I have a cold.
My brain is fogged and I am stumbling around with an almost empty box of tissues in one hand and a crumpled soggy tissue in the other.
Yesterday was PitMad and I ventured into Twitter hell to pitch my Helen/Nefertiti novel and garnered one like. One like. I guess ancient historical fiction isn’t as coveted as YA magical dragons or LGBT story lines. Either that or my pitch sucked.
“A Priestess’ hoax sends Helen to Egypt to become a great queen and watch the Trojan War from afar.”
“Helen of Sparta, tricked into going to Egypt, must survive power hungry Royal family & rule them all.”
“For Paris’ love Helen risks it all. What she gets is Egypt’s King, throne & a new identity.”
Okay, those are the three pitches I used. Do they stink?
