Pitch to Win!

If you’re a writer who is serious about writing, you know that in order to be successful you have to be able to pitch your book—and no, I don’t mean throw it across the room in exasperation because “it’s just not working!” (Though that will likely happen, too.)

Since I was rejected—actually laughed at—in a pitch appointment once, I’ve let that experience keep me from pitching again. And it even has kept me from working on my writing as much as I should.

Don’t let this happen to you!

Aside from the fact that the person I pitched to was having a bad (and insensitive) day, why did my pitch fail? Simple. Because I didn’t know what I was doing and I didn’t practice, practice, practice. So, today let’s practice–at my post on Novel Rocket!

Enter your pitch there (or here) for a chance to win the book of your choice (details on Novel Rocket).

  1. Hey Michael,
    I tried entering a post on the Novel Rocket site, in order to enter the contest, but it wanted me to sign up for a blog. I’ve already got one, so I didn’t end up submitting. Did I do something wrong? Or is the “contest” only for those on Blogger?

What do you think?
