2013 The Art of the Pitch
This panel will discuss the most effective ways to pitch a book, including a range of examples from sales managers pitching to sales reps, publicists to media, and sales reps to buyers. Suggestions will come from both large presses and small and mid-size presses. Each pitch will be given appropriate context and we will open this up for a larger discussion at the close.
