There is no one path to publication; no one way to get an editor or agent’

s attention. In this workshop, three authors draw on their own experiences

to prepare you for success on the three most common paths to an editor or

agent’s desk.

The Pitch: Kira Sinclair’s pitch led to a request, then a sale. Kira

will go over the basics of how to craft a short, informative pitch designed to

showcase your book’s best bits and leave the agent or editor requesting

more. Kira now writes for Harlequin Blaze.

The Pile: Kimberly Lang is a slush pile success story. Since your query

letter is the first thing an editor or agent reads, it needs to be the

very best it can be. We’ll build on what we learned from Kira’s pitch lessons

to build a query letter that encourages the editor or agent to read on.

Kimberly is a USA Today bestselling author for Harlequin Presents/Mills &

Boon Modern Heat.

The Public: Lynn Raye Harris got an editor’s – and the public’s –

attention in a big way when she won the Harlequin-sponsored Instant Seduction

contest. Lynn will share her tips on how to make your first chapters pack

the punch needed to get judges, editors, agents (and eventually readers!)

wanting to see what happens next. Lynn is a USA Today bestselling author for

Harlequin Presents/Mills & Boon Modern.
