B is for BIRTHDAY!! MINE!! :)

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah ~ You Say It's Your Birthday!  Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah ~ It's My Birthday, Too!  :)  *tips hat to Farmer Ted*

How cool is it that day "B" of the A-Z coincides with my Birthday?  I don't mean to shamelessly plug myself (or, do I?) but...OK, I'm shamelessly plugging myself.  :)  With that in mind ~  I forgot I needed to post a log line for my current WiP, as part of Shelly Watter's Blogfest "Win a Critique from Agent Suzie Townsend" contest!  Here's my 140 character twitter pitch:

When The Glass Prince claims 17-year-old Clara to the family curse, she must work with Snow White’s immortal son to break it, or die trying.

What do you think?  Any good?  There's still time to sign up for the contest.  Pitches need to be in by tomorrow, April 3rd.

And, as I also promised to be (B)rief today, I'll end it here with a final...


To me, to me!!!  :)  Have a great day of writing/reading/whatnot out there, everyone!

Hi Donea

Interesting pitch but I didn't quite get 'claims...to...'. Do you claim someone TO a curse? Read a bit awkwardly for me. Might also be more of a hook if you said what the curse was.

And Happy B'day!

Happy Birthday!

I love your concept. I'm a bit confused about claiming Clara to the curse, but you've got the goal and stakes and a really intriguing cast of characters!

Good luck in the contest!

Happy B-day and many more!! I love the concept of the story. The only thing that confused me a bit was "claiming" the family curse. But I know nothing about pitches or agents or any of these things so don't take my word for it.

Merry Birthday!!

Kaleen said...

Interesting pitch. I'm not sure what "claim" to a curse means. What is this curse? Good luck to you!

Ruthy said...

What a fun blog! Happy Birthday.
I agree with other comments on "claims". Otherwise, I likey.

Holly Ruggiero said...

This is the 2nd birthday post. The other one is somewhere in the 400s of the blogfest challengers.

I like the pitch but the first part confused me at first. It the word claims I think that through me off.

Margo Berendsen said...

Happy Birthday! I love twists on fairy tales. THis is a great pitch though I am wondering if the glass prince and Snow White's son are the same person or not? "claiming to the curse" is a strange way of saying what I *think* you're saying, but it works. Sometimes unusual is good!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Happy birthday, Donea!!!

Suzi McGowen said...

Happy Birthday! Maybe just for the pitch you can switch "claim" to "bind"?

Otherwise, great pitch!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Happy Birthday! Great pitch!

Caryn said...

Happy birthday! Oh, and I love your Sixteen Candles reference. A few months ago I watched it for the first time in years, and it *still* cracked me up.

Carrie said...
