Many authors appreciate the benefits of the author-agent relationship; with many publishing houses now refusing unsolicited manuscripts they are crucial if you hope for a publishing deal.
Getting your pitch package right won’t guarantee you a book deal – which is why we also cover the importance of a strong concept and good writing – but it will ensure you don’t fall at the first hurdle. In this workshop you’ll learn how to entice, intrigue and grab an agent’s attention.
Your pitch package also focusses the mind of what it is you are writing and pitching. It sounds peculiar but many writers do not fully understand what they have until they take off their writers’ PJs and put on their authorpreneur suit.
This workshop will help you to smooth your pitch package into the best possible shape:
- Synopsis – how to make it do justice to your book.
- Submission letter – what to say and what not to say to persuade an agent your book is worth serious consideration
- Your back story and promotional hook.
- Adding commercial appeal
- Compelling chapter synopses
- Sample chapters that sell
With support, hands-on advice and top tips from Jacq you’ll finish the day with a clear idea of your next steps in pitching your book. Central London location
