So I entered the Carina Editor Pitch after prompting from my wonderful CPs. Have I told you how fab they are? Well, they're fab!
And guess what? I got picked…aaggghhhh, I mean, yaaaayyy! Thing is, I’ve never pitched anything in my life (unless you count the past life where I worked for a company that sold ‘discount rejuvenated perfume’) I'm not proud, and I quit after the first day when I realised there’s no such thing as "discount rejuvenated perfume". I did sell eight on my first day though so...
I digress. Yes, so I have to pitch to Angela James of Carina Press next Wednesday, which is in (gulp) six days! I’m not (quite) terrified yet, and knowing myself, I probably won’t be until about an hour before when you'll find me cowering in a corner mumbling, "why, why, why..."
Seriously though, I’m excited because even if nothing else comes of it, I'll learn the process of pitching for the next time I decide to, er, jump of a cliff, lol.
So, wish me luck and know that any words of advice or encouragement will be gratefully received :)
