"Pitching" to agents at writer's conferences is a critically important piece of a writer's life. It can also make your palms sweat and your head ache! Based on my training as a Life Coach, and my experience as an author who has has successfully pitched to agents, I teach writers practical tools that make this process a much easier experience!

I look forward to connecting with you on twitter and beyond ...
Wonderful congratulations again on your beautiful book!
Hi Tracey, thanks for friending, where I am? (that's a good one) I am a newbie to fiction, having only written nonfiction, grad school stuff, but that's why I'm here. I decided to quit my doc program in education and write about my work in a more creative way
- after reading some quantum physics I had an epiphany about how innate intelligence, what we know when we're born, is described the same way as the foundation of the disciplines,math, science, etc., for ex., the laws of physics, laws of the universe - all these are based on the concept of symmetry, which is defined with terms like equality, unity and beauty ! It demands that I write about it with these terms in mind, so I've got a daunting task set out for myself but I am here enjoying the generosity of all the caring ladies here that I can learn from.
Oh, and I am also 60, and never knew it could be OK!
Thanks for the friend request, Tracey. I'm glad to connect with you. I'm a short story writer who's currently trying to make the leap into novel writing. My short stories have been published in commercial and literary magazines, but the novel is still a work in progress. It's an upmarket commercial novel that I hope will be popular with book clubs.
Hi Tracey, so nice to connect with you! I write suspense thrillers, paranormal romance and some paranormal fantasy. I recently joined a writers critiques group in my town and submitted a short story to a magazine. I also received my first rejection letter today. Haha...it's okay, this means I'm now officially an author. I'm not in the least discouraged by it, but encouraged to write more and sharpen my skills.
