It’s time for everybody’s favorite program – Would You Read It! – brought to you in part by Chocolate (it’s what’s for breakfast!)
Except today, since it’s October, our Something Chocolate is going to be Something Pumpkin because I’ve got pumpkins on my mind. So how about this? Hot from the oven pumpkin muffins…
…with chocolate chips 🙂
Now, even though it is rude to speak with your mouth full, I’m going to announce the winner of the September Pitch Pick. And the winner is…
Kirsti, with her pitch for Upside Down In Frown Town!
Congratulations on an excellent pitch, Kirsti! It has already zipped through cyberspace to editor Erin Molta and I’m sure you will hear from her shortly!
Congratulations to our other pitchers as well! Everyone did such a good job – it was a tough choice this month! Good luck to you all as you proceed with the stories these pitches are for!
Help yourself to another muffin, and then we’ll move right along to today’s pitch which comes to us from Rosi. Rosi has sold a few pieces to Highlights and Highlights High Five magazine, but no books yet. She writes for all ages, but mostly for children. She is the Critique Group Coordinator for SCBWI North/Central California. And she would love it if anyone would like to visit her blog at: http://rosihollinbeckthewritestuff.blogspot.com/
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Iris The Rainbow Girl
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 2-5)
The Pitch: When Iris sees a rainbow, she decides she want to be a beautiful rainbow. Her parents tell her all the reasons she cannot be a rainbow, but Iris persists and finally finds a way to achieve her goal.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Rosi is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to figuring out the rest of the prizes for the Halloweensie Contest. Stay tuned! And once again, if you have any particular thoughts in the what-you’d-like-to-win department, please let me know and I’ll see what I can arrange 🙂
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
