Events

Eric has sold clients’ books to major publishers including Avon, Harper Collins, Ballentine, Loveswept, Harlequin, Samhain, Midnight Ink, and more. These sales have been documented in Publisher’s Marketplace. As a result, he’s often asked to speak at writers’ conferences (and take pitches) across the United States and in Europe. Eric has lectured on pitching books, publishing, and showbiz with writers from New York, Boston, and Maine, to Wisconsin, Seattle, Los Angeles, Geneva, and more.
