10TH BIRTHDAY BLOGPITCH #50: YA Thriller

TITLE: Glimmr
GENRE: YA Psychological Thriller

It’s Black Mirror meets Pretty Little Liars when sixteen-year-old Fin Bailey creates Jane, her perfect virtual best friend, and finds out the hard way that things on the internet live forever. Jane takes on a life of her own, posting pictures that Fin didn’t create—pictures that implicate her in a series of horrible accidents—and Fin has to stop her before she reveals an even darker truth.

  1. Hi! Well I'm certainly intrigued! One suggestion would be at the end "she reveals an even darker truth"- maybe switch the "she" to Jane? That would keep the pronouns super clear.

    Also, I'm curious if the implications of the horrible accidents are also true? Or are those fake set ups, but Fin also does really have a dark secret?

    This a little bit hints at some sort of Gossip Girl, all-seeing internet persona vibe too, and I'm digging it.

  4. Completely hooked! I particularly love the line "finds out the hard way that things on the internet live forever." Very creepy and foreboding! No critiques from me.

  9. Really, really good! The very end of the last line didn't read as well as the rest, but as someone said just changing the "she" to "Jane" might help there. First sentence hooked me.

  16. I'm a little thrown by "and finds out the hard way that things on the internet live forever." Does this happen before Jane takes on a life of her own (and if so, how has she come to the end of forever before this even starts?) Maybe you need to reword to something more exact.

    Aside from that, I'd like to know more about how Jane knows her secrets. Does she have access to her hard drive or her memories or her Facebook messages or something?

    Good luck!

  18. I absolutely love this concept.
    It's like the Bff concept but with traits of single white female.
    Would love to see exactly what happens.
    Good luck!
