On Pitch Wars and why I love Stacey Lee

If you haven't heard of Pitch Wars yet, here is the information.

I entered the day it opened, and I've been waiting (and waiting and waiting--why does waiting have to be so hard?) for the results. Well, they went up today, and I'M IN!

Here is the announcement of the teams. (I'm toward the very bottom.)

I'm so excited about this contest because I get to work with a super fantastic mentor, Stacey Lee. I knew as soon as I saw her bio and interests that I wanted to sub to her. She likes historicals, fantasy, pirates, male MCs... in other words, everything that's in my book.

A few days after I submitted, she emailed me asking for my first few chapters, and since then we've been chatting regularly through email. We have a lot of off-the-wall stuff in common, so I'm really excited to be working with her.

But I'm also excited because she gives AMAZING critiques. She already sent me comments on the first several chapters of my MS, and you guys, she is putting me through my paces!

I know that the coming month will be the most challenging I've had in a very long time, but I am really looking forward to it. (And looking forward to the reward of crossing the finish line!) I'm ready to work.

So now I'm off to dive into revisions, aka "Hello darlings, let me murder you." See you on the other side!
