Map and Directions

Your story has a brilliant plot. 
Engaging characters. 
It’s well written. 
You even have a few key endorsers lined up. 

But can you sell it?   

 You only get one chance to make a first impression…one open door to pitch your novel, one moment to create a memory. 

We’ll teach you how to make it count. 


Let us help you get in shape for the ACFW conference with MBT’s Pitch and Promotion Scrimmage!

You know you have a powerful story, but if you don’t know how to pitch it, an agent or editor won’t catch your vision, join you on the journey to publication.  My Book Therapy is all about helping authors get published…and we’re focusing on pitching and promotion of your novel in this powerful pre-conference seminar.

First, we’ll teach you the difference between a high concept and low concept novel and how to to find the dramatic irony of your story.  Then, we’ll teach you the tools on how to craft a powerful pitch.

But, we’re just getting started.  You’ll take these tools and apply them to your story, working in small groups with trained My Book Therapy pitching coaches, people who have learned how to pitch their novels through intense MBT pitch and proposal training.  They’ll work with you to craft the perfect pitch, and practice with you until you learn to deliver it with confidence.

And then….and then you’ll learn how to make a powerful impact on agents and editors during the conference from best-selling author and marketing guru, Jim Rubart.  He’ll teach you how to get noticed and leave positive impression. 

Not only that, but we’ll answer all those questions about what to do after the conference, teaching how to decipher “agent-speak,” and overviewing what goes into a query letter and proposal package.

Finally, we’ll finish with words of encouragement to empower you to walk into the largest Christian writer’s conference in the nation with confidence. 

A good scrimmage is about preparing you for the “big event.”  Join us for this powerful seminar designed to help you bring your A game to the ACFW conference.
