Why do authors LIKE a pitch on #PitMad when they're expressly not supposed to? It's nice to know they like a pitch but it gives the author of said pitch (me) the thought that it's an agent liking my pitch. Ergh.

Anyroad, an agent LIKED my pitch for one of my GATSBY DELANEY - MG book. And an editor at a small press LIKED NOOKS & GRANNIES - a YA.

Eh, there's always authors out there who just don't care enough to bother to learn the rules, and total newbies who mean well but have no idea what's going on. Congrats on your requests!

Thanks, gckatz. A few more LIKES by non-agents and I think I would've developed a nervous tic.

Zooks,
I had the same thing happen and almost had a heart attack. Alas, no love from agents for me, but super-congrats for you!  clap

Thanks, jldelozier. Sorry to hear you got no love from agents. It's so frustrating. Hopefully there will be another pitch very soon where you'll fare much better.

For the same reason everyone and their brother has been tweeting #mswl lately. They don't know the rules. (For those who aren't aware, #mswl is meant for use by agents/editors only, who are posting their Manuscript Wish Lists.)

Thanks Curious Author and lazyprotagonist. 

After researching the small press I decided not to respond to them.They were big on an author having a massive platform and plans for author to market their book. Um...to me, that's what the publisher is for. I get that they're small, but come on. I wrote the book, you market it.
