Hello everyone,

I'm new to this forum, so be gentle. :)

I've written my first book - it's a gritty MG. More of a teen book really - I'd say between MG and YA, but hey ho. It's 88K words long, and I've used hashtags #DF, #FA #TT #MH

The title is LORD RHYS AND THE DEVIL DOG. There's plenty of action, murders, kidnap, secrets, clues, threat, strange characters, demons, Medieval warriors, Aztecs, local police, drugs gangs, and more...

I'm a new writer - only started seriously about 18 months ago and work full-time in my seaside shop.

I'd love to get any tips you may have, insights I may be unaware of, etc.

I'm probably going to jump into the pitch event this Wednesday [26th?]. So again, any tips would be gratefully received.

Thanks / Diolch.

I pitched last year. Living in Hawaii and with the time zone in Eastern US time, I have to be aware of the time difference. Make sure your submissions are within the eastern US zone. Wouldn't want to miss [like I've missed many a webinar] because I thought I still had time.

Hi Wendy! The pitches start at 9AM est, but they are open for three days. So even if you miss the first day, you can pitch later in the week.
Happy pitching!
