Why? Because you want to pitch your stuff. And you won’t be able to sign up at the convention. You have to do so now.
The Bram Stoker Awards® Weekend and World Horror Convention are combined this year in New Orleans. Pitches to several publishers and one agent will be held on Saturday, June 15. The editors and agent are:
Alec Shane – Agent, Writers House
Blood Bound Books – Geoff Hyatt
Cycatrix Press – Jason V Brock
Dark Regions Press – RJ Cavender
Hydra, Random House – Sarah Peed
JournalStone – Chris C. Payne
Nightscape Press – Mark Scioneaux
Samhain Publishing – Don D’Auria
Tor – Liz Gorinski
To secure your slot, email RJ Cavender at firstname.lastname@example.org with your top three pitch choices. In the subject of your email, please write Pitch Sessions – (Author’s Last Name).
All authors will be signed up for two pitch sessions, available on a first come, first serve basis.
Not sure what each publisher and agent are looking for? There’s a website where they straight up tell you. Read it. See if you have anything that fits. Then sign up, and don’t be nervous.
There will be a dark-haired Shock Totem girl in stilettos who will be helping out. Taking you to your pitch session, letting you know when your time is almost up. Straightening your collar and letting you know if there’s lipstick on your teeth. Join me! It will be fun!
But sign up ASAP. Slots are limited and they started filling up immediately.
When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!
Hi Chandra! I can certainly try. I think it looks like you might need to fix it from your end, but I’ll certainly keep looking! I’m so sorry!
Looks like someone got a little “spotlight” action in the newspaper this week.
Hi! I could have sworn I’ve visited this blog before but after going through a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m certainly pleased I found it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!
Hi! I’ve been reading your website for a while now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Kingwood Tx! Just wanted to mention keep up the good job!
