WLT Conference – My Pitch
I read this pitch to the for my complete-but-needs-an-editor novel at the Writers League of Texas Agents and Editors Conference last weekend, a bonus which came from being a Manuscript Contest Finalist:
They called her the white rocket, and for many Air Force pilots, she was their first true love. She was sleek, sexy, and fast.

When you rolled her over on her back, pulled her nose down, and shoved the throttles into afterburner, you’d be supersonic in a couple of seconds. As they said, she flew like a bat out of hell.
