What I'm Up To

This week I'm in New York for the NYC Pitch and Shop writer's conference. For those who haven't read my prior posts on it, it's a different kind of conference where you get to pitch to editors from the big publishing houses instead of to agents. The only workshops and classes are those which focus on improving your pitch. This conference isn't about improving your work, but selling it. By now I've already pitched to my first editor and am gearing up for tomorrow when I'll be pitching to two more. When I get back I'll tell you all about it but for now you can catch tidbits when I manage to squeeze time in on Twitter. Wish me good luck!

  3. Good luck! But I'm sure you won't need it. I have a feeling you be awesome, and that a book deal will be in your future.

  4. Thanks everone, it has definitely been interesting so far. I've met some fantastic people and I'm learning a lot about how both editors and New Yorkers think and work. When I get back I'll tell you all about it!
