Today is the day!
As I have noted here before, I have recently done some significant re-writes on Medousa. I dropped a romance subplot, I made the rivalry between Poseidon and Athena more explicit, and I eliminated a few exposition dumps.
Today, the Nelson Literary Agency is holding a “Pitch by Twitter” from 09:00 to 16:00 MST. http://nelsonagency.com/submission-guidelines/.
One may tweet up to thrice per completed work, and if any of the agents at Nelson like the pitch, they will invite one to submit. I have three tweet-pitches composed and ready to go, and it is my sincere hope that I will soon be taking down my book from its availability on Amazon in return for being honestly published.
- Helot. Lover. Priestess. Monster. Raped by Poseidon, cursed by Athena, her humanity stripped from her. Nevertheless, she persisted; Medousa.
- She was the most loathsome monster of the ancient world. But who was Medousa, really? A story of love and redemption in the face of tragedy.
- “I am the vengeance of Themiscyra, and I am the protector of her children. Nemesis sent me.”
Here’s hoping. In any case, after seeing the success of a female-driven movie like Wonder Woman, I shall continue to push for Medousa. I know I’m not that bad a writer; so perhaps I am not fighting hard enough for my book. Well, that really must change.
Eyes and Fingers crossed.
