Wow – you guys got busy this #PeerPitch!

giphy-1

As well as our busiest Twitter week, where you were all rock stars with sharing pitches and giving plentiful feedback to others!

Altruism, both true and reciprocal, was in abundance and I bow to all of you. This is what being a writer is about and you all nailed that!

So, down to the contest. We got 177 entries. So many amazing pitches. Lots of good ones, too. Some needed a little more work but still impressed us with some aspects.

But we made the difficult choice of narrowing down the amazing ones to just 34…and trust me there well over 50 that each of us voted for.

The Scribblers

So if you made the Long List it’s quite an achievement, as you needed not 1 or 2 votes, but 3 of us to vote for your pitch! So be rightly proud.

If you didn’t make it onto the LL, do not fret – many of the very good ones, with 1 or 2 votes did not make it. It doesn’t reflect on the quality of the pitch in most cases, it was simply a preference thing in so many instances.

It’s all subjective…blah, blah, blah! 😂

Okay, okay, here are all the titles and lovely authors that made the long list!

We’ll announce the short list on Friday at noon.
