The Best BAD Query Contest #bestbadquery #bestbadpitch

There are so many contests out there that celebrate the good, but what about the bad and just uuuuuuuugly? Well, that's us! After the stress of #pitchslam, #pitchmad, and #nestpitch, the #bestbadquery contest is all about having fun and celebrating terrible-ness.

Here is how to play:

1) Sign up on the linky below
2) On 6/1/15, Post your TERRIBLE query and 35 word pitch on your blog (or however many words you feel need to follow guidelines here). If you wish, also tweet your pitch with the #bestbadpitch tag.
3) Read the other entries and come back here to vote for the worst!

The winner will get a $25 Amazon gift card and the honor of sucking it up the most in 2015! 

This contest is all about FUN! It's not about being mean to anyone, including yourself! So that means no real queries or pitches and no basing your query or pitch on a real book or author. You must write a query and pitch from scratch using all your backwards creative juices to make it a real stinker.
