Writer Resources & Book Pitch Contest Extension

ebooksummit23.jpgToday we launched a new “Writer Resources” category at GalleyCat, collecting practical tools for aspiring, published, and self-published authors.  To celebrate, we’ve also extended the deadline for our book pitch contest until October 27th–giving all those readers a chance to polish their queries for first ever Mediabistro Book Pitch Party on November 3, 2010 in NYC.

As you can see, GalleyCat now has five primary themes highlighted at the top of the blog: PublishingDeals Bookselling, GalleyCat Reviews, and Writer Resources. These categories will archive our content for the different parts of our audience. Feel free to share your thoughts about these new tools and check out all our categories for more specific themes.

We also encourage all the writers in the audience to enter our ongoing Book Pitch contest–a chance to win a free ticket to the eBook Summit in December. Our events team decided to extend the deadline for entries until October 27th to give everybody a chance to participate. Follow this link for all the contest details.
