bookDo you have a book you’ve been working on? Are you the next Mark Twain/Ernest Hemingway/Victor Hugo/whatever? Turns out you may have a chance to prove it, if you’re ready to put a small amount of money where your mouth is. Chronicle Books is holding a “Pitch for Charity” event from 3-5 p.m. on Dec. 8 at 680 2nd Street in San Francisco. The deal is this: for a suggested donation of $10 to go to Habitat for Humanity, you’ll get to meet briefly with a Chronicle Books editor and tell them why they absolutely must take advantage of the opportunity to publish your work.

You should come prepared with a five-minute pitch, a cover sheet for your piece and a few sample pages. For more information, see the Chronicle Books Blog post and submission guidelines. And it looks like they’re no longer accepting adult fiction submissions, so that novel you’ve got kicking around will have to wait.
