Turning Butterflies into Eagles: Soaring Through Your Pitch

It's nerve racking. Frightening. Downright terrorizing. The pitch. Those precious few words you need to spew out the limited number of minutes you have with an editor or agent. Suddenly, your mouth turns to desert and your tongue drags the floor. What's a writer to do?

Pitching is not a natural activity for the majority of writers. You've registered for ACFW. You've requested meetings with all the top agents and editors in the business. You know your have a solid manuscript. So what's the problem? Your pitch. It's too long. Too short. Hoaky. In the wrong language.

This year at ACFW, Susan May Warren and My Book Therapy provide the solution to the tongue twisting, mouth drying, shiver-me-timbers fear of pitching. Join us at the MBT Polish and Pitch Workshop. It will be the day before ACFW kicks off so you will not miss a moment of the conference. And, you'll go into those coveted meetings with confidence and a solid, polished pitch.

See you at the conference!


  1. "Your pitch. It's too long. Too short. Hoaky. In the wrong language." LOL!! Great post, Reebs. Can't wait to see you at ACFW. Woohoo!!

  2. In the wrong language.
    Yeah, that would do it.
    "I'm sorry. I'm sure that's a great book idea. Could you tell me it in English, please?"
