Note: pitching services are only available after a manuscript evaluation to ensure the manuscript is ready to pitch.
Step 1: Pitch Prep
Once you have a solid manuscript that is nearly as perfect as you can make it, you’re ready to pursue publishing. If you want to publish traditionally with a publisher, you’ll need to get a literary agent.
Pitching literary agents is a huge step in your publishing journey and can be terrifying. But if you’ve got all your assets polished and ready to go and know just who you want to pitch, you’re much more likely to have success — or at least feel a little less terrified. (Note: I can’t promise that you’ll get an offer of representation, but I can promise that with I my help you’ll make a good first impression on the agents you pitch.)

Step 2: Monthly Pitch Support
Pitching can be stressful. As your book coach, I can support you through the waiting, the analyzing of responses from literary agents (or the lack of responses), and, in the exciting event of an offer, help you navigate what to do.
- Weekly check-in emails.
- Video call availability for when you just need to chat (or vent!) about the process.
- Unlimited email support for questions, concerns, and encouragement.
