My 2017 Pitch Wars Mentee Pick
Being a Pitch Wars mentor has been so much fun the last couple of months. And I've been so busy I guess I forgot to post all about my choice, the lovely and talented Shelly Steig.
In my wish list I asked for funny middle grade novels. Shelly's Las Vegas caper FAUX REAL had me giggling on the very first page. I'm serious. There is a flying falsie and a chest hair toupee! I clutched that manuscript in my sweaty fingers and prayed that I would get to work on it. And my prayers were answered!
Shelly has been amazing to work with. She takes direction and criticism well. She has a great sense of humor and a positive attitude. She is the real deal, guys. You are gonna wanna remember her name!
You can read more about how me and Shelly got connected in this interview.
And make sure to pop in on the agent round of Pitch Wars to see #teamTROUBLEs entry get all the love!
