This week-end the YA Lit Chat blog hosts an Agent Pitch Slam Week-end.

Starting Monday, two agents, Rachael Dugas from Talcott Notch Literary and Carlie Webber from Jane Rostrosen Literary Agency, and an editor, Leah Hultenschmidt from Sourcebooks Fire will leave comments on the pitches.

The pitches must be 4 or 5 lines long.

Here is my pitch for The King in the Stone:

A full moon, a silver key, and the forbidden passion of two young lovers will bring hope to a defeated kingdom and, through their sorrow, deliver a king who will change its fate.

Sent back in time to 717 A.D., Andrea and Julian are caught in opposite sides in the battle between the Spanish last unconquered settlements and the Arab army. A battle for survival that will challenge their love and demand of them the ultimate sacrifice.

If you have a manuscript ready, don’t forget to post your pitch before Sunday at midnight EST.
