Okay, so I'm stressing BIG TIME over going to the New Jersey Conference in 4 more days.
4 DAYS people!!
I am so not ready. My first book I've pitched enough times to know it by heart, and that's the book that finaled in the contest at this conference. But my second book I'm on the last chapter. I know how it ends, so I should be able to pitch it, but I've never pitched it before.
Ugh!! I wouldn't stress this much, but I still haven't heard from the agent who has my full. Yes, the same one as you, Manic;))) That will be so cool if they take us both on. So, anyway, I'm going to keep my agent apointment at the conference. But then I have another agent, who is accepting pitches at the conference, who emailed me (yes, she emailed me! I'm still in shock) and asked to sneak off and meet with me to discuss my books over a drink.
Okay, an 8 minute pitch is scary enough, but chatting over a drink could last forever. What will I say? Will I mess up? Will I talk too much about my books and scare her away? Because anyone who knows me, knows I talk a lot.
I mean, A LOT!!!!
And fast. The more nervous I get, the faster I talk.
And to top it all off, I died my hair to cover all the gray my kids have been giving me lately. and I look like freaking Elvira!! I can only hope it fades a little in the next four days.
Okay, gotta run. The bachelor is on and I still have to write my stupid pitch.
Have a good one all;))))
