Who Will It Be? – Pitch Pick #2!

Good Morning, Everyone 🙂  As I hope you have all figured out by now, Mondays are all kinds of fun around here!  In case you were feeling just a little bit blah at the prospect of a new work week beginning, let me pass you the chocolate donuts (this is technically – technically –  part of the Would You Read It series, so Something Chocolate is called for)

Ahhh!  That’s better!  Nothing like a little pick-me-up 🙂
And that’s only the beginning, my friends!  Lest it may have gotten lost in the Monday morning brain fog, let me remind you that it’s time for Pitch Pick #2 for September!
Gosh!  Are you OK?  I didn’t mean to make you fall out of your chair with excitement!  Steady now 🙂
Okay.  Bite of donut.  Sip of coffee.  And let’s review this month’s contenders:
1.  Kimberly
Working Title:  Surfacing In Clouds
Age/Genre:  YA
The Pitch:  Rigo and Esteban struggle to survive in a land without electricity, but when they set out to reach a world consumed by technology their friendship is ripped at the seams. This story chronicles the remarkable resilience of human nature in the face of losing what was once taken for granted: silence, privacy, and a connection with nature.

2.  Saul

Title:  A Lesson My Cat Taught Me
Age/Genre:  Early Reader
The Pitch:  Can your child learn to accept others for who they are and not what they are from a one-eyed cat?  Read the book to find out.
3.  Catherine

Working Title:  The Fairy Wood
Age/Genre:  MG
The Pitch:  Annabel gets distracted by flowers and fairies and cannot find her family in the woods, but the mystery of the disappearing flowers distracts her even more.  Annabel has no idea how close her family really are or who to trust.
4.  Aimee

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 destructive self-loathing?

So.  Who do you think it should be?  Which of our 4 awesome pitchers deserves to have her/his pitch sent to editor Erin Molta for her invaluable critique?
On your mark… Get set… VOTE!!!!!

In the interest of keeping things moving along, the polls will close at 11:59 PM (EST or EDT here we go with that again!) Thursday October 6, so that the winner can be announced Friday October 7.  Please get your votes in ASAP!
This is so exciting!  I love announcing winners!
And don’t forget to come back Wednesday for Carla, our first Would You Read It contender for October!

    Randy – I'm so glad you're enjoying it! I'm waiting for a post from you 🙂

    Kim – you can dunk it in your nightly bowl of cereal 🙂

    Stina – all you need to burn off that virtual donut is some virtual exercise. Run, bike, swim, step aerobics, weight lifting, soccer, frisbee, and vacuum! There – now the chocolate goodies are all burned off and your rugs are clean 🙂

  2. Susanna Leonard Hill says:

    Abby – I can't wait to see either! You have no idea how close a race it is!

    Andrea – so glad you're enjoying the pitch contests. I'm sorry yours didn't win last time 😦 Maybe you should send another 🙂
