So, this is a super cool idea! Courtney Pearson has set up this fantastic bloghop to get us to look back at shelved manuscripts. Since I have several, it's kind of hard to choose, but I think I have chosen. For the first day of the hop, we're supposed to post our pitch. So here's my pitch for my shelved novel (and ABNA semifinalist in 2010) Assignment 9.
Serially abandoned as a child, Casey struggles with relationships until she meets the equally damaged Mark in her creative writing class. An autobiography assignment leads her to acknowledge the roots of her fears and gives her the strength to let him into her life.
And thank you to everyone who made suggestions about what I should post on in the future. I will cover all those topics, and more, very soon!
Sounds like a real struggle for your MC!! I want to know how Casey fares! :DReplyDelete
This definitely sounds like something I'd read. I like damaged people... in fiction.ReplyDelete
This sounds great. The only thing that made me pause was the word "serially" but I know what you mean and don't know how to reword that concept.ReplyDelete
This does sound great. Something I'd read too. =)ReplyDelete
I love the emotional damaged characters. Definitely appeals to me. I'd read it!ReplyDelete
This sounds very similar to another MS I have that needs some dusting off. Haha. Nice job.ReplyDelete
Love this. Can't wait to see the sample. :)ReplyDelete
A damaged boy and an equally damaged girl is my type of book. Throw in the autobiography assignment and I am sold. Great concept, can't wait to read your excerpt.ReplyDelete
Oh, wow, I would so read this! Wonderful pitch!ReplyDelete
OMG, I want to read this!! I think I can totally relate. I hope that you finish the MS!ReplyDelete
