Drumroll, please...

It's time!!!!

Last night I had the distinct honor of inducting five extremely worthy authors into NestPitch 2015, and the grass-lined madness that is Team Basket Case. After weeks of submissions, spreadsheets, and slapping hands, my teammates Heather, Kristy, and I have a dynamic group of authors to introduce to you! We will be working with them for the next few weeks to get those submissions razor sharp, so there's no peeking on pages just yet, but I can tease you a little bit to get the ball rolling.

So here, in no particular order, is our team!

 
MIKEY GOES TO MAINE
MG/Humor
Christopher Equinox

LITTLE BLACK BOX
YA/Contemporary
Cindy R. Wilson

THE KOSHERS
YA/Contemporary
Amy Smead

SUN AND BONE
YA/Psychological Thriller
Heather Davis

POOR BOY ROAD
Adult/Mystery/Thriller
James L. Weaver

I think it's really important to note just how many outstanding entries passed through our hands, and how difficult it was to narrow our selections down to just five. My slushies (ask them, they'll tell you!) worked tirelessly with me to discuss all of the submissions, and, guys, this was hard. NestPitch has an absolutely outstanding pool of talent this year, and everyone who entered should be extremely proud of themselves.


On May 11th I will be posting each author’s entire Pitch, so you can appreciate them properly!


You can find more clues to the other pitches here:









You can also go to the Nestpitch Blog where you'll find a link to all the blogs, as well as a complete Title, Category/Genre & Author list.

Be sure to check in before May 11th because that clever Nik is running Unmask the Agent again this year, and I promise to update you on the details!
 
(There’s a $20Amazon Voucher up for grabs and you don’t need have submitted to Nestpitch, all you need is a bit of a detective spirit and to know your (our) agents!)

For now Team Basket Case is going to retreat to our cave of solitude and get cracking on edits, but be sure to visit the other mentor blogs to check out the other teams (even though, ya know, our team's the best ;)
