If you've ever participated in a twitter pitch contest, you know how much fun (and stress, and work) they can be. Pitching your novel under 140 characters is HARD!

     My Key Tips for Twitter Pitching?

            { see also here }
  • Variety - use lots of different pitches!
      (check rules though, some are
       limited to just one, or just three, etc)

  • Feedback - bounce ideas off other writers!

  • Tweetdeck - use Tweetdeck to schedule your pitches for the day-of (check rules for frequency. Might be 1-3 per day or 1-2 per hour)

  • Socialize - Meet other writers, cheer each other on, & have fun!
I've participated in quite a few twitter pitch parties over the years, and have written about them a lot on this blog. So, with #Pitmad coming up on September 10th, I thought I'd pull together a round-up of my twitter-pitch related posts!
