Release day: The Pitch
In three years Madeline Spencer has single-handedly grown her marketing agency, Grounded Marketing, into one of the country’s fastest growing companies. But her success has been at the expense of her social life, and her girlfriends have had enough. They’ll do whatever it takes, from speed dating to blind dates, to show her there’s more to life than work.
Only Maddy is having a hard time forgetting about her business. She’s about to pitch for her biggest client ever and the mysterious media mogul, Paul Neilsen, has volunteered to mentor her. Maddy might just be in with a shot of landing the account—if she can keep her mind on the job.
Working with Paul is not at all what she’d imagined, and Maddy finds herself torn between her ever increasing workload and her feelings for Paul. She’s discovering playing in the big league means making sacrifices…and Maddy must decide what she can’t live without.
Belinda dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
The Pitch is set in the world of corporate marketing. Like any corporate profession, it can be hard to find love when the hours are long and the work is demanding. In The Pitch, I wanted to explore the human side of the people who choose these sorts of careers. The people behind the suits I guess you would say. I do this through humour and friendship. And, of course, through the journey Maddy goes on when she’s faced with the prospect of love when running a demanding business she is equally passionate about. I really enjoyed writing about Maddy’s world because once upon a time I worked in similar environments. For this reason I hope readers find her story authentic, as well as enjoying the love story and maybe having the occasional laugh or smile.
