The Pitchapalooza Experience: Before, During & After Part One: Prepping to Pitch I hate to start a post by tooting my own horn, but I must admit that I was totally prepared to pitch at Pitchapalooza. At least, that's what I thought before I actually, you know, pitched!

Yes, I did! 

I read my whole book all the way through in ONE sitting.

(And if I can do it -- YOU can do it.  Especially once it is edited.)
