I reckon instead of putting people on machines for stress tests they should just line them up for a pitch session. Just before I went for my first pitch, I'm sure my heart was beating faster than if I'd sprinted a mile. :)

Of course the agent and editor I pitched to were lovely ladies and managed to calm me down. It's the suspense before hand that's the killer! :)

Yep, If all my requests are approved, I'm pitching to two agents and two editors.

Hmmm... you only get one. I'm pretty sure. I didn't know you could request more than two. Off to find out lol. :) Thank you. :)
