Since the pitch to a story is a crucial part of drawing in readers (and publishers for that matter), I thought I would post a VERY rough pitch of my book. Life is crazy right now for this writer, so instead of leaving you to wait to read something from me on this blog for awhile, I decided to throw out this pitch. If you have any suggestions to make it better, let me know (I just realized that it is one sentence, so I could probably work on that one!)! For your information, my book is in the genre of young adult fantasy.
Little did Prim, an orphan who did not like any attention directed toward her, realize at the time she entered the contest that she’d be immediately thrust into the upper tier Elite of Medadrom society to not only fight for her right to represent the Kingdom of Medad at the Universus, but fight quite literally for her life as she unwittingly interferes in the pinnacle events of a decades-long plan to corrupt the Kingdom of Medad and stumbles over evidence of an even greater threat to the ten United Kingdoms of Vertus.
In all honesty, would you want to read my book after reading that?
