What have I agreed to?!?
Oh sure, I’ve sent out manuscripts and contacted more publishers,and agents than I could shake that proverbial stick at.
But I’ve never done a verbal pitch to either. That’s all changing tomorrow when I have 30 seconds to pitch to an agent from a big London agency.
I repeat, ‘gulp!’
I blame my mate. He said “It’ll be fun – you’ll enjoy it.” And at the time, it seemed like a good idea. (He’s since been afflicted with nerves, too, so there is some justice.)
Now, nerves are setting in. I’m pitching something I started a while back, but put to one side while I worked on my Jaared Sen series. Silly really, as it’s probably got some of my best writing in it.
So, yes, I’m doing a verbal pitch tomorrow. Wish me luck…
