The Salsa Connection selected in pitch contest
Last year (2008) Johnny Ray’s The Salsa Connection won the Royal Palm Literary Award for best unpublished thriller. This year, his pitch was accepted as one of 24 submissions that will be pitched as part of the Agent Shop feature on the Musetracks blog.
The idea is interesting. The blog accepts as many as 30 pitches and publishes them. Then agents can read the pitches and ask for more information if they’re interested. For more information see this page that describes the rules and this page that lists the dates for past, future, and current Agent Shop dates.
