Today is #SFFpit on Twitter. You have a chance to pitch your science fiction or fantasy novel to agents in a single tweet.
#SFFpit has already started, since it is 8am-6pm EST, but you still have plenty of time to jump in.
The rules and details about #SFFpit are here.
Make sure your novel is actually finished. If you want to help your friends, you can retweet their tweets but don’t like them, unless you are an agent.
Unlike other pitch days, #SFFpit is only for sci-fi and fantasy. But what’s great about it is that you can make one pitch per hour. Giving you 10 chances to pitch your story.
Have fun and good luck!
The denizens sent from Hell to torment the living don’t have horns, bat wings and they certainly don’t fucking sparkle. They prey on humans in a much more clandestine manner. On a demon spawn’s 1,057th birthday she goes out on the Las Vegas city strip. Ready to hunt for men. Literally dressed to kill.
Thank you Dark Dossier Magazine for publishing my short, spooky story, “1,057th Birthday.”
When a race of galactic alien conquerors can no longer use slave labor, they try out the human concept of unpaid internships. Check out my short sci-fi piece in Cough Syrup magazine. A magazine for short, experimental, trippy fiction.
The new Dune movie (based on Frank Herbert’s 1965 “Dune”) is slated to come out December 18th, 2020.

Denis Villeneuve is the director. He also directed Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival.
The movie will have big name actors such as Jason Momoa and Oscar Isaac.

HBO released a free episode of “Raised by Wolves” on YouTube.
Probably to get you addicted and make you buy HBO.
This is their crack sample. ;-D
What would it be like if a society had “citizen scores” in addition to “credit scores?” The government develops a number to evaluate their judgement of your character as a person. This number governs every aspect of your life.
I decided to write a short cyberpunk story about a fictional society that is run by citizen scores and apps. It got published in The Weird and Whatnot Magazine.

What is #PitMad you may ask?
#PitMad is the original twitter pitch event, where writers tweet a 280-character pitch for their completed, polished, unpublished manuscripts. Agents and editors make requests by liking/favoriting the tweeted pitch.
I’ll include the description from pitchwars.
“Every unagented writer is welcome to pitch. All genres/categories are welcomed.
#PitMad occurs quarterly. Upcoming dates are:
- March 5, 2020 (8AM – 8PM EDT)
- June 4, 2020 (8AM – 8PM EDT)
- September 3, 2020 (8AM – 8PM EST)
- December 3, 2020 (8AM – 8PM EST)
Don’t favorite friends’ tweets. The agents will be requesting by favoriting tweets, and more favorites can make it hard for those with requests to see all of their faves/likes. RT or Quote-RT to show your support. Do NOT use the hashtag when quote RTing – Keep the hashtag clean so agents can navigate it easily.
Be respectful and courteous to each other, and especially to the industry professionals. If you do see abuse, please report it to Twitter or notify one of the hosts of the event.
Thank you for your interest, and happy pitching!”

A while ago I wrote some techno songs. I don’t really care what happens to them. So, if you want to use them for some video, or video game, or creative project you’re making, go for it. You can use them for free. I’d prefer credit, but I don’t really care.
