eBook Summit Book Pitch Party Finalists Announced

As a kick off MediaBistro’s upcoming eBook Summit, next week we will host our first ever Book Pitch Party in New York City.

After reading through a large stack of book proposals, we are happy to announce the eBook Summit Pitch Party Finalists.

These writers will each deliver a short book pitch to a crowd of supportive readers, writers, and publishing professionals–three writers will win a free ticket to Mediabistro’s eBook Summit. The party will take place on November 3, 2010 in New York City at Underbar (W New York – Union Square). Follow this link to RSVP for the party.

At the party, we will showcase the work of these 10 talented writers, share practical book proposal advice for all writers, and help aspiring writers network with publishing professionals (including our distinguished judges). The winners will be featured at our eBook Summit on December 15th.
