Event Details:

For you to be successful with your book,
you'll need to be prepared to talk about it.

You never know when you'll have an opportunity to talk about your book. Someone asks you, "What's your book about?" ...and maybe you fumble for what to say, start rambling on, or stutter and can't figure out what to say.

Join us for an evening of learning how to talk effectively about your book in a safe space with industry pros.

** This event is limited to 25 people so we can give you our specific attention on your individual book pitch. **

What You'll Learn:

  • How to write a pitch like a Hollywood pro
  • The secrets of pitching your way into a literary agent's heart
  • Fool-proof ways to apply concise copy to your book marketing platform and promotional efforts
  • How to effectively answer the question, "So, what's your book about?"

Here's what Charlie said after attending this event:

"Jennifer and her guests are consummate book publishing insiders and were very generous and specific with their advice, which was spot on."

Don't get caught in another conversation about your book
that you don't feel ready for.
