Working on your Elevator Pitch

David B. Coe posted a great article yesterday on MagicWords.net  about how to whittle down your book's summary into an effective quick-pitch. Be sure to check it out.

Here's what I came up with:

“When an oppressed populace transforms the gladiator-slave Sol into a symbol of defiance, the Empire sends its most ruthless assassin to end the insurgence. Sol’s only chance is to do what no slave has ever done: escape the coliseum and the only home he’s ever known.”

What do you think?


  1. Not bad! It's a tight pitch (granted, you sent me your query to look at, so I'm already excited about it). Roll with it! :)

  2. Great pitch, Adam! Glad you did better than the one Mark Glenchur about on my site!


Love to get comments!!!
