Dang. I'm here checking out the competition while I get up the nerve to record my own vlog pitch. Aaannnd now I'm feeling inadequate.

Can you tell me what you used to edit your vlog? So cool!

I wish I had something constructive to say about how you can improve, but I'm a complete novice at this, and you seemed very confident and natural. Sounds like an awesome book!

Hi Elizabeth,

I love the opening hook and monologue from "Alexandra", it was a really interesting way to pull you into the story and help you identify with her right from the beginning. I'm a big fan of mythology retellings, and your take on Cupid & Psyche, or should I say Coop & Psyche, sounds very cool. I also thought your personality really came through, which is great :) Good luck!

I really enjoyed this pitch. You got a lot of information out in such a short span of time, but it was a single line which caught my attention.

It's perfect and modernizes the myth so well. I was all ears after that. Great job!
