Dear Ms. Holmes,

Two days ago, I sat down in front of my first agent to pitch my first manuscript. Was I nervous? Of course.

But I felt prepared having gone through the lessons on your site, listened to the radio interview and watched the practice pitch videos. 

The agent said, "I want it. Send me fifty pages." (Hurray! Hurray!)

And then she asked if I had been doing a lot of querying and pitching. I said no, this was my very first one. "You are so poised, so calm, such great presence," she said. 

It's thanks to you, Ms. Holmes and the fantastic preparation your website provides. 

With appreciation,
Jennifer G.
