November 2, 2022
EPISODE SHOW NOTES
 

Have you decided to get traditionally published and don't know how to start pitching your novel? Or maybe you're self-publishing and need a solid pitch for your target audience?

This week, author Brandon J. Greer joins us on the show as he goes in depth about how to write a query letter, why you need one, and so much more.

As always, thanks for listening, and let us know your thoughts in the comments below about the advice shared in the episode.

ABOUT BRANDON J. GREER

Brandon J Greer is second and third oldest in a family of ten. (He was second oldest until a new marriage brought a new child that bumped him to third.) To set himself apart from so many siblings, he discovered the arts. Drawing, acting, and writing pulled him in at a young age.
 
His first book, Around the World in About a Year, was completed in the sixth grade and was complete garbage but it won him a place in an arts competition at the local university. Now living in northern Utah with his wife and daughter, he travels as much as he can.
