I'm so excited to announce that our #PitchWars mentee Kamerhe Lane has signed with Adriann Ranta, of Foundry Literary!
My Pitch Wars partner Kate Karyus Quinn and I received almost 200 submissions when this year's contest began. We whittled them down over a period of days, found two manuscripts we wanted to work with, and dove in for the long haul of reading, re-writes, edits and emails.
I don't regret the time I've given to PitchWars. It's been lovely to relive the first-time experiences of publishing through someone else - refreshing the PitchWars entry page, checking the clock to see if the agent phone call has happened yet, glancing at the phone at stop lights to see if there's an email update.
Kamerhe is an amazing author, and her ms, THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOAN, is stellar!
I'm so thrilled to play a part in getting this out there, and especially pleased that she is now my agency sister.
