Sept 2014 #Pitmad Requested Pitches

Last Tuesday was another fabulous #PitMad twitter pitch event, hosted by the even more fabulous Brenda Drake. I've been so busy lately I didn't have time to follow the #pitmad parties that happened earlier this year, but was able to jump into the frenzy with this one!

As always, I had a blast! So fun to see what everyone was pitching, and all of the authors out there re-tweeting and otherwise encouraging one another. I love the writing community!!

In January 2013 and March 2013 I did a round-up of requested pitches from the #pitmad events. I thought it'd be fun to do it again!

So what pitches got agent requests?
Scroll down to read them all!**

September 2014 #PitMad 
Requested Pitches
  • Young Adult      (195 novels requested) 
  • New Adult         (50 novels requested)
  • Adult                  (145 novels requested)
  • Middle Grade   (70 novels requested)
  • Picture Books   (27 books requested)
  • Non-Fiction
    & Memoir          (7 books requested)
  • Total = 494 manuscripts got requests!!
**Note: Apologies in advance for the formatting and any omissions. I tried my best to gather the majority of pitches that received agent favorites here, but I'm sure I likely missed some! And due to time constraints, I didn't attempt to compile faves from all the editors & small presses, so in reality, the number of requested pitches is much higher!

Congrats everyone!!!

Again, congrats to all those who got requests! And please don't hesitate to let me know if you catch any errors on this page!


  1. Thank you so much for compiling this list! It was very helpful to read the pitches from the last #PitMad party when preparing pitches for this one. And then 2 of my pitches received 3 favorites, YEAH! It's so cool to see my name on the above list. Thanks again :)

  2. Thanks, Carissa. It's great to be able to look over the list and review all the attention-grabbing pitches. Mine was in (a lot of) good company! :)

  3. Hi, Carissa. I wasn't on your list. My YA was favorite by Laura Zats. This was my pitch: Murder, espionage and being held hostage were not part of Dru’s London itinerary. Neither was being kissed by Darcy. #PitMad #YA #Thriller

    Thanks for posting all the pitches!
