One-line Pitches — 7 Comments

  1. Wow, I feel honored to be mentioned in your post. I’ll be working on my pitches this week as I am planning on attending the CS Lewis writers conference at the end of the month. It is my first conference. Feel free to talk me out of it. Anyone willing to give me their opinion on my pitch? I just can’t write in a room of people. So, it is my homework this week.

    This was my first YA/MG meeting and I greatly enjoyed it. I actually went last month but was at the wrong place.

    Good to see your blog and your efforts in marketing yourself. Great job! Also glad you have links, as I may need some more copies of the handouts in my efforts to do many online pitches this week. Ah yes, and thanks for the encouragement for nano write http://www.nanowrimo.org/ I have signed up on the site. Guess that means I am committed or should be committed. Any other fools out there? I’m a Nano write virgin so I’ll see how this goes.

    Good to meet you Vonna.

  2. Thanks for keeping those of us who couldn’t make what sounds like a GREAT event informed. As it turns out, I was pitching on Saturday at the Lone Star Conference–three agents! I look forward to following your links!

  3. Ah, yes! That’s where everyone was. RWA. Since I write MG, they are a little off my radar, but I know it’s a great organization for writers, regardless of genre.

    Hope to see you soon Kathy, Tuesday!

  4. Vonna,
    Sounds like a great meeting and I would have loved to have been there to hear the roomful of pitches. Want to make the next one! I was, of course, in drizzly San Diego, absorbing kid movies and hero journeys. It’s tough watching owls talk like humans. Something to do with the beak and those two holes. Marty

  5. Thanks, Heather, and thanks for the link

    But, Marty, didn’t those owls look fantastic? The scene in the rain was so cool!!
