Well, dearies, you’re about to get the most unembellished Would You Read It post ever!
That is because yesterday I had to drive to Boston… normally a 7 hour round trip, but what with Thanksgiving traffic and the fact that lots of people were traveling early due to the storm we’re getting today, it took closer to 12.
By the time I got home, it was 11:20 PM, and I still had to write today’s post…
But the important stuff is here 🙂
The winner of the October Pitch Pick was Michelle, with her PB pitch for Zoo Rules! Congratulations, Michelle, well done! Your pitch is on its way to editor Erin Molta, and I’m sure you’ll hear from her soon.
And congratulations to our other brave pitchers as well! Everyone did such a great job, and you are all winners just for writing and polishing your pitches and putting them out there for people to comment on!
Even in my zombie I’ve-been-driving-a-car-non-stop-for-nearly-12-hours stupor, I would not forget your Something Chocolate! I think it should be something Thanksgiving-y, don’t you? In the spirit of giving, I offer you a choice of
But anyway you gobble it, a chocolate turkey is delicious 🙂
Now then, today’s pitch comes to us from Jean, who says, “I am a critical care nurse by day, and aspiring writer on my days off. I write a nursing blog at nightingalechronicles.com, and have been published at inthepowderroom.com, but I have always had a love of children’s stories. I am a mother of three children ages 11, 9, and 7. I look forward to submitting my pitch; this will be my first time putting my children’s work out there.”
I’d like to add a quick note that Jean’s schedule caused her to be on duty for her Would You Read It day, so please know that she will be reading your comments as soon as she can, and responding when she can, but it will probably take her a couple days. She is very grateful for your help!
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Got Your Nose
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-8)
The Pitch: Who doesn’t love the game ‘Got Your Nose’? Jack doesn’t, that’s for sure; well, not anymore. You see, Jack loved playing ‘Got Your Nose’ with his mom, but when bedtime came Jack wasn’t ready to quit. Instead, Jack decided to see if he could play with his sleeping brother’s nose by stealing it right off of his face. But when Jack heard the sounds of approaching footsteps he nervously tossed his brother’s nose sending it flying on a harrowing adventure that’ll be bound to make you hold your breath, and your nose a little tighter.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Jean is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to spending tomorrow with family! AND I can say with truthfulness that it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… since our trusty local weather predictors are forecasting 8-12 inches of snow for us today!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone, and I hope you all have safe travels (if you’re traveling), and wonderful, happy, healthy, brimming with fun and family Thanksgivings (if you’re celebrating)!!! 🙂
