This coming Saturday the 18th at 1:00 PM marks the long anticipated arrival of the Pitchapalooza world tour to the Northshire Bookstore. Is it possible you haven't heard of Pitchapalooza? Outrageous! Unthinkable! I'm joking, of course, but it has become a fairly big deal around here and it becomes harder and harder to imagine not having heard of it.
Known sometimes as "American Idol" for writers, Pitchapalooza is all about giving undiscovered authors an opportunity to make their mark in the publishing world. David Henry Sterry and Arielle Eckstut's book The Essential Guide to Getting Your Book Published is one of the preeminent "getting-into-print guides" on the market. For more information on the details of Pitchapalooza, please visit here. But the bottom line is this; in the course of this event, Eckstut and Sterry will hold forth on their tried and true techniques for "birthing" a book from conception to publication, schedule a 20 minute future consult for all purchasers of their book and, most excitingly, from a pool of 20 participants selected, at random, to present a 60 second pitch for their book concept, choose a Pitchapalooza winner- the prize being an introduction to an agent or publisher.
