This week your Flicker of Inspiration prompt is to give us a pitch. A perfect pitch. Think of the description on the back of your favorite novel, the words that make you buy that book for your Kindle, the short paragraphs that let you know you MUST read that book.
Take the description of Cormac McCarthy's The Road:
"A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food-—and each other."
So give us your novel, your memoir, your non-fiction masterpiece in 250 words or less. Make us want to pick your book up; make that literary agent know she wants to represent you!
The linkup will be posted on Sunday. Come back and share your pitch!
