Perfect for a July summer day! ūüôā

Today’s pitch comes to us from Lavanya whom you will remember from last July with her pitch for Sophie vs. The Monster and her pitch last month for The Sun, The Moon And Eve. ¬†She says,¬†“I’m a software¬†engineer by day, and an avid reader of fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and literature by night.¬†I’m also mother to¬†a young¬†girl who has just discovered the magical ability to¬†make meaning out of the printed word. I started putting my own words down on paper last November, and when I¬†went to my regional SCBWI conference¬†in April,¬†I confirmed a suspicion that I had long harbored – writers are the nicest people in the world, and I want to be one of them. :-)”

Here is her pitch:

Working Title: How I Made My Baby
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-8)
The Pitch: The thing about making a baby sister is, you have to be patient. First, you have to be patient until Mom and Dad realize you have the best idea. Then, you have to be patient for the baby to come out. But hardest of all is being patient while the baby grows big enough to play with you.

So what do you think?  Would You Read It?  YES, MAYBE or NO?

If your answer is YES, please feel free to tell us what you particularly liked and why the pitch piqued your interest.  If your answer is MAYBE or NO, please feel free to tell us what you think could be better in the spirit of helping Lavanya improve her pitch.  Helpful examples of possible alternate wordings are welcome.  (However, I must ask that comments be constructive and respectful.  I reserve the right not to publish comments that are mean because that is not what this is about.)
Please send YOUR pitches for the coming weeks! ¬†For rules and where to submit, click on this link¬†Would You Read It¬†or on the Would You Read It tab in the bar above. ¬†There are openings in November so you’ve got a little time to polish up your pitches and send yours for your chance to be read by editor Erin Molta!

Lavanya is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! ¬†I am looking forward to seeing who will win the Illustration Contest!!! ¬†(And one more time if you didn’t get to vote yet… ūüôā¬†http://susannahill.blogspot.com/2015/06/illustration-contest-for-childrens.html)

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!!! ūüôā
