The results are in! Although the showing was a little disappointing (a mere 13 votes when I had hoped for more like 100 to make it really official) the clear winner in the Would You Read It Official Snack Poll was Something Chocolate. Since, technically, chocolate donuts qualify for this category, I am happy 🙂 I’m pretty sure you Something Cereal folks can eat Count Chocula, and the Something Salty folks can eat their Pringles with chocolate milk (OK, yuck, but you get my meaning :)) With a little ingenuity, anything can qualify as Something Chocolate!
Now, just quickly before we get to this week’s pitch, I have to show you something fun that our friend, Jenny, posted on my FB wall yesterday:
Raise your hand if you want this in your writing space 🙂 I totally do! (Although they forgot “tear your hair out in frustration!” 🙂
Okay! Are you ready for the pitch? Here it comes!
TITLE: Listen to Me
GENRE: YA Contemporary with a dash of Magical Realism (target age
13-17, but I hope for crossover appeal)
PITCH: Stacy can talk to herself-in-twelve-years - but will the
impossible relationship with Older Me help her navigate the high
school rites of bullying and unrequited love, or just fuel her
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
