Good News!

I’ve mentioned David Sterry and Arielle Eckstut’s book, “The Essential Guide to Getting Your Book Published” before, so all I’ll say about that is, if you haven’t bought it or at least read it, what are you waiting for? Buying and reading that book was the beginning of my good fortune.

I bought their book when they came through Kansas City last winter during a “Pitchapalooza” event. (If you see one of these come up in your neighborhood and you have any writing aspirations, GO. You will not regret it. Even if you do nothing else for the entire evening but sit and listen, you will hear some of the best feedback you’ll ever get and you’ll receive it for free. What more could a starving artist ask for – well, beyond a six figure book deal. LOL) At the Kansas City tour, they offered every person who bought their book a twenty minute conference call to discuss their pitch. It’s not a six figure book deal, but when your query isn’t getting you anywhere, that twenty minutes is GOLD. If you’d like to read their testimonials, click on the link.

My pitch was not chosen for presentation at the Pitchapalooza, but buying their book and registering to receive their newsletters put me in a place where I did not expect to land. I am now a contributor on their Facebook page! I couldn’t be happier and David and Arielle have been the soul of generosity.

Doing a little jig… and off to find another quote. 🙂
