Book Pitches

 Book Pitches

Today I worked with my publisher Tri Destiny Publishing, co-author Beth-Ann Mason, Author, and my clients on writing pitches for our books.

SatmarVampire 122x150 Book Pitches

cover by Covadonga Palacio Perez

Assignment

The assignment was: write in 5 sentences or less:

  1. what’s key to your story,
  2. who your readers are,
  3. why it’s unique (aka: why will it sell).

My Pitch for The Satmar Vampire (WIP)

So many vampire books available it can be overwhelming, but what about Jewish vampires? Ones that can go out during the day, are immune to holy water, crosses, even being staked through the heart? Targeting men, women, Jews in their 30s and 40s, my book focuses on best friends turned in one moment from men fleeing a concentration camp into vampires. What if one goes on a killing rampage? How do you decide between human strangers and your best friend and the only other Jewish vampire?

Can you pitch your book in 5 sentences? Challenge your friends (tweet this)

Your Assignment

  2. Write a pitch for your book

      I’m sure there is room to improve on it. But there always is isn’t there?
