A Request For Help For #PitMad

Standard

Please!

Hello everyone! This may sound like an odd request, but tomorrow I am participating in #PitMad on Twitter, a day long event in which authors tweet a pitch for a book to agents.

If any of you have Twitter, please consider retweeting my pinned tweet, which I will put up tomorrow morning.

My Twitter handle is @French_C1955

This is also important–do not like the pitch–that is for agents to let writers know they are interested in your work.

The tweet will be for my horror novel The Curse Of The Demon Mine.  I will have the tweet up at 8 A. M. EST.

It will look something like this:

It x Stranger Things

#PitMad #H #A In 1957 South Dakota, 13-year-olds, Dancer, Micah, and James band together to fight an ancient creature that threatens their beloved teacher. To save him and stay alive, they must face bullies and supernatural threats, all controlled by the creature. 

Again, thank you to all!

“Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream things that never were and ask why not?” George Bernard Shaw

I have used this quotation previously on my blog, but I value its meaning so highly that I will begin with this one.  Shaw said it first, and then Bobby Kennedy used it in his 1968 run for the Presidency of the United States of America.

This quotation shows idealism and the understanding that the world need not be as it is and that not only is it possible to imagine other ways, often better approaches to problems, but also that such idealism represents the morally correct approach to life.  As a society, we need to imagine a better future and then try to find ways to implement a more positive society.  We need optimism, courage, hope, and strength to face the challenges of our world.
