In 2018, I'm joining Pitch Wars as a mentor

Recently, a friend of mine told me about Pitch Wars--you could say he pitched the idea to me ...


Last one of those I promise.

Anyway, after looking over Michael's email, I realized this was a way for me to give back to the writing community that had so generously supported me over the last nine years. So I applied to be a 2018 Pitch Wars mentor for adult fiction.

Weirdly enough, they accepted me. That's about all I can say about being a mentor right now. There will soon be blog hops and scores of announcements, and I'll keep you in the loop as best I can.

This is Poe and the adult mentor badge.

Meanwhile, watch the header on this page. I'll be posting important dates for those of you who would like to follow along.

You'll know it's a Pitch Wars post when you see the Pitch Wars mascot Poe.

A few links for you:

If you're new to Pitch Wars, here is a good starting place: New? Start here. You can also follow Pitch Wars on Twitter at @PitchWars. Check out the Twitter hashtags for #Pitchwars and #PWPoePrompts as well. 

Once the blog hop begins, you'll see the mentors' wish lists and we'll give you an idea of the genres and types of works different mentors want to see. You might find I'm not the right fit for you or your work. For that reason, I suggest you check out this post on the Pitch Wars website. Mentors are categorized under MG, YA, and New Adult and/or Adult, so you can have time to read their blogs and get to know them.

For those of you who are brand new to me and my blog: if you want to get a feel for my writing style, you can check out my free stories. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and you'll find a Los Nefilim vignette, a piece of flash fiction "Comes the Night," and a short story "La Santisima."

That's about it for now. I'll have another post later this week to bring you up to speed on what's happening with Where Oblivion Lives and the next book in the series, Carved from Stone and Dream.

Watch for me ...
