Well, folks, I don’t want to brag, but I think it’s fair to say I took holding stuff to a whole new level at the video shoot on Monday.
I held a light AND a dimmer switch AT THE SAME TIME!
It boggles the mind.
Next time I say I can’t multi-task, please remind me of my obvious talent in that area. I know it will be a great comfort to me 🙂
Speaking of talent (like how smoothly I segued?) it is my pleasure to announce the winner of the December/January Pitch Pick!
And the winner is…
BETH!!! with her pitch for Tomboy Rules: Blossoms Are Always Prepared!
Congratulations on a wonderful pitch, Beth! It is already in editor Erin Molta’s inbox, so I’m sure you will hear from her shortly 🙂
And congratulations as well to our other 4 pitchers – Rena, Joy, Kirsten, and Stacy – for their terrific pitches! Great work, everyone!
I’m feeling a little calorically depleted after all that cheering, and I think we all know the best way to deal with that… 🙂 Something Chocolate, anyone?
Even though it’s morning here, somewhere in the world it’s later than that, so today our Something Chocolate shall be chocolate soup – perfect for any meal… or snack…! 🙂

Today’s pitch comes to us from Julie G. With her background in pediatric nursing, Julie Anne Grasso spent many years literally wrapping children in cotton wool. Every day she witnessed great resilience from the tiny people she cared for, which inspired her to write stories about a little girl elf just like them in The Adventures of Caramel Cardamom Trilogy. After participating in Tara Lazar’s PiBoIdMo in 2013, Julie has been furiously developing her picture book manuscripts. She lives in Melbourne Australia with her husband Danny and their little elf Giselle.
You can find her around the web at:
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Diary Of A Slinky Kid
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 3-6)
The Pitch: Herman wishes he was just like everyone else, but as his mum points out, “There’s no escaping your genes.” Sure, he has the right number of fingers and toes, but when all the other kids are gazing at their belly buttons during gym class, Herman is hiding his coil shaped middle section under his t shirt.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Julie is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to telling you that coincidentally I am a guest on Julie’s blog today. And look at that! I just told you! So there wasn’t a very long build up of anticipation. But I hope you will have a build up of anticipation between right now this very second and when you click over to Julie’s blog to visit and say hi and see what tomfoolery we are up to over there! 🙂
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone! 🙂
