To practice pitching your novel to an agent, first pitch it to an unsuspecting friend. Ask this good and patient friend to explain your novel back to you. If it’s unrecognizable, think critically about what you should refine! #pubtip #writingtip #WilWrite18

I’m taking pitches at #WilWrite18 Aug. 3 - 5 in Portland, and it’s going to be a grand old time!

#pubtip: Make the conflict of your novel the focus of your pitch; make the stakes apparent; give some comp titles; and don’t get lost in the weeds of subplots!
