Following a competition with BritCrime, Madeleine Milburn has chosen the winning pitches that were tweeted to her during the festival. The winners win a personal critique of their covering letter, first three chapters and synopsis.
Here are the winning three pitches:
3 bed rural cottage needs tlc, great views, large garden with mature shrubs, pond and bodies to be unearthed
A little girl is lost at sea, presumed dead, in an accident. 20 years later a young woman claims to be her. Is she?
A secluded barn homes orphaned boys. One by one they get to go to live in The Big House and innocence is lost. Forever
Congratulations to Joy, Louise and Jeanette!
