Today, I’m announcing the winner of the Submerged book giveaway on my video blog.
I’m also throwing myself out there and giving you the pitch I might have given the editors at ACFW, had I been able to attend.
I based my pitch setup on Rachelle Gardner’s excellent pitch post here: http://www.booksandsuch.biz/blog/secrets-of-a-great-pitch/. I’m sure I botched it up somewhat (totally forgot to list my writing “street cred”), but I wanted to give you the general idea of how a pitch CAN look. Also, I wanted to encourage you that your pitch will be better-rehearsed and, doubtless, better presented than mine! (A little hint: you might need a hair barette if your bangs fall incessantly in your eyes, like mine did on this video (so sorry!).
So please click the PLAY button (I know, it’s usually a black screen at first! And you might have to click it 2x to get it to load.) and find out a little more about my book. IF you feel so led, post your own pitch on your blog and let me know the link! And fill me in–do you write it all out first? Just hit the high points? Are you focusing on character or plot? And, most importantly, what will you wear?
Winner, I will be emailing you tomorrow, in case you don’t watch this video!
