Golly! The summer is just flying along, isn’t it?
I can’t believe it’s half-past July already!
I hope you are all enjoying tons of happy family time, vacationing, beaching, camping and marshmallow roasting… whatever blows your hair back 🙂
I bet you’re all wondering who won the June Pitch Pick, so I won’t keep you in suspense. (And this time I’m serious – I really won’t! We all have pressing things to get back to like lying in hammocks :))
The winner of the June Pitch Pick is MICHELLE with her pitch for The Sunflower Traveler!!! Congratulations, Michelle! Your pitch is winging its way through cyberspace to editor Erin Molta and I’m sure you’ll hear from her soon!
Congratulations to all our other fabulous pitchers, too! You all did a fantastic job. The choice was SO tough! I hope at the very least everyone feels they got some helpful feedback from all our generous readers!
And now, I feel the need for Something Chocolate! How about you? Due to this heat wave, I’ve got cold things on the brain, so I think we’ll go with a Frozen Brownie Sundae… er, Wednesdae?! Sound good?

Today’s pitch comes to us from Kirsten who says, “I am a children’s writer, a mother of three active preschoolers, a lover of all things salty and fattening, and an avid avoider of cleaning. I have been writing seriously for about 4 years. I LOVE the supportive writing community that I have found and I love my supportive hubby who looks past the piling masses of dirty laundry and asks me how my book is going.”
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Sourpuss: Stuck In The Muck
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-8)
The Pitch: Sourpuss is a cat that loves bubble baths, kitty facials, and manicures. When he comes whisker to whisker with a mangy mutt named Sunny, Sourpuss is desperate to remain pristine. Then Sunny gets stuck in the muck and it looks like Sourpuss is her only hope…if he is able to brave the sticky mud.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Kirsten is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to that Sundae… even though it’s Wednesdae 🙂
Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone!!! 🙂
