The Book Doctors: PITCHAPALOOZA @ Booksmith - January 20th @ 7:30 PM. It's like American Idol for books, only without the Simon. Writers get one minute to pitch their book ideas to a once-in-a-lifetime, all-star cast of publishing experts: Arielle Eckstut & David Henry Sterry, co-founders of The Book Doctors and co-authors of The Essential Guide to Getting Your Book Published; Chris Baty NaNoWriMo Founder and author of No Plot? No Problem!; and Laura Mazer, managing editor of Counterpoint Press. Arielle has been a literary agent at the Levine Greenberg Literary Agency for 18 years, and David is the best-selling author of 13 books, the last of which appeared on the cover of the Sunday New York Times Book Review. They've helped dozens and dozens of talented amateurs become professionally published authors. They've appeared everywhere from NPR to The New York times and taught at Stanford University. Winner gets an introduction to an agent appropriate for their book. Anyone who buys a book gets a free consultation worth $100!
