#PitchFURY – NOW CLOSED

I see a lot of #tenqueries on twitter where agents tweet the queries as they reject them. Now I understand that these might be useful to writers, but here at The Bent Agency we tend to focus more on what works rather than what doesn’t.
I am closed to submissions, but have recently requested a few manuscripts and I want to tell you a little about how they came my way and then do five tweet-sized accounts about why I requested them.
1. I met an author at a conference in Dallas. She was fabulous and made me laugh. We discussed what was working in the market and moved onto chatting about the things we women loved to talk about, watch on TV, etc. The list included Bridget Jones, 50 Shades, Magic Mike, funny books, Contemporary Romance, etc.  The author invited me to join the gals at a strip club. I had plans, but we joked about Magic Mike and her writing a manuscript like that, but for women. The next day I saw her walking the street, lol – okay, she was walking between hotels. I had my driver stop and I opened my car door and offered her a ride. A year later she emailed me with a query (that rocked) and 5 pages of the manuscript just like we discussed.
My (lengthy) tweet would be:
Query 1 yr after meeting author. Exactly what I asked for. High concept. Funny. Sexy. Magic Mike meets Sex & the City. Request! #5queries
2. A colleague sent me a pitch that came her way.  She loved the writing and the voice, but it was not the right fit for her. I loved the query and the pages.  Literary MG based on author’s life.
My tweet would be:
Referral. Literary middle grade that made me want to cry while reading the first 5 pages. Beautifully written.  Request FULL! #5queries
3. Self-published author that I tweeted/DM’d last year contacted me. I love everything about her series and I am a true fan. I did not offer rep when I had contacted her last year, but she feels like she might need some help moving forward and so she thought of me. Her covers are beautiful. Her titles and plots are high concept. Her sales are good. She is smart and savvy. I think there is foreign and film potential here. I have worked successfully with authors like her before and we are a full service agency, so we can help her explore those subrights. I have read many of her books and would love to see some new unpublished work.
My tweet would be:
Self-pub author restarts conversation we had last year. Gorgeous covers. High concept. Great writing. I am a HUGE fan #OFFERofREP#5queries
4. Nicole Resciniti and I run an annual American Writers Idol competition every year at the Romantic Times Convention (RT). Many of the submissions were so good that we requested a few of fulls even before the event started. We fell in love with four of them and are working on co-repping some of them.  We also represent one of last year’s winners.
My tweet would be:
Amazed at the wonderful, talented authors who submit their work to our RT Writers Idol Comp. Blown away. Requested many fulls. #5queries
5. Because I am closed to submissions, I try to go where the writers are and enjoy participating in online competitions, tweet festivals, roundups, blogs and general pitch madness on the interweb. This year I requested more than 25 full manuscripts from competitions alone. I think that the “tweet” pitch forces the writer to really hone in on the premise of the story and can bring out a high concept that might have been hidden in a regular query. These are my favorite pitches and are much like loglines used to pitch film concepts.
So today my tweet is…
I love 140 character pitches. Want to leave your high concept pitch in the comments section of my latest blog post? 24 hours only #pitchFURY
For this event I will request only the ones that resonate with me and it will probably be based on the following…
Is it high-concept? Eloquent? Original?
Do I love the idea/premise?
Will it make me want to call 5 friends and tell them all about it?
Does it make me curious to read more?
If you want to see what I am looking for, visit my page on the web: http://thebentagency.com/agent_louise_fury.php
Ready? Set? Tweet! 
I can’t wait to read and consider your pitches.

About Louise Fury

Louise Fury represents adult and young adult fiction, including suspense/thrillers, romance, and select nonfiction, as well as novels with a graphic element or illustrations. A native South African, I now live in New York City and travel to Cape Town every year, where I spend time educating South African writers, meeting with international publishers and distributing books. Before agenting, I worked in marketing and advertising for both the consumer markets and publishing. Prior to joining The Bent Agency, I worked as a literary agent at the L. Perkins Agency. I represent numerous New York Times and USA Today best-selling authors and encourage my authors to have one foot in traditional print publishing and the other in the digital arena. I am a huge advocate of utilizing secondary rights—I have sold film/TV, audio and foreign rights for my clients. I believe in staying ahead of the pack by embracing change, not just adapting to it. I'm looking for writers with a unique voice and an unforgettable story. In young adult, I look for manuscripts that are written with an unforgettable voice—this can be deep, dark and gritty or literary, lyrical and emotional. My wish list includes novels with a unique structure or format and books with multiplatform possibilities. I’m also looking for smart romantic comedy. For nonfiction I’m particularly interested in pop culture, cookbooks, true crime, humor, pop science and sports.
