Well I pitched again at this year's conference *TWICE IN FACT* and didn't give my wardrobe much thought. Didn't even purchase a single new item. I was much more at ease. (Thank you, Lisa & Linda!)
Here was my Friday pitch outfit:
(Pitched to Publisher Shadow Mountain)
Broke free of the must-wear black and wore dark brown. Daring I know!
BOTH REQUESTED FULL MANUSCRIPTS which is the goal for any pitch--get them to ask for pages!
I've also been sending my manuscript out to a few agents since the end of January. One rejection so far and it was a quick "Thanks, but it's not for me" rejection. Standard.
And I should note that my novel has graduated...it's no longer a WIP (Work In Progress). Something new is taking its place (YAY!) because IDEAL HIGH is DONE!!!*
*at least done till an editor asks for revisions!
