A chance to win a copy of Writer Mama every day in March 2009!

A chance to win a copy of Writer Mama every day in March 2009!

Today, the Writer Mama story continues over at Cindy Hudson’s blog, Mother-Daughter book club.

I want to take this opportunity to point out one of the best role models of a professional-quality platform built on personal experience that I’ve seen. Cindy Hudson has integrity, focus, a consistent work ethic, and a generous spirit about her topic. She channels all of the quality and value of her cumulative efforts into her online presence.

If every writer could be as service-oriented in her approach as Cindy is, then bingo! A book deal would follow.

If you want to see someone whose book is going to succeed with flying colors, watch Cindy when her book, Book by Book: The Complete Guide to Creating Mother-Daughter Book Clubs is released by Seal Press in October 2009. She’s someone to watch!

So please join me over at Cindy Hudson’s Mother-Daughter Book Club blog for today’s chance to win a copy of Writer Mama.

Pitching Practice: Write Six Queries in Six Weeks
Prerequisites: WPSS recommended or Permission from the Instructor
In this class, pitching is all we do. Over the course of six weeks, we crank out six queries. Exactly the kind of practice you need if you want to get in the habit of landing better-paying assignments. After you write and send six queries, you will never again ask, “What makes a strong query?” You will have developed your own and style into prototypes that you can use over and over to obtain future assignments. And that’s what query writing is about. Not someone else’s formula, but finding your own query-writing rhythm.
