Hi Amanda,

If you’re still looking for a CP, I’d love to do a trial run and swap chapters to see if we’re a good fit. Your pitch sounds intriguing, and I love YA fantasy. I’m also looking for a CP to give some in depth feedback on my current manuscript. It’s a YA science fiction novel of about 75,000 words. I’m working on revisions right now. Here’s the working pitch:

Breaking into a high security space station and getting out with anything but cuffs on your wrists is impossible for most 26th century thieves, but Jez Starwisp isn’t your average thief. Formerly Jezebel of a Luddite colony where the most advanced tech was a butter churn, she knows her way around lock picks and other archaic tools top of the line security isn’t designed to handle. With her annoying android partner, Jez aims to become the best thief in the Stymphalian solar system.

Until, during a routine heist, a high profile delegate dies, and his murder is pinned on Jez. Now half the solar system is after her (not quite the infamy she wanted), and Jez is staring at the very real possibility of being sentenced to life on the inescapable prison planet. With the help of a bitter adversary, unscrupulous space pirates, and some old-fashioned skill, Jez has to clear her name, stop a murderer, and, oh, save a planet.

The Stymphalian system asked for a hero. They got a thief.

Let me know if you want to give it a try.
