New Pitch Your Work Site for Screenwriters and Authors

Many of you have heard me talk about how I believe that getting in on something early--a Website or even a big social network--may give you the best chance at prominent exposure and great networking opportunities.  This reminde me of sites from my friend Gene Cartwright, the power behind such sites at www.booksforfilm.com and others.  You owe it to yourself to at least explore his new venture:


Exciting New Website: www.pitchyourwork.com

Take advantage of this new opportunity for you to get your work out there, offering it to as many potential buyers as possible in the shortest amount of time.

A “Pitch” is a presentation in which you present your idea (Book, Screenplay or TV Series) as concisely as possible. A “Pitch” is a vital tool to help individuals sell their works. If you don’t know how to write a good one, go to your copy of The Frugal Book Promoter (www.budurl.com/FrugalBkPromo) and look up “pitch,” “logline,” “query,” and other associated words in the index. 

PitchYourWork.com mission is to offer a central location for authors and screenwriters to Pitch Your Work via the Internet to agents, producers, editors and other industry executives to whom you might otherwise not have access and to offer a central location for agents, producers, editors, and other industry executives to quickly review the works of new authors and screenwriters or the work of seasoned authors and screenwriters who are seeking change.

Visit www.pitchyourwork.com to get your work product out there!
