How are you all? I feel like I haven’t seen you in ages! This is what skipping blog days does to me – I miss you!
So let’s see… What have I done in the past week?
I went to Vermont… I signed books at the Millbrook Literary Festival where I got to say hi to some of my good friends (hi Iza, Nancy, Karen, Pat, Tim, Brian, Scott, Alison, etc. :)) and made a new one (hi Helen!)… I hopped over to the end of the Children’s Nonfiction Conference in New Paltz and got to meet Kirsten and Sue in real life!!! – such fun!!! – and they are as nice and smart and beautiful in real life as they are online :)… and I drove to Boston and fetched #4 for the summer 🙂 Probably some other stuff too, but that’s all I can think of right now 🙂 Clearly my brain is in need of some type of nudge…
Gee, I wonder what would do the trick?
Perhaps… Something Chocolate! 🙂

Please! Help yourselves!
Now that our mouths are full, let’s turn our attention to Would You Read It 🙂
Today’s pitch comes to us from Stacey who says, “I’m a pre-published picture book author and momma of two adorable boys who give me every ounce of writing material I need. When I’m not reading to, writing for, or raising kids, I’m usually collaborating with my writer’s critique group, attending local SCBWI events, or eating chocolate. I’m amazed by the talent out there and happy to be just a small part of it.”

Here is her pitch:
Working Title: The Bad Guys Breakfast
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 3-7)
The Pitch: “It was just like any other morning, except a monster was sitting at my kitchen table.”
Adeline K. Strauss has a problem with monsters in her house. Could there be a way to win over these “bad guys”? In The Bad Guys Breakfast, Addie discovers the way to a monster’s heart might just be through his (or her) stomach. So, she invites them for breakfast. But when a witch, ghost, shark, and bear (…and maybe more) show up at her doorstep ready to eat, things can go only one of two ways.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Stacey is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to trying out that Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake recipe! 🙂 Oh, and I’m also looking forward to attending the NJ SCBWI conference this weekend! I’ve never been before, but I’ve heard tell it’s awesome, and I think quite a few people I’m anxious to meet in real life are going to be there. Anyone going? Let me know in the comments!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone! See you next week! 🙂
