Welcome to Julie Anne Grasso Books author pitch services.

You might know me from Middle Grade Mavens The Podcast, where Pamela and I review middle grade books and interview industry professionals.

I’m also an Indie Author of 7 books for children, so I’ve had my fair share of being in the pitching trenches before deciding to publish my own.

Working in public libraries in the Family Engagement team means I deliver story times to hundreds of children, as well as developing our junior fiction collection.

As a part of Kidlitvic organising team the past two years, and attending the last six, I’ve heard an awful lot of pitches.

My latest passion is Graphic Novels… You can follow my Anatomy of a Graphic Novel journey via my Mavens Instagram.

I’ve also done loads of reels to help authors, and bookstagrammer’s get started on the road to pitching and reeling. To dowload my free Perfect Pitch Pie, or Insta Reels Tips For Authors, go here

In short, I know a lot of about KidLit and how to pitch it, so that is why I’m here to help.
