Your Dream: see your book on store shelves

You've done it. You've typed "THE END." You've poured hours, days and more than a few nights and weekends into your manuscript. It's been reviewed, revised, proofread and polished until it shines like a bright copper penny. You are ready for the next step...

the Pitch.

But the pitch is a big scary thing. You see and hear stories of rejection. Then there's the ultimate author decision to put your dream in a box thinking, "Someday I'll take that chance."

We can help you create a pitch package that gets noticed.

We can help you create a pitch package that gets noticed.

Author Accelerator wants you to take that chance today. Our 8-step Pitch Track program is here to help you assemble all the elements you need to perfect your pitch and entice agents to represent your book and make your dream a reality.


Pitch Track Options for fiction and memoir

The low-down on the application: This is NOT about the quality of your idea or your writing. This is ENTIRELY about whether the program will be a good fit for you. Pitch Track is a fantastic program for writers who have a completed, polished manuscript and would like to be published by a traditional publisher. Writers who self-publish or choose a hybrid route do NOT need to take this course.

Stay Tuned!

Later in 2017, we will be offering a Pitch Track for self-help and how-to writers, and in 2018, a Premium version of Pitch Track will be available with Jennie Nash. Join our mailing list to be notified when the new courses are accepting applications.

Refine Your Pitch. Sell Your Book.

Pitch Track is an 8-step program to help you prepare all the elements of a book proposal so that they're polished and ready to send to a curated agent list developed in conjunction with your personal book coach.

Get Personalized Feedback

You will be paired with a book coach who has expertise in your genre. Your coach will analyze each element of your pitch and give you detailed feedback and suggestions on how to make it as strong as possible. You can expect a summary letter and comments on your pages 3 to 4 weeks after submission. Comments may range from notes on the big-picture structure to specific questions about word choice.

Jennie’s pitch-development process is major league. She helped me in a few short weeks develop a killer pitch package that led me directly to one of the top agents at one of the top agencies in the business — which in turn led me to a two-book deal. Pitching is far more complicated than it seems, and Jennie’s system is foolproof. She gave me secret, insider tips that positioned me to stand out from the competition. She knows her stuff.
