It’s an entirely different set of skills to talk about a book than to write a book.

Everyone thinks writers are born with a talent to talk to others about their work. But for an author, to boil the experience down to a short statement, or an “elevator pitch,” is nearly overwhelming.
The second big problem is authors are afraid when it comes to talking about their work. So “Pitch Your Book” teaches principles for success, including how writers can make fear their friend, and then use it to move themselves forward.
“Pitch Your Book” is designed to recreate, as closely as possible, a workshop experience for the author where they actually build their own pitch using a simple, three-step formula. In addition, they learn principles for successfully delivering their pitch to agents and editors. Later, they can transfer these same life-long skills for use with potential readers at book signings, bookstore owners, and in media interviews.
