Due to all the flurry and excitement and extensive reading involved in the Halloweensie Contest, I’m going to take pity on you today and present nothing but Something Chocolate and Would You Read It.
No amusing anecdotes from my childhood.
No tales of adventure from the wilds of Blueberry Hill.
No witty musings on life.
(Well, okay, I don’t really ever have those :))
Just one thing before you get your snack: if you haven’t had a chance to vote yet for your favorite Halloweensie Contest finalist, you have until 5 PM and we really need all the votes we can get. The top contenders keep being tied. So please go HERE (and encourage your neighbors and your grandmother and your mailman to stop over, read the entries and pick their favorite too!)
Wasn’t that so quick? And now your reward….
Hold onto your dental work…

I LOVE toffee! Truly, I think it is one of the best inventions ever. Help yourselves! Tell me if you agree! 🙂
Now then, today’s pitch comes to us from Maria who says, “I am a pre-published author and roommate of two loving, adorable Pixiebob cats. Recently granted a chance to decide “what I wanted to be when I grew up,” I began actively pursuing my my love of writing (a path on hold for the past ten years, while I raised my kids). I renewed my SCBWI membership, joined Julie Hedlund’s 12×12 forum, and Kid Lit Summer School, took numerous writing courses, found awesome critique groups, and attendeded conferences.”
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Just Like Us
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 2-6)
The Pitch: As children frolic through and around a park playground, glimpses of two bear cubs mimicking their fun can be seen, partially obscured on each page. Both the bears and children roll down a hill, play on the equipment, and dig for treasure. But in the end, who is watching whom.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Maria is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to announcing the Halloweensie Contest winners TOMORROW!!! I know! The excitement! The anticipation! Who will it be?????
Tune in and find out! 🙂
Have a wonderful and toffee-filled Wednesday, everyone!
