Gather round, y’all!
It’s time for everyone’s favorite pitching pastime!
What would Wednesday be without Would You Read It? Just a plain old middle day of the week. Boring. Lackluster. Dull! So sad 😦
But not for us! We’ve got a fabulous new pitch AND Something Chocolate AND each other’s company and the camaraderie of the writing community to enjoy! (Because what would Would You Read It be without chocolate? And what would WE be without each other?! Luckily, we’ll never have to know! 🙂 )
Today our Something Chocolate shall be Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies, because I feel strongly that one should never have to decide between brownies and chocolate chip cookies! That would be like Sophie’s Choice 🙂

YUM! So delicious! And totally healthy of course! As I’m sure you all know, chocolate is a vegetable (it comes from the cocoa BEAN!), and cookie dough most certainly involves protein, calcium, and whole grains because there are eggs and butter and wheat in there somewhere. I feel it’s my hostessly (yes that can be a word if I want it to!) responsibility to make sure you’re all well fortified for your day! 🙂
Today’s pitch comes to us from Kirk, whom you will remember from May with his MG pitch for When Your Best Friend Wants To Be Your Girlfriend And Other Horror Stories. Kirk is the Ringmaster of Kraft Three-Ring Circus which includes his beautiful wife, Patty, four kids aged 6-12 and a silly German Shepherd, Blitz. In all his spare time, not spent managing this circus or working his day job, he writes YA & MG fantasy, picture books and parenting nonfiction. The pitch before you is his first attempt at humorous MG.

Here is his pitch:
Working Title: My Next Door Neighbor Is A Dragon Princess
The Pitch: I didn’t care much for Maddie Buckner. At two, she bit my ear. At four she pushed me off a slide. At 8, she broke my favorite model airplane that took five months to build. At 10, she kissed me – on the lips! – under the Big Toy in the playground and told me she loved me. At 11, she spit in my face and said she hated me. Then she asked Parker Williams to the sock hop. Parker Williams! Oh, how I despised her. But then she had to go and save my life. That’s when I discovered her secret.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?
Kirk is looking forward to your thoughts on his pitch! I am looking forward to getting some work done. I know that sounds insane, but I actually am. I’m feeling behind which makes me anxious, so I want to put things to rights. Therefore, one more Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownie for strength and courage and then it’s nose to the grindstone for me! Unless something diverting comes along… 🙂
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!!! 🙂
