Are you ready to pitch? Have you done your homework? Most agents and publishing houses only want work that is finished and polished.
Read up on the publisher to make sure they accept what you are pitching.
Give them that one line sentence, or tag that will captivate their attention. A hook which will draw them into the story.
Be confident and professional, and I wish you all the very best with your upcoming pitches. :)
I also thought I'd mention Rachelle Gardner's blog who has a Guest Blogger, Dabney Hedegard. She's talking about conferences.
In a nutshell most publishing houses are looking for writing that stands out, for voices that shine, and a strong plot/story line that they can sell, that is marketable. Don't forget to check out Rachelle's site.
I've been spending most of this week editing and writing, it's been a full on week and I'm exhausted today. lol...
I'm heading away for the weekend tomorrow. I hope you enjoy yours. It comes around so quickly doesn't it? Have a good one and enjoy. :)
