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.
