083I – Pitching Your Book at a Conference: An Interview with Laura Drake

Episode 083I Pitching Your Book at a Conference

Laura Drake is back for a timely look at pitching your book! It’s conference season, and writers conferences are one of the best places to find and pitch your book to agents and editors who may be the right fit. But how do you say everything you want to say in 2-10 minutes?!
