Pitch a Novels in a Single Sentence

For all the fabulous Wisconsin writers who have successfully published their books, many more are waiting in the wings for an opportunity to grab the attention of an editor or an agent who will be instantly captivated and want to read the manuscript.

Here is a great post that shows how to tell in one compelling sentence what a novel is about. The post, “Your Novel in ONE Sentence—Anatomy of Story Part 5”, is on the warriorwriters blog by Kristen Lamb, author of bestsellers We Are Not Alone—The Writer’s Guide to Social Media and Are You There, Blog? It’s Me, Writer.  (https://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/2015/05/18/your-novel-in-one-sentence-anatomy-of-story-part-5/)

The same boil-down-to-the-essence technique will undoubtedly work for a work of nonfiction as well.

Happy pitching, Wisconsin writers!
