This is an advanced two-day online bootcamp that will get your book ready to pitch to publishers.
You need to have a completed and solid final draft in order to join. We are taking both novels and non fiction / memoir books this time (no children's books or illustrated)
This is a unique opportunity to work with this top coaching team to get your book polished, ready to submit to publishers.
Be prepared to work hard so book out the entire two days in your diary.
Each hour has the following structure:
10-15 minute MENTORING process
40-minute DOING session
5 minute break.
Over two days we will work closely together online to:
- Write, perfect and refine your proposal.
- Zone in on your reader
- Refine your title and subtitle to readers trends
- Add edge, voice and attitude to your book
- Clean up and tailor your first 5 chapters
- Build your author brand documents.
- Get all your marketing material ready and get your brand collateral ready.
- Hone a list of target publishers
- Get professional as well as peer feedback on your book, pitch and presentation.
We work with writers all over the world and often find that writers stall on this critical step. Because we are both SUPER STRICT, and we want to see your book get out into the world, we are prepared to push you all the way... with some expert guidance. It also pushes you to understand your author brand and to start to build it with guided support.
WHAT WRITERS SAY
Bootcamp is the name of the group and bootcamp it is. Be prepared to be flat out working on all the different tasks, but by the end of it, you will have a better manuscript and a professional proposal as well as the tools and steps for what to do next. Clear your diary and make time and space for it as it's a once in a lifetime opportunity to get your book as polished and preened as you can and the best chance of finding a publisher at the end of it all.

If I had not met both Kate and Sarah this MS would never be turning into a future book. They have taught me a great deal not only about the how to improve what was a very poor MS and have given extensive insight into what the next steps will be. They have always been clear that it won’t be an easy ride but knowing that we have their support as we take the next steps. Being a part of a writing group is so empowering, watching others bring out their books and giving me hope that mine will manifest soon.

Together they bring the right balance between gentle pushing/cheering and kicking butt to go, go, go!! The critical feedback they provide is also valuable and hightly professional. This is not for a "wish I could write" crowd. It is for the people who want to, and will, do it!

This course is a bootcamp by two extremely knowledgeable ladies, they are a duo of energy and love, with just the right amount of pepper to let you really taste your morsel. They drive you hard, with a loving hand, and keep the energy high, always with encouragement, tips, advice and mostly a powerhouse of knowledgeable experience. Being on this bootcamp was like being beaten by two sadistic Mistresses, it doesn't matter which way you turn, you have two butt cheeks and four very willing hands to smack you into shape. And I love a good spanking!

Pound for pound, the best investment I have ever made.
I did the pitch to publish course during the end of last year. It was hard work. We were given many tasks, Each week you had to take accountability for your own progress. I have to admit I often wondered if all of this was relevant to my goals.
Now, a few months later, I am so glad I stuck with the program. I'm a motivational speaker looking to established myself in what is a very competitive field. It seems that around every corner, I make use of the tools I created as part of the course, Whether it is my one pager, using social media, building a brand, a professional headshot or using helpful apps, Kate Emmerson and Sarah Bullen is hiding behind it all.

I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who has dreams of publishing. It turns a dream into a real possibility and set me on a path to feeling like my book would have the best chance of being published. The course is run by experts who give freely of their time and expertise and it makes the course so worthwhile. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who has dreams of publishing.

A definite must for all new authors who are committed to submitting their manuscripts, to get all the do’s and don’ts.
This is truly amazing for those who are focussed and motivated to move forward with their books. It really is a bootcamp because of all the momentum you get when you're part of it.
Pitch to Publish Bootcamp is a terrific mentorship by two of the most vivacious women. I would recommend it to any author who is stuck after writing their first draft or who needs to strengthen their voice. It has taught me more about myself, my flaws and how to improve that I ever thought a writing course would. If you’ve ever wanted to write a book, get it done and get on board this mentorship. You will not regret it. Zeandri Rautenbach
Loved the clear and systematic process, the group support. It made me really look at my book from a publisher’s point of view and question pre-conceived ideas about myself, and helped me detach myself from the process of ‘getting out there’ Thank you thank you thank you!! Robyn
Kate Emmerson and Sarah Bullen, you rock! I would be ignorant of the process of getting it out there had I not joined PITCHED TO PUBLISH. What a ride. A difficult/ wonderful/ honest/ testing course that I highly recommend. RB
I have just completed the mentoring group with Kate Emmerson and Sarah Bullen and would like to thank Kate, Sarah and all the group members for their inspiration and amazing support! I went from starting to edit my first draft of my novel, to completion of the manuscript, with an updated Facebook page and new look website created along the way to share me and my ideas with the world. So very exciting. I ended with submission of my book proposal to nine publishers, and..... had the most thrilling news last week.... one of the first publishers I submitted to asked me to send my complete manuscript for further consideration.

My entire book writing journey with these two ladies has been amazing. The bootcamp just pushes you to get finished. It really is seeing you all the way to the submitting of a proposal to possible publishers stage. Their guidance, encouragement and positive/constructive feedback is wonderful and the support of the whole group is uplifting & motivational. Enjoyed every minute.
