Happy Wednesday, Everyone!
Can you believe August is almost upon us? How did THAT happen???!!!
August is traditionally the month I take a blogcation, which means today will be our last meeting until Wednesday September 7 when we return with Would You Read It and the June and July Pitch Picks – it will be a big day!!! 🙂
For now, though, let’s celebrate the almost beginning of our August vacation with Something Chocolate. How does gooey, delicious, warm Chocolate Chip Pie sound? With a scoop of vanilla ice cream for
extra deliciousness calcium and protein? 🙂
Chocolate Chip Pie
The good thing about warm, gooey, deliciousness? No crumbs in your keyboard 🙂
Now then, onto today’s pitch which comes to us from Amy. Born and raised in Louisville, KY, Amy has earned two degrees in English and an MFA in Creative Nonfiction. Naturally, she writes picture books. She tests her picture book ideas on her two kids (ages 9 and 12) and her kid-like husband (age 47). Sometimes her two dogs offer their opinions. She’s really looking forward to your reader’s opinions, too!
Find her on the web at:
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Grizzie Moon Does NOT Like Cats!
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 3-7)
The Pitch: When Bob the cat destroys Grizzie Moon’s extraordinary ghoul stew, he must find a way to save the recipe and win the favor of this persnickety witch before her Stitch and Witch Club arrives.
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 Amy 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 Would You Read It in the dropdown under For Writers in the bar above. There are openings in October, so you have a little time to polish your pitch before putting it up for helpful feedback and have a chance to have it read by editor Erin Molta!
Amy is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to spending the next couple weeks visiting with my sister and her family who are here from Georgia, and hopefully, maybe, working on some projects that I haven’t had enough time to finish up!
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!!! And a wonderful, relaxing, enjoyable August!!! See you after Labor Day 🙂
