December’s eBook Summit is just around the corner and to get ready, we are running a self-publishing pitch contest for the chance to go for free.
As self-published titles multiply and digital libraries grow more crowded, crafting an effective book pitch is more important than ever. We are giving you the chance to polish your book proposal and deliver a short elevator version at our first-ever Mediabistro Book Pitch Party on November 3rd at Underbar (W New York – Union Square). Follow this link to RSVP to the party.
We will also collect book pitch submissions from now until October 27th. Follow this link if you want to submit. Out of all the contest submissions, we will choose ten talented authors to feature at the party. At the end of the night, our judges will award three lucky winners free tickets to Mediabistro’s eBook Summit and a featured spot on our Book Pitch Panel in December.
We’ve assembled a crack team of publishing professionals to judge the book pitch party. Meet them below…
