How NOT to Pitch


I’ve gotten to know Lisa Buffaloe through her website, her radio show, and through mutual friends here in Dallas. She seems like a true kindred spirit. While zealous for the Lord, she also has such a fun personality and a clever sense of humor!

This video of how NOT to pitch at a writers’ conference made me laugh! Tweet this!

In honor of the ACFW conference this week (Yes, my knuckles are knocking and I can’t spell worth a flip!), I wanted to post this. I hope it gives you a laugh and reminds you to breath! I know it has helped me. And I’m gonna watch it again just because I’m still in need of air!


Author: Marji Laine

Marji is a recently "graduated" homeschooling mom whose twin girls have blessed her by sticking around the nest for a little longer. She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.
