What a really cool idea, I just stumbled across this blog today, right on the day of a pitch workshop! The idea is to pitch a book in 35 words or 140 characters (Twitter, this is your fault) and work on the pitches with each other. The fifty best ones will be paraded in front of some literary agents and editors! Here's what I came up with, at the start of the workshop. Hope I'll get some good feedback and I'll post the newer version later!
LUCAS AND THE BUTTPIRATES, MG Urban Fantasy Adventure
35 word blog pitch:
Ten-year-old Lucas thinks his dad’s full of poop when he warns of bathroom abductions by pirates. Turns out he’s right, and Lucas gets flushed down the toilet to become a sewer-sailing Buttpirate.
Ten-year-old Lucas ignores his plumber dad’s threats and gets flushed down the toilet to become a sewer-sailing pirate. #MGlit #PitchMAS
