Writing Wednesday: Book Pitch!

I have just sent off my first book pitch! A friend of mine, an established author, checked it over for me and gave me some good advice. Exciting stuff!

An ebook publisher is advertising for proposals, and I had an idea for expanding my Broken Reed book into something more comprehensive. They made it easy by specifying exactly what they want in a proposal, but I still had to do a lot of thinking.

Having an idea is one thing, specifying exactly what it will consist of is quite another. But as I worked on it, I got really excited. I’ve realised I could get a lot of use out of the extra material, so I’m planning to write some of it now, while I’m waiting for a reply.

What is my proposal? You’ll have to wait and see! Wish me luck.

About Ann Marie Thomas

Married since 1974, Christian since 1986, 4 children, 4 grand children, disabled with fibromyalgia but was working almost full time until a stroke in May 2010 changed my life completely. Writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, I only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got distracted by local history and poetry about my stroke. Taking early retirement gave me the chance to concentrate on my writing. My book, Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, was published in print and ebook at Easter 2012. The success of Alina led to the publication of Broken Reed: The Lords of Gower and King John in September 2013, and The Magna Carta Story at Easter 2015. I am still writing science fiction - a series of novels called Flight of the Kestrel. For all my author news, see me author blog at www.annmariethomas.me.uk
