Pitch your Book Like a Pro in May!

Need help with your book pitch? Planning to go to Nationals? Come out and enjoy a month long pitch class where class members will get top notch coaching on how to get Pitch Perfect! Normally this is a 2 week class and we only have time to work on 1 pitch per student BUT in this class, you'll get to polish up to 2 separate pitches!

At the end of class, I'll even have a special guest editor appear to read our pitches and make comments. Sometimes they will even make requests for more for those class members brave enough to take the challenge! In my December class, we had 5 requests out of 9 participants and 2 of those requests were subsequently offered contracts!

Don't miss out on the this invaluable "pre-game" warm-up session that will have you pitching like a pro in no time!
