QUICK BYTES – September 8, 2011

SnappyGet a taste of these…

Want to connect with agents in the publishing and screen industries? For $50, submit your pitch to http://www.writerspitchbook.com. Started at the UNF (Univ. of North Florida) writers conference in 2009, then-director Sharon Cobb saw the need to provide an affordable service to the writing community. In 2012, 2 books will be prepared and sent out to agents who agree in advance to accept and read the pitches. A good pitch ensures the work is marketable and the synopsis is very compelling. Will it grab the agent’s attention?

Want a way to keep up with what’s happening around the marketplace without doing all the research yourself? Sign up for a great newsletter at www.getbooksavvy.com! These two authors are dedicated to keeping other authors from becoming bait in the chummy world of publishing!

WRITING FOR FUN, FAME & FORTUNE by publisher/author/coach Rik Feeney is now available at Amazon and B&N in print and e-book formats. This well-written how-to is both easy to follow and inspiring. Want to write that book but no idea how to start it let alone write it? This book is just as applicable to term papers and articles as it is to writing a book! Get a well-rounded book-writing education for $14.95. It certainly isn’t the ONLY way to write a book, but it will get you off “thinking about it” and actually completing a draft in a matter of weeks!
