HINT For Beth’s Birthday Hunt Clue #11
ths s hnt
this is a hint
If you still don’t get it, email me 🙂
Well, folks, I’m sorry to report that there’s still no news from the Editor, and today I can’t dawdle because I won’t be able to post later. So Straight From The Editor will have to wait for Friday – which looks like it’s going to be totally action-packed because I have SO much to share then. But we’ll get to that in a second 🙂
Before I forget, for those of you who might not have seen it, the wonderful Abby from Something To Write About had me as a guest on her blog yesterday. Please pop over if you’d like to read the interview (or just to show Abby some bloggy love)!
And check out this excitement! Beer Is Zo Moe! (my Dutch book which, for our English-speaking audience (I’m assuming that’s most of us) is Bear Is So Tired!) made an appearance at the Antwerp Book Fair in Belgium! Look at it, up there with all those other books, so famous 🙂 I’m going to go out on a limb and guess “kinderboeken” means “kids’ books” but you’ve got me on “jeugdboeken” – some other kind of book is as close as I can get!
What? You can’t see it? How about if I zoom in a little 🙂
Ah, that’s better. And look how much more pronounceable of a title it has than some of those others 🙂
Also, Nicole made a coloring page to go along with it. Want to see?
Isn’t it cute?
Okay. Enough of that. Go get your coffee/tea/hot chocolate/steamer/mulled cider or whatever you’re imbibing this morning and your Something Chocolate (it is Wednesday!) – I’ve got a lovely pan of freshly baked brownies on my kitchen counter for my daughter’s study group this evening – they probably won’t notice if one’s missing – and I think a brownie would make an excellent breakfast 🙂 – but I digress. Get your snack and settle in. It’s time for Would You Read It!
Today’s pitch comes to us from Vicki, a French teacher who can count to 10 in 7 languages and has forgotten how in 3 others 🙂 She writes MG and YA fiction and blogs at All The World’s In Words. Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Finding Sophie
The Pitch: When Sophie is forced backward in time to 1895 Paris, she takes the identity of a missing Jewish girl and falls for a young Zionist. As the window home closes, Sophie must decide whether to unlock a mysterious heirloom’s secrets and return to her own life of a potential prima ballerina, or live as someone else in the past and lose herself forever.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Please join us on Friday for Perfect Picture Books, AND (pretend this is flashing neon!) something SO EXCITING it’s going to knock your socks right off! I wish I could show you now, but it’s not quite ready, and it has to be perfect, so you’re just going to have to wait until Friday!
I can’t wait to share it! 🙂
