Head Off To Pitch University

Happy Friday All,

Yep, you read that right, it's Friday! It's also almost the end of October--where did the time go?

Today I want to talk about pitching. Writers know that they have to be prepared to talk about our work--whether to friends and family, or to professionals. It can be nerve-wrecking. Especially if you don't know where to begin.

Diane with Pitch University is the answer to  writers' nerves and uncertainity about their pitching and query letters. In fact, I got her to help me with my pitch for the Lone Star Conference and I'm glad I did!

She has a lot of articles/materials and information to prep authors to talk about their work to the agents and editors who will decide whether or not to request pages from them. She also has opportunities to video-pitch to real agents and editors who are guests on the website.

A whole team of "minions" work with Diane and the site is just amazing.

If you're preparing to pitch and/or send a query letter, I urge you to go check out Pitch University and say hi to my pal, Diane, while you're there :-)

Have A Fantastic Friday!
