Phreak Show is having it’s coming out party. Maybe.
Hot off the presses, it’s up for the grabby hands of the self-identified Slush Zombies over at #PitchMadness. If you’re oblivious, check it out here: http://brenleedrake.blogspot.com/
The announcements for the pitches which level-up to Round 2 won’t be made until 3/26. In the meantime, I’ll query an EXTREMELY small selection of god-tier agents. I’m doing a short-window-exclusive-of-sorts during this time. Then, should the need arise, I will step down to the next rung of the Echeladder. [If you get the god-tier & Echeladder references, I totally heart your face.] Also, there is this magical nexus where PM & the GT converge…

I love the pitch and excerpt. Good luck!
I’m curious – who is in your God Tier of agents?
Thx for the love, Jen.
Oh now, I can’t reveal that little secret. A man has to keep a bit of mystery about him…
Haha. Okay, understood. 🙂
Good pitch! I get the spelling of Phreak, which is important. Keep in mind, I’m a querier just like you, so take this with a grain or more of salt. I love the voice and find the first 250 intriguing. I would keep reading. Best wishes.
Thx, Amanda. As you know, honing a kajillion words into 35 or less is a monstrous task. I’m simply glad the submission is over so I can quit obsessing over the perfect micro-pitch. 😉
Good luck in PitMad.
I REALLY liked this first 250! The tone of the piece slaps you in the face and doesn’t really let up at all.
Excellent job. And I think I’ve been to this Podunk. Heck, I may LIVE in a similar Podunk.
Best of luck and thanks for posting!
I REALLY like that you capitalized it, Brooks. Great idea for the #PitMadScoop tag. Kudos.
Also, I’ve lived in way too many of those podunks myself…Years of “research”.
Wow. Your first 250 are fabulous. I think the second line of your pitch could do a better job of establishing the stakes (what terrible thing will happen if Tera fails to free the phreaks, beyond “Tera may decide she’s not a good person”?), but overall, I am intrigued!
Thanks. I’ll take positive comments about the actual writing (vs. a 35-word pitch!) any day. 😉
Fantastic visual! I could see it all and loved where it was going… I want more!
Good luck 😉
Perfect. Remind me again, when are you opening your own agency? 😉
