You don’t have to tell me.
I know my blog has gone to the dogs this week 🙂 Skipping regular posting days – quel horror! 🙂 And (I realize this borders on treason) no chocolate today because I don’t have any.
But that’s because I’m here…
|yes, that is Princess Blue Kitty herself! 🙂|
…among the beach plum blossoms….
…with the likes of this little guy in the front yard…
… and my crew of miscreants :)…
…technically on vacation and hanging out with the fam. (Which means limited work time, so I apologize for any disruption you may be experiencing. One person reported having to resort to a calendar without my blog posts to remind them what day it was – so very sorry! – things will be back to normal soon :))
Meanwhile, so that you won’t have too much blog withdrawal, we have a regular WYRI Wednesday starting with Straight From The Editor for the May Pitch Winner.
You will remember that Sian won the May Pitch Pick with this pitch for Thirsty For Words (PB ages 4-8):
Benedict the Vampire likes nothing more than snacking on a tasty noun. He’s on a rampage, gobbling up ‘words, whispers, songs and shouts’ until the city is silent. Who can stop him? Something furry lurking in the sewer could have the answer….
Here are editor Erin Molta’s comments:
Working Title: Granola Bars For Dinner
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 3-7)
The Pitch: Quentin is a kid who loves granola bars and wishes he could eat them all the time, even for dinner! But when Quentin discovers he is tired of all the regular granola bars at the store, he decides there is just one thing to do: make a new kind of granola bar. A kid-friendly recipe (for pizza granola bars) will be included.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Alicia is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to the 4th of July Secret Mystery Writing Contest which will be starting on Monday!!! So exciting! I hope I get an idea and write my sample by then 🙂 and I can’t wait to read all of yours! In case you somehow missed the details and would like to join the fun for a chance at fabulous prizes, hop over HERE and check it out!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone!!! 🙂
