Announcing Pitch Week VII Winner: Sally Newhart!

Sally Newhart photo- cropMule Tales from the French Quarter presents a concise history of the mule in the city of New Orleans, throughout the state of Louisiana and the United States.  It is interspersed with stories told to Sally by the carriage drivers of New Orleans who spend their days, and nights, driving locals and tourists to the Cemeteries, the Garden District and around the French Quarter. It is an adult, sometimes inebriated, version of “Kids Say the Darndest Things.”

“There were six talented writers in Pitch Week VII. Each of us had professional help over a period of months to edit, perfect an elevator pitch, design a cover, write cover copy, put together a marketing plan and develop a basic book presentation. I was fortunate enough to win the publishing deal, but we all were in a position to self-publish at the conclusion of the competition. Each of us left the process at the When Words Count Retreat with five new friends and a home in Vermont where we plan to return forever. I know I will.”
