WIP Wednesday: Prepping to Pitch

I hope you're enjoying all the interviews these past two weeks. It's been my pleasure to host some of the wonderful faculty and speakers of this year's Northwest Christian Writers' Renewal conference this coming Friday and Saturday.

This week I've been working on my pitch for the conference. It's a little different for me pitching a nonfiction book idea instead of a novel. The pitch sessions are a little different at this conference, as well. You meet with an agent or editor with a group of 4-5 other people. You each have three minutes to pitch your idea, ask questions and get a response. The past two years I really haven't had anything to pitch so this will be a good test if the idea is plausible in the eyes of certain faculty.

I don't have a full book proposal ready but I've been very encouraged by the progress I've made nailing down the specifics about the book. I feel very confident moving forward and will report back this weekend or early next week about how things panned out. I don't have any set expectations but a positive response would be encouraging.

What are you working on this week? Are there any conferences in your near future? I'd love to hear about it.
