(Which this week, due to Mother Nature’s sense of humor, is taking place on Thursday!)
Hello everyone! I’m so glad to see you all! I feel like I’ve been out of touch for ages. I apologize to all the awesome bloggers I usually follow for missing what I’m sure have been brilliant posts this week. I will do my best to catch up, but there’s nothing like being disconnected from the internet for 4 days to make you realize how fast you can get totally backlogged! And right at the beginning of PiBoIdMo, too!
I’m so behind I don’t know if there’s any hope of catching up, but if you’ll all indulge me (and the wonderful writers who have taken the time to send in their pitches and write stories for the Halloweensie contest) by reading a couple extra posts too close together, I’m hoping to get Would You Read It up today, as well as the proper Halloweensie post, and the Pitch Pick for October up tomorrow, but I’ll be playing catch up for a while.
Before we start, though, I will share a couple pictures of our Halloween Wonderland.
|It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… except for all the leaves… and the fact that it’s October 🙂|
|That thing in the trampoline used to be our apple tree which we planted as a mere sprout when we first moved here 18 years ago 😦|
|Luckily the girls love a good romp in the snow 🙂 This was a shallow spot – I didn’t have the camera out when they were over their backs in the white stuff!|
Okay. That will be quite enough of that! Truly, all this snow is making me feel a little light-headed. I think it’s time for a piping hot cup of coffee (which I can once again brew! :)) and some glazed chocolate Dunkin’ Munchkins! Join me, won’t you?
Now, then. Onward!
Today’s post comes to us from the prolific Christie, whose MG novel was pitched last month. This time she’s sharing a picture book pitch:
Working Title: The Tooth Fairy Star
Age/Genre: Picture Book
The Pitch: Tiffany Faye loves being the tooth fairy, but when all the other fairies complain about her terrible dancing, she has to find a way to dance without being clumsy or else give up her job as the tooth fairy.
