I am THRILLED to announce NestPitch Team Unbreakable, with five amazing submissions picked by myself and the delightful Jessika Fleck and Katy Upperman. I chose the name "Unbreakable," in part because I had that theme song from The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt stuck in my head...
And now you do too. :) But I also chose the name because authors have to be unbreakable. A crack or two is expected, but an author who makes it through the query and pitch wars and survives is made from stronger stuff than eggshells.
And without further ado, here is #TeamUnbreakable:
Trebled Times of CeCe Santos by Susan O'Connor (YA Contemporary)
Like Stitching Coffee Cups by Jennifer Dugan (NA Romance)
It Happened on Thunder Road by Susan Antony (YA Romance w/ Magical Realism)
Rainbirds by Clarissa NG (Adult Literary/Coming of Age)
The Curse of Jenny Greenteeth by Mandy Silberstein (YA Thriller)
That's all you get for now. In the next few weeks, our team will be working together to refine the pitches and first pages. On May 11th I will be posting each author’s entire pitch and first words.
You can find the first clues to the other pitches here:
