Chronicle Books - Pitch for Charity
It's late and I'm up working on our submission to a very special event.
Chronicle books (one of the best publishers of my favorite books EVER) is hosting an event in San Francisco called "Chronicle Books' Pitch For Charity.
You head to their corporate office, stand in line, and you pay $10 for ten minutes of an Editor's time. You Pitch your book idea for five minutes and they give you five minutes of feedback. The ten dollars goes to Habitat for Humanity, so whatever happens, you've done good.
We're flying Chris down there to pitch our new book idea. Everyone in the office has worked on this project at one point or another. Robin and Mary have been HUGE helps in scanning, ordering, filing, placing, making, doing... almost everything up to this point. (Thank you so much, ladies!!)
Next Wednesday is the day we see how it goes!
If you happen to be in the area - or if you have a book and feel the need to fly out and try your luck at the publishing lottery, you should!
I feel like these chances don't happen enough, so we're going to give it all we've got and see what happens! Wish us luck!
