Twitpitch Sunday

I'll be one of the editors at the evening session!

How would you like to be published with Loose Id? Do you have a completed erotic romance manuscript you're ready to submit to publishers? Would you like feedback immediately as to whether your manuscript may work for Loose Id? If so, you should join the editors of Loose Id on Sunday, December 11, for our second Twitpitch. Here's how it works.
Log in to Twitter between 11:00 a.m. and 1 p.m. or during our second session from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Both sessions are eastern time, U.S.
Send out your pitch with the hashtag #LIpitch.
Editors will be tracking the trend. If one is interested, she will @you with questions or private message you with submission instructions.
If you don't hear from an editor, feel free to submit via our traditional submission system:

Remember at this time we are only looking for completed, erotic romance manuscripts.
