Pitchapalooza is American Idol for books (only kinder and gentler). Around 10 writers will be selected at random to pitch their book. Each writer gets one minute—and only one minute! Dozens of writers have gone from talented amateurs to professionally published authors as a result of participating in Pitchapalooza. Whether potential authors pitch themselves, or simply listen to trained professionals critique each presentation, Pitchapalooza is educational and entertaining for one and all. At the end of Pitchapalooza, the judges will pick a winner. The winner receives an introduction to an agent or publisher appropriate for his/her book. Bestselling author David Henry Sterry and agent-to-the-stars Arielle Eckstut, who also work together as The Book Doctors, will host the party and provide feedback.
If you are interested in pitching your book idea, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject 'Pitchapalooza' so we can send you the details and put you on the list.
