The pitches are in.

The votes are cast.

The numbers tallied and checked.

And we have a WINNER of the pitch contest. But you didn't think I would tell you right now, did you?

Of course not. ;-) Keep reading...

Coming up...

Erica Vetsch will be our guest here on the Alley on Monday! Talking about the ever-changing swings in the industry.

The lovely Miss Sherrinda is your hostess on Tuesday.

Enter the amazing world of descriptions on Wednesday with Mary.

Nix that passive in your writing with Casey on Thursday.

It's Critique Partners Part II with Krista on Friday. Catch up on Part I here.


We had a tremendous number of pitches to enter the contest for Rachel Hauck to perform My Book Therapy on the first 1,000 words of your story. But it finally came down to this pitch and the judges (who will remain nameless to protect the innocent) chose...

When a confirmed bachelor inherits his sister's four kids, he knows he can't do it all on his own.
But he can't mail order a bride - can he find one on Craigslist?

If this is your pitch, email your first 1,000 words only to the Writer's Alley email: thewritersalleys(@)gmail(.)com. Once it has been critiqued by Rachel it'll be posted HERE on the Alley--a great learning experience for all of us. ;-)

Thanks all and happy weekend!!

AND, of course, this week looks great! Can't wait :)
