Happy OCTOBER everyone!
Holy smoke! How did we get to October already? The days are just flying by! (some might say like a witch on a broomstick!)
And you know what October means, right? Look for some exciting news on Monday!!! 🙂
Meanwhile, it’s time for the September Pitch Pick!
Here are the wonderful September pitches for you to choose from, revised and improved thanks to your generous feedback!:
#1 Hope – Cleo And Pinkie (PB ages 4-8)
Whether it is marker stains on the carpet or mud trails in the hall, Cleo blames her mischievous, imaginary friend, Pinkie, for everything. “Pinkie did it!” Soon Mommy can’t take it anymore and declares, “No more Pinkie!” But without Pinkie, the house is too quiet until Cleo makes another mess, this time, to everyone’s delight.
#2 Koren/Sue – Taffeta: Diary Of A Supermodel (PB ages 6-13)
#3 Carol – Cwabby Wabby Woofen-snoof (PB ages 4-7)
Woofen-snoof was a happy snoof. Then one day she forgot to take her nap. She was cwabby. After causing a disaster in her house involving her brothers, Goofen and Zoofen, she decided she would never be cwabby again. And she wasn’t. That is, until the next time she forgot to take her nap. Uh-oh!
It’s a tough choice as always, I know!, but please choose the one you feel most deserves a read by editor Erin Molta and vote for it in the poll below by Sunday October 5 at 5 PM EDT. I will announce the winner on WYRI next week!
Is there anything better than fresh cider donuts and hot chocolate? I think not! 🙂
All right! Ready for today’s pitch?
It comes to us from Tonia who says, “I have been writing children’s stories since I could make words with a pen. I locked myself in my room and wrote and wrote. I now write for kids in my spare time and sharing and engaging them in stories. I blog at www.storytellertellsall.com. Most of the time, it is about my daughter “Goldi” who has autism but I mix in other writings as well.”
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Eat At Antonio’s
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 8+)
The Pitch: A strange looking restaurant pops up in a small ho hum farm town offering fine cuisine. A real stir is created as these plain Jane folks can’t swallow much more than meat and potatoes and common sense. The Grand Opening announces a real eating adventure. Once inside, Master Chef Antonio will transform the taste buds that will take them to exotic places with just one bite.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Tonia is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to sharing exciting things on Monday! I wonder what I’ll be telling you? Aren’t you just itching to find out? You’re probably going to have a tough time sleeping or getting anything productive done for the next few days, what with all the waiting and wondering… Sorry about that 🙂
Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone!!! 🙂
