Cassiel Knight, Publisher at Champagne Books 

Thank you for sharing your work with us! Wow! There were so many wonderful pitches to choose from which makes it really hard for us to select what fits our needs. This always speaks to the talent and skill of the authors who make up Savvy Authors. While we couldn’t ask to see every work, please know that it isn’t a reflection of the skill of the author or the work itself but more of what CBG publishes and what we know attracts our reader base.

Please review and send your material via our online submission form: https://querymanager.com/query/Champagne/SavvyAuthorsPitc. We look forward to receiving and reviewing your work!
