You will not believe this, but I almost missed the fact that Friday is National Donut Day!
Thank goodness I found out in time to celebrate! (Where would I be without the helpful Dunkin’ Donuts commercials on my car radio?)
In honor of the fact that Friday is National Donut Day (but today is our Something Chocolate day) let’s have some delectable Boston Creme Chocolate donuts this morning. As a kind of a warm-up for Friday 🙂
Yummyummyum!!! ‘Sheverymnone mreadymmfor mwouldmyoureadit numnum?
Sorry! I know it’s rude to talk with your mouth full but I couldn’t help myself 🙂 Is everyone ready for Would You Read It?
Today’s pitch comes to us from Andrea, who was actually our very first pitcher for Would You Read It way back on July 27, 2011 with a MG pitch for Wild (Girl) Genius! Isn’t that amazing? When she’s not working on her middle grade novels, Andrea is inescapably drawn to writing picture books, possibly because of all the wonderful ideas and questions she hears in her job as a Kindergarten teacher. She has written many stories and articles for educational publishers and blogs about writing over at That’s Another Story (www.andrea-mack.blogspot.com) and with her writing group the MiG Writers (www.migwriters.com). She recently joined Twitter (@ AndreaL_Mack) and would love to connect with other writers.
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: The Backpack Secret
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-7)
The Pitch: When Amani starts school and notices that one of her classmates won’t take off his backpack, she’s determined to find out why. After she finally convinces Mason to open up, Amani has an idea that will help the entire class feel better about coming to school.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Andrea is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to another donut… or two 🙂
Ooh!!! And I’m looking forward to something else too! I am running a writing contest the first week of July (details and official announcement coming next week!) and boy oh boy is there a good prize for the winner!!! I’m looking forward to sharing all the details with you! 🙂
Have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
