I'm not NOT saying you'll need a one-line pitch

So just in case you find yourself in need of a one-line pitch, also called an elevator pitch or a logline...

Check out this pure awesome from agent and literary rock star, Nathan Bransford.

Because you really never know when you'll be called upon to spread the awesome... one magical line (not unlike Nutella).

Teaser Mission: Spread the Awesome.

Here is your mission, if you so accept:

Spread the AWESOME!

How is one to spread awesome? Well, I'm glad you asked. You can place one of these handy dandy buttons on your website or blog. Yes, that's right. You too can be a part of our awesome-ness by sharing it with your friends. You don't want to miss what is coming up. Nope. And your friends will be annoyed with you if you don't let them in on the upcoming news.

On September 1st, the awesome will explode with a bang.
(Hint: Have your pitch ready for our awesome guest.)

Copy the code and paste it to your favorite spot, and then you can share the awesome. You even get a choice of two.

Tease Me Awesome.

The rain fell as six writers, in various stages of the publishing journey, sat alone at their laptops.

As it often happens in these tales, one met another. In another corner of the blogosphere another two met...and another. You know how these things snowball.

They decided to join forces and form a crit family. To become Operation Awesome.

But it wasn't enough for them. They wanted to give back.

To share knowledge, a love of words, books and baked goods (okay, that may just be me) around the writing community.

They decided to create another family...a blog family.

They'd love it if you'd join them.
