#SonOfAPitch is just around the corner! To help writerfolk everywhere prepare for this great query event, author and Son of a Pitch founder Katie Hamstead joined me to talk about what SoaP is, how it can help you refine your query and first 250 words, and what you need to do to participate.

If you miss the participation deadline this time around—no worries! Katie runs SoaP twice yearly, with the biggest event taking place in February.

Katie was born and raised in Australia. Her early years spent daydreaming in the “bush” and having her father tell her wild bedtime stories inspired her passion for writing. She now lives in Arizona with her husband, two daughters, and their dogs.

When her debut novel Kiya: Hope of the Pharaoh climbed to bestselling status, Katie believed she was onto something and now has a slew of novels available.

You can learn more about SoaP, Katie, and her work at kjhstories.blogspot.com, and by following her on Twitter @HamsteadKatie.
