Open Call for Pitches: Carina Press

As y’all probably know, in addition to my own editing clients, I am a part of Carina Press’s freelance editorial team. Today (from 9am-9pm EST) Carina is holding its annual #CARINAPITCH .

Now, I’m still very green in legacy publishing, so bear with me here as I attempt to explain how this works.

Carina editors will read every #CARINAPITCH. If one of us is interested in your pitch, we will ❤ it. We will then DM you with our personal submission link. Trust me, more than one of us will like your pitch, so the choice is yours. Be sure to let us know about your idea and yourself through the use of hashtags such as #POC #OwnVoice #HR , etc.

Part of what makes #CARINAPITCH great is that every submission receieved as a part of this event will get personal feedback.

There is still time to share your best ideas with us.

Review: Girl With a Pearl Earring

Girl With a Pearl Earring
Girl With a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I listened to this audio book years ago, and the feelings this story evoked have stuck with me all these years. I knew nothing about writing then…I was schlepping my way through life and the cover struck me, so I borrowed it from the library. I sat in my car long after my commute to hear more about Vermeer and Griet.

I may revisit this title one of these days and see if I have the same response.
