2016 conference promo

It’s that time of year again! In case you aren’t keeping a countdown, there are 70 days left until the ACFW Conference begins.


I know. It kind of snuck up on us this year since it’s in August instead of September. But I can’t wait to get to Nashville and see everyone!

I’m passionate about using my experience to help authors achieve their conference goals! If you’re going to be pitching your work at a different conference this season, I’m proud of you and will extend these rates to you, too 🙂

Things to keep in mind:

  • You are welcome to read more about the services I currently offer, along with my experience.
  • These are my normal rates that will go back into effect after July 15.
  • I will offer an extra 10% discount for each client you refer to me!
  • While I can offer design guidance on one-sheets, I’m not a trained graphic designer, and my services focus on developing and refining promotional copy. However, I will be happy to recommend a designer to you!

If you have any questions or want to discuss the possibility of working together, feel free to email me — no pressure at all: laurie [at] laurietomlinson [dot] com. You can also reach out via social media or hit the connect button above to send a message.

Is this your first time pitching at a writing conference? Tell us what you’re up to!

{$25} Short Summary / Tagline / Hook: For $25, I will help you develop your 1-2 sentence hook, short book summary, or elevator pitch. 

{Price negotiable} Synopsis / Proposal: If you’d like a critique of your synopsis, proposal, or more in-depth help with your project, please email me at laurie {at} laurietomlinson {dot} com for pricing or use the contact form below!

{10% discount}: I will offer a 10% discount for each paying client you refer to this promo, so be sure to have your friends tell me who sent ’em! 🙂

I’d love to let my seven years of experience in book publicity help you present your manuscript in the best possible way so it can grab the attention it deserves from editors and agents. If you have any questions at all, feel free to check out my business page or contact me directly. I look forward to hearing about your project!
