I think it’s nice that there’s a book out there for just about every unpleasant task we humans must do. For authors, pitching is the root canal of our business (I’ve met very few who consider it to be fun). Agent Katharine Sands, in her book Making the Perfect Pitch, holds an author’s hand through the pitching process. Alas, it’s only a book — it gets you in the door, then leaves you do the hard work by yourself.

    Pitching is the root canal of publishing, you say…I disagree. My book, Making the Perfect Pitch, will tell you that pitchcraft is the writing you do about your writing and that pitching is about finding the right words and getting the right people to read them. Best, Katharine Sands
