Pitching to impress an agent or editor in 15 minutes or less

Pitching to impress an agent or editor in 15 minutes or less

They say public speaking is people’s most common fear, even more than dying. So I suppose it’s not surprising that most writers fear pitching to agents and editors more than any other aspect of the writing and publishing process. Oh.

2015: The Year in Review

2015: The Year in Review

The trouble with driven, forward-thinking people is that they rarely take the time to look back. The past is the past, and it’s better left behind.

Crosshair Press will officially launch in January 2015, assuming all goes according to plan, and, as a staff, we thought it would be a good idea to help our audience get to know us before then. So for the next month, each Crosshair Press staff member will share a bit about who they are and
