How To: Be the Next Big Thing

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 [1] 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 [1] and submission guidelines [2]. And it looks like they’re no longer accepting adult fiction submissions, so that novel you’ve got kicking around will have to wait.
