If you’ve landed here, you’re probably looking for one of my websites, or courses, or consulting portals for startups, entrepreneurs, or online marketers. Well friend, I’ve got bad news. After decades of helping launch businesses and brands around the globe, I’ve exchanged my startup tool belt for a writer’s pen.
These days you’ll find me helping writers navigate the traditional book world. Now, I teach writers how to treat their book like a product, and how to position and pitch it in a way that makes it irresistible to the publishing industry. (Not that different from my startup days.)
If you need help on your path to a book deal, meet me over at GetaBookDeal101. My Path to Published course, that walks you step-by-step through the process, or my Pitch to Published private writers’ group where top literary agents and acquisitions editors directly mentor my writers, might be for you.

I just signed with a west coast agent for my screenplay and novel. Kathy paved the path for me.
I just signed my second book deal and an audio deal on my debut novel. All because of what I learned from Kathy.
After two years of pitching, I signed with an agent two months after working with Kathy.

Kathy's recipe for success helped me peek behind the veil of the publishing world and secure my agent. Anyone seeking an agent, looking for publication, or simply wanting to be a part of a talented writing collective, should join Kathy and Pitched to Published.
One agent even commented specifically on my comprehensive, professional proposal and wanted to know how I'd learned how to do it. I told her my secret weapon was Kathy Ver Eecke.
Before I met Kathy, I felt overwhelmed by the process. Not only did I learn how to craft an effective query letter, Kathy gave me the confidence I needed to get it out there. And I did it! I just signed with an agent who is a perfect fit for me! Thank you, Kathy.
