Have you ever tried singing a pitch for your manuscript?

Picture book writer Sue Fliess created a parody version of the song “Cups (When I’m Gone)” from the Pitch Perfect movie soundtrack. Her song claims that when her manuscript’s done, “you’re going to buy it.”

We’ve embedded the full video above–what do you think? Fliess sang the parody herself. Follow this link to see actress Anna Kendrick perform the original song.
