New faces for Pitchprep! by Leslie Dow

Hello everyone!

Welcome to 2021, the year when we want to make sure YOU sell your book!

I wanted to take a quick minute to announce a really exciting new change in our Pitchfest PitchPrep. Pitchprep is an opportunity we started last year to help you get your pitches ready for Pitchfest. In this short class, you post your pitch and recieve feedback and advice from one of our experienced instructors and publishing pros.

The wonderful Becky Martinez was our first Pitchprep instructor last year.  This event was so popular that in October, we added Margaret Riley, the publisher and acquiring editor for Changeling Press. This year we are adding a couple more instructors. These are from Entangled Publishing: Editorial Director Stacy Cantor Abrams and Editor Alethea Spiridon!

As thrilled as we have been to offer this event at no additional charge for our Premium Members, we have had some issues. As bizarre as it sounds, we have had some members sign up…and then…no-show!!! I know! Crazy pants, right?

We want everyone who will participate fully the opportunity to do so, so we are charging a small $10 fee to Premium Members. We want everyone who signs up to have a little “skin in the game” and make this a useful and interactive event for everyone.

Please do check out these limited-registration events:

And don’t forget to register for 2021 Sweetheart Pitchfest from February 10th-12th
