I'm so excited to be a mentor for Pitch Wars 2014!
What an honor to read another writer's manuscript, offer suggestions, and help it shine! I will also critique the book pitch to get it ready for the agent round. For two whole months, I get to mentor another writer.
For me, this is all about giving back.
Giving back to a writing community that has read my umpteen queries, pitches, and not-quite-ready first drafts.
Giving back to Twitter followers and friends who have encouraged me along this writing journey.
Giving back to online contests, where I first learned how to critique, offer constructive feedback, and pitch my stories.
I will be back on August 4th for the Mentor Bio Blog Hop, when I'll announce what category and genres I want to mentor. (Hint: Think realistic, heartwarming MG!)
