Thanks, Stephanie Palmer, author of Good in a Room, for sharing such valuable pitching advice on our October Blog Talk Radio show.

Here are three key pieces of advice from yesterday’s “meeting,” and links to Stephanie’s blog posts that go into these ideas in more depth.

1.  Be an expert in your genre.  That’s how you become the kind of writer executives want to hire.

2.  Pay attention to the five stages of the meeting. Just like screenplays have three acts, pitch meetings are structured in five stages.

3.  Anticipate likely questions and prepare answers. The Q & A portion of the meeting is where the deal is made.

Stephanie also shares examples of successful pitches on Twitter and Facebook. Plus, if anyone comments on the blog before October 31st, they’re eligible to win a free signed copy of Stephanie’s book.
