It’s the first Pitch Day of 2013! Say hello to all the authors!

January 12, 2013
TIME TO STOP PITCHING! THANKS FOR COMING TO SEE US. FEEL FREE TO KEEP TALKING, BECAUSE I WON’T PICK THE WINNERS OF THE BOOKS UNTIL MORNING.
HAVE A GREAT EVENING!

I can’t tell you all how excited I am for this Editor Shop.

Jennifer Miller is my editor at Samhain. I adore her and am so thankful to have her in my corner!

PRIMITIVE NIGHTS released from Samhain on Jan 8th. and to celebrate, Jennifer agreed to be our attending editor. NINE other authors from Samhain agreed to come as well and we’re all giving away prizes!

I’ll start taking pitches around 10:00 am EST. But please don’t send me anything until you see the word ‘GO’ posted in big letters as an update at the top of this page. Once it’s there, send your pitch to candi_agent_shop (at) yahoo.com.

Yes, I know, it’s hard to wait, but while your waiting (and after you pitch), check out the new or soon to be released authors and their works below. Each link will take you to a page with their information, blurbs, excerpts and yummy covers!

Please feel free to comment and chat. We’ll all be here through the day and the more you comment, the more times you’re entered to win!

Here are the links to each authors info:

(PLEASE DON’T POST COMMENTS ON INDIVIDUAL PAGES. COME BACK TO THE MAIN PAGE TO POST COMMENTS OR WE MIGHT MISS THEM!!!!)

Good luck to everyone!


It’s Pitch Day with Rhonda Penders EIC of The Wild Rose Press!

December 15, 2012

UPDATE – GO!

I have to work today, so I’ll be checking in from time to time throughout the day.

Wait until you see the word GO posted BEFORE you start pitching, and send your pitch to Candi_agent_shop@yahoo.com

I’m super excited to welcome Rhonda Penders, Editor-in-Chief at The Wild Rose Press.

She’s our first, brave editor, so be gentle so we don’t scare her away. 🙂

This is a great interview with Rhonda. HINT: She gives some great info about TWRP here.

Remember to click on the Agent/Editor tab at the top of this page and read the rules carefully. I have a funny feeling there will be a lot of pitches coming in and I’d hate to delete your pitch because you didn’t follow the rules!

Good luck!

OH! And I almost forgot… Leave a comment using the words WILD and NIGHTS and you’ll be entered to win the top pitch slot. I’ll also be giving away an ARC of PRIMITIVE NIGHTS to one lucky comment! (Winners chosen randomly.)


It’s almost time to pitch again… by Candi Wall

December 1, 2012

I have to tell you all how excited I am to start hosting editors here on Musetracks for Agent/Editor Shop.

woot

Agent Shop has been a baby of ours here at Musetracks for some time. I’ll give you a little reason why.

When Jenn, John, Marie-Claude and I first met at Charlotte Dillon’s critique group, I can honestly say we were ALL rather green. Maybe not so green that we’d never written anything… We all had novels to share, were ‘sort of” prepared to tackle the publishing world, were semi-certain we had some talent, and one if not all of us had come to realize it wasn’t as easy as simply writing the novel. But we were – newbies.

Together, and with Stacey coming on board, we learned that the road to publishing is a paved road full of potholes big enough to swallow a writer walking with false-bravado blinders. We also found that even if we recognized and worked on our weaknesses, we were very susceptible to falling down, bruising our egos, our hearts, and our muse.

But one of the most important things we learned was how incredibly supportive other writers could be. Not only were we there for one another, hordes of other writers were there as well, offering suggestions, encouragement, quick fixes and heavy hands as was needed.

None of us would have made it to where we are if we’d gone it alone. It simply wouldn’t have happened…

That’s where Musetracks came in. It was our way to give back, to inspire. Our way to support writers at any stage in their career – like we were once and still are supported. Agent Shop is another venue for writers to interact with publishing professionals and has been hugely popular in the almost two years it’s been up and running. We’re hoping that Editor Shop will be as much of a success.

I’m happy to say the awesome Rhonda Penders with The Wild Rose Press will be our first ever guest editor at Editor Shop, and I wish you all the best of luck on pitch day.

December 15th is pitch day, so mark your calendars!
