Scoring in the Elevator tells you how to craft a good one or two sentence answer to that ubiquitous question, "So, what's your book about, anyway?"

Some pros say you should never revise for an agent or editor who hasn't agreed to buy your work, some say you always should. Do you want a Cookie, tackles that question, and describes the pitfalls of both those answers.

Meet the Author

Hilari Bell has been called the poster child for persistence. The first novel she sold was the fifth she'd written, and when it sold she was working on novel fourteen. She now has seventeen conventionally published novels with two more under contract, and is now branching into epublishing her backlist novels and her writing tips.

She likes board games and "decadent" camping. (In a pop-up trailer with a space heater, a stove--even a toaster!) She says camping is the only time she gets to do enough reading...though when it comes to reading, there's really no such thing as enough.

She's also a member of the best writing critique group in the universe. (Her opinion, anyway.) And you can find their webpage at http://thewildwriters.com/
