Has anyone ever heard of them? I got a request to submit from them via a contest and an internet search doesn't produce a lot of results (which should probably tell me something), but maybe someone else has some firsthand experience with them.
I am published already, and while I don't have an agent, I do have an entertainment lawyer friend who vetted my first contract so I've been there, done that before.
And if anyone has direct experience, I'd love to hear it, but so far it looks like I'm passing on them for now.
I got a pitmad request from them, but I don't know if I'm going to send anything to them right now. For the book the requested, I've already been offered and declined a contract from one small publisher I probably should never have submitted to.
If an industry professional favorites/likes your tweet, check their recent tweets for submission preferences.
- If they haven’t tweeted #PitMad submission guidelines, follow their usual query submission guidelines on their website, but put “PitMad Request: TITLE” in the subject line of your email.
- Send the request as soon as you can.
- If the agent has already rejected your book through traditional querying you should still send the requested materials and include this history in the beginning of your email, as well as a note if you have performed significant revisions since the initial query.
