Are You Ready to Pitch?

With the holidays over and spring thaws happening, I tend to think of this time of year as the start of pitching season. Agent inboxes are open, yearly budgets are restocked again, and publishers and looking to get their hands on some crafty new stories. If you’re like me, you’re probably sitting on a pretty polished manuscript ready to pull up query tracker and yell “bombs away!”

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. First poem ever written walking home from elementary school:

Every step you take is a mile for a rock
They can’t move
Cause they got no groove

Total work of genius. That being said, writing has always been my anchor. I don’t think I could stop if I wanted to, or I would lose something too valuable about the core of who I am.
