The agent round for PITCH WARS brought to you by Brenda Drake and hosted by YAMisfits is finally here. The talented panel of agented/published authors, industry interns, and editors have worked for over a month with their teammate to help get their pitches and manuscripts ready for some fabulous agents. To view the teams go here, and for a list of the awesome participating agents go here.
Starting today, January 23, through Thursday, January 24, agents will be reading and making requests on the teams' pitches. The team in each category with the most requests will receive bragging rights and Amazon gift cards.
And that's not all ...
ALTERNATES SHOWCASE! As a special reward for waiting in the wings, we are putting the alternates on a few host blogs and inviting agents to stop by and make requests. ALL AGENTS ARE WELCOMED TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT.
Here are the blogs hosting the alternates' pitches:

TWITTER PITCH PARTY! For those of you who didn't make it into Pitch Wars, there will be a twitter pitch party on the hashtag #PitMad on January 25 from 8AM to 8PM EST. So get your twitter pitches ready and make sure to include the hashtag in your 140 character count. The rules are: be polite, any genre can be pitched, and pitch each time you see an agent on the hashtag (pitch continuously throughout the day). ALL AGENTS ARE WELCOMED TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT.
Please do not comment unless you are an agent! We'll open up to comments for all after the agent round is done!
