Chirp! We are going to start the new year off with some brand new pitch slapping and fit tossing. In our Pitch Slapped series, we take a book blurb or a book pitch, and then proceed to pull it apart and stick it back together – all the while answering those pesky questions like: What works? What doesn’t work? What could be done differently? Why?
Here are a few of my favorite from last year:
- Selling the Story without the Blurb
- Building the Blurb, Setting the Story
- You only get 3 seconds to make a first impression.
I have a few pitch slap requests lined up, but I am always looking for more.
Do you have a pitch or synopsis that you’d like to send to the sacrificial altar? Or do you know an author who does?
