Promo Day Success Stories: Bet You Didn't Think MS Could Look This Good

Promo Day Success Stories: Bet You Didn't Think MS Could Look This Good


Every year during the Promo Day event, a group of publishers take part in pitch sessions. These publishers are on the look out for talented authors with the right manuscript. 

How the pitch sessions work:


1) Participating publishers post their submission guidelines to the event forums.
2) Registered Promo Day attendees can then send them their pitch.
3) The publishers send back a reply THE SAME DAY. That's right, no waiting weeks, months, or even years for a reply. They let you know during the event if they are interested or not.
4) If the publisher is interested they will then guide you through the next steps in the process.


Promo Day Success Stories


Today I wanted to share with you one of the pitch session success stories.

Author Lisa A. Baeringer pitched her idea to publisher Cedar Loft Publishing during the 2015 event. Her book Bet You Didn't Think MS Could Look This Good: Ramblings of a Medicated Mind was released October 2016 (purchase now at: http://amzn.to/2eSoU3i). 

Ms Baeringer had this to say "Promo Day is an excellent event to participate in. My manuscript was picked up by Cedar Loft Publishing during this event. It's full of wonderful advice and information concerning the publishing trade. Promo Day offered me the opportunity to get my writing career off the ground."

About the book:

Lisa had a good life; married to her high school sweetheart, two handsome sons, and a nice home. Quite literally, in the blink of an eye, her whole world turned upside down. Sickness began to not only ravage her body, but also her world. In her own words, taken from her private journal, she takes you through what daily life is like when you have a seriously incurable, chronic illness. It gets even more complicated when the illness she was told she had turns out to be something else, something rare and possibly even fatal.

Cedar Loft Publishing CEO/Executive Editor, Jenny McKinney, said "Taking pitches for new books during Promo Day has been an amazing experience for Cedar Loft Publishing. We were able to sign a new author, Lisa Baeringer, and publish her book, Bet You Didn't Think MS Could Look This Good. Her book has the potential to become a best seller and we couldn't be happier."
