Yesterday I received an email about Deb Werksman and the Casablanca Authors Blog. There is some amazing information on that site that every budding writer should know to get their work seen. She is also hosting a contest for today only – send your pitch – and what a nerve-wracking experience it has been for me.
I was working on my pitch, getting it ready for the SiWC, when I came across this blog so I gathered up my notes and put together a quick pitch. After my hubby took a look at it – and he is NOT into romance novels whatsoever – he gave me the thumbs down and I was back at the drawing board.
So today, I sat down in front of my computer at that particular blog site and hashed out a new one – it took me all morning but I came up with one that I liked. I feel it explains the core of my book which was something I wasn’t able to explain last year, but I also feel it is plot driven instead of just the hook.
But that’s okay, because I want feedback. I want Deb’s help which will steer me in the right direction when I pitch to an agent in Surrey this October.
I’ll let you know what happens.
