Time to reveal the Bunny Masks!
Each of the agents has taken on a Secret Agent Bunny Mask and your job is to identify who is wearing which Mask. (you’ll find the Agent List here: https://nestpitch.wordpress.com/2014/03/15/agent-reveal/ )
There’s an Amazon Voucher in it for the first correct answer. For more info, go to: https://nestpitch.wordpress.com/2014/02/07/operation-unmask-the-agent/
For those who haven’t been watching/listening carefully, this is how #nestpitch will work. On April 1st, you will send us your pitch + 300. Go to here: https://nestpitch.wordpress.com/2014/01/19/nestpitch-update-rules-conditions-whats-a-bilby-anyway/ for all the rules and conditions, and please follow the rules.
Then our Awesome Super-Cala-Fragile-Istic team of Slush Bilbies will pick the top 100-odd. For more information on the Slush Bilibies, go to here: https://nestpitch.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/slush-bilbies-revealed/
From there our Scrum-didle-iumptious Team of Bloggers will each pick their favourite pitches to post on their blogs. The selected pitches will be notified via email also. For Blogger info go here: https://nestpitch.wordpress.com/2014/01/24/nest-bloggers-revealed-oh-magic-bunyips-explained/
We will have a full line-only list of all those selected on this blog
plus a link to the Bloggers page.
Once the pitches are posted, the Secret Agent Bunnies will hop from nest to nest and leave a chocolate treat. Something like this (for example)
Golfer Bunny has left you 1 Box of Caramel Eggs – for all the *TREATS* got to here:
You’ll need to know what Easter Treat equals what request so I suggest you save a copy of the Easter Treats request items to your desktop; or better still, print a copy off.
At the end of the Easter Egg Treats day… you will be sent a second email with a list of agents who made a request. If any agents have given specific email addresses, this will be added to your email. If not, please email to the Agency Website but remember to follow the guidelines with regard to what to write in the Subject Line.
And; while all this is happening, we will announce the winners of:
(i) The winner (s) of the Unmask the Agent (open to all not just those participating in #nestpitch)
(ii) The winner (s) of the most requests
(iii) The winner (s) of the most FULLS requested
Remember all of the above winners will receive an AMAZON Gift Card
& not forgetting, Rhiann Wynn-Nolet and I are running a 35-word pitch clinic here starting this weekend.

Now to the Bunny Masks, and in no particular order Da-Daaaah!!!
As well as Adult fiction, this Cocktail Bunny wants YA that’s creative and fresh (open to all genres) and has strong characters that are flawed yet unique. Cocktail Bunnies like their Literary/Commercial fiction with a multi-cultural bend, and will curl up with their big curly-furred dog to read smart, intelligent Mysteries and Thrillers and historical fiction. Cocktail Bunnies have a low threshold for overdone.
Bookworm Bunny is looking for Psychological Suspense with a twist (think THE OTHERS), dark, creepy, hair-raising YA & NA, clever mysteries with a keen sense of place, humorous MG series, and contemporary Romances and Women’s Fiction of all descriptions.
(3) GIANT BUNNY
This Cocktail Bunny really likes animals, Supernatural (the TV show), and Loki from the Avengers. Giant Bunny is extremely chatty on-line and very open about their style of agenting. Giant Bunny also recently got a serious hair cut; that’s a big clue! When not adopting new fury friends, Giant Bunny likes to read the gamut – Picture Books, MG, YA, Adult, Romance even PB’s for adults – hehehe
This Laptop Bunny wants innovative MG and YA projects with a pull towards more historical settings although a modern, emotional story would be welcome. Also loves contemporary Romance and Women’s Fiction and anything that really manages to surprise me.
Mad Scientist Bunnies would naturally want non-fiction, but can you believe it, this Mad Scientist is also looking for YA, MG, Adult Mysteries/Thrillers and literary fiction too – Even a Mad Scientist’s enjoy a good bit of fiction – now, can you guess who this Mad Scientist is?
Shopper Bunny is *shopping* (sorry couldn’t help myself) for commercial women’s fiction, historical fiction, mysteries, psychological thrillers, suspense, humour. This Bunny loves sassy Southern and/or British heroines.
Soccer Bunnies Like romance? Who Knew? Well, this Soccer Bunny does like Romance, especially contemporary and historical (has a soft spot for Regency), YA sci-fi/fantasy, contemporary, historical–particularly partial to YA with, you guessed it, romance!
As the name suggests, this Juggler Bunny has a lot going on, balls in the air anyone? But they still have time for great writing and new Clients, as long as they are MG and YA; open to any genre within those age groups, but prefers speculative fiction.
No idea who Juggler Bunny is? Here’s a clue, could you spell this Agent’s name without looking?
Haaa-Yah! Ninja Bunny wish list: My main big wishes are brilliant storytelling and inspiring or heart-breaking characters; I want to feel like I’m living, not reading, the story. Also anything that brings me to tears either through love, fear or sadness would be wonderful – Sounds like tis Ninja likes a good cry after beating up the bad-guys!
This Artist Bunny is super hungry for MG/ YA/ Adult Romance, Fantasy and wants to curl up on the sofa with a great Mystery. And this Agent Bunny knows the business from both sides of the process;…and that’s a big clue 🙂
Oh, and don’t panic if you don’t see your genre or category, these are TOP agents who work for AWESOME agencies, eight agencies to be accurate, trust me, their colleges are watching, and waiting, and intending to leave treats under these Bunny Masks.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!
- Purple Bunyip
- Yellow Bunyip
- Green Bunyip
- Blue Bunyip
This means, if a Bunyip sees a *NEST* they simply MUST HAVE, they’ll whisper a special code word to me and I’ll let them leave their own unique treat.
You know what to do right?

Oh…and a few final thoughts,
(i) if you come across an agent or a blogger or a bilby on Twitter or wherever, thank them for being part of this. They all give of their free time.
(ii) Play nice; art is subjective and therefore not everyone agrees all the time. Remember that when talking to or about anyone involved.
