Jan 25, Watchung Bookstore, Montclair NJ, Pitchapalooza + Workshop limited to 25 writers http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=259774004073460


We’ve done Pitchapaloozas from Miami to Hollywood, Cape Cod to Santa Cruz. We’ve done workshops from Stanford University to the Texas Book Festival. But we’ve never done them together. Until now. Our workshop gives you the nuts & bolts to launch your book successfully, from platform, to pitch, to publication. Pitchapalooza is American Idol for books (only without Simon). Writers gets one minute—and only one minute, to pitch their books! In the last month, three writers have gotten publishing deals as a result of participating in Pitchapalooza. The workshop lasts an hour. Pitchapalooza ninety minutes.
