Two more pitch opportunities for an Agent and Soul Mate Publishing April 3rd

Are you are a member of Savvy Authors? April and August are the pitch months, and I’ve volunteered to help my fellow authors find agents and editors. It’s going to be an exciting month.

Two more pitch opportunities tomorrow April 3rd from Pam Van Hylckama Vlieg of Forward, agent, and my new house Soul Mate Publishing again.

She’s doing a one day blog.

Pam van Hylckama Vlieg started her literary career as assistant to Laurie McLean in early 2012. By April Pam was promoted to Associate Agent at Larsen Pomada. In January of 2013 after selling twenty-one books in her first year of agenting Pam was promoted to agent. When Laurie McLean mentioned creating Foreword, Pam jumped at the chance to follow her mentor and create a new agency together.

Pam blogs at, and Brazen Reads. She partners her blogs with her local bookseller Hicklebee’s where magic happens daily.

Pam grew up on a sleepy little Podunk town in Virginia. She’s lived in the UK, several US states, and now resides in the Bay Area of California. She has two kids, two dogs, two guinea pigs, but only one husband. You can find her mostly on Twitter where she wastes copious amounts of time.


1.       The day (between 4/1-4/30) you prefer – April 3rd
2.  A one-day blog
3.  I’m looking for fresh, sassy writing in any genre except historical.  I love a well written hero and when words paint an emotional picture.  I prefer contemporary, erotica or light paranormal.
4.  I’m flexible in the pitch.  Be unique, but keep it to a paragraph or less.  –


 Shawnna has a background in the medical field and has earned her writing stripes the old-fashioned way–lots and lots of hard work, baby!  She has won a few awards, is still writing her books the way she wants, and lovin’ every minute of it.  And she’s proud to say she’s even achieved her dream of becoming an editor. Who knew?

She has a love of sass and edgy, strong heroes. She is open to just about anything except historical and has enjoyed books from multiple genres because, hey, good writing is good writing.  But, she prefers Contemporary and erotica and it’s a must to make her feel something.

‘Make me cry, make me laugh, make me sit on the edge of my seat–and I’m sold.’
