to be woven all the way through. Then on top of that, I had to deepen the relationships between all of the characters, add chapters, rearrange existing chapters so the timeline was tighter and……it’s all kind of a blur. I went through three full revisions in that two-month window. They nit-picked EVERYTHING and I loved every minute of it.  Julie, after Pitch Wars, you signed with Mollie Glick of CAA. Please, tell us about “The Call.” We love all the details about the offer, how they contacted you, how you responded, celebrations, emotions . . .

Announcing Pitch Madness 2017…Candyland Edition!

The Pitch Madness submission window will be open for 24 hours on February 24! What is Pitch Madness? It’s a contest held every March, where writers enter for a chance to win requests from the participating agents. Writers submit a 35-word (max) pitch and the first 250 words of their completed manuscript on submission day. Then a team of readers choose the top sixty (60) entries to go onto the agent round.

Also, hosts will coach our team members, helping them polish their entries and first pages. We’ll have an agent introduction post up next week. The submission window will be open from 12:01 AM EST on February 24 until 11:59PM EST. You should have plenty of time to get your submissions in. There is no limit of how many entries will be accepted. Please note: All entries sent before or after the allotted times will be deleted. There will be 60 finalists moving onto the agent round. Pitch Madness will accept Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult completed fiction, novel length (no novellas) completed and polished manuscripts only. This time around we will not accept non-fiction. Only one entry per writer this round. What do you need to enter? A 35-word (max) pitch and the first 250 words of your finished manuscript. If the 250th word falls in the middle of a sentence, go to the end of the sentence. I will post formatting instructions before the submission window opens. There will be a form on the submission post to enter your pitch into. Pitch Madness will be on six blogs and each blog host will have a co-host helping them choose their top 10 entries. We’ll have a small team of first readers ranking the entries for the host round.
