I do not see the name of the editor I sent my pitches to-Andrea Somberg. Did she request from anyone? Thanks.
    This is the list of pitches from the editors. Check out Andrea's on the Agent pitchfest list.
    https://savvyauthors.com/2019-agent-sweetheart-pitch-requests/
Do Savvy Authors receive a summary of results from editors/agents/publishers as to success stories from Pitchfest rounds? For example, if there were MS requests in the Feb rounds, how many of them have evolved as rejections, R&R's, contracts etc? Probably too early to collate, as it's only been 2 months ... But ... would love to hear success stories and who's had nibbles and progress, when the data is available.
    We don't usually get a summary from them. We do ask. :) But everyone is just super busy.
    We also ask anyone who has sold to let us know but again, everyone is super busy.
    One of our best measures of this is the feedback from the agents and editors. Most tell us the quality of submissions from SavvyAuthors Pitchfests is quite good, so they usually come back and take more pitches.
    thanks for asking!
