Happy Wednesday, my friends!
I can’t believe it. This guy
is getting married!
Where does the time go?!
So I’m running around like a lunatic and will not take up your time with amusing anecdotes from my childhood or unnecessary ramblings about nature on Blueberry Hill. Let’s get right to Something Chocolate, shall we? I’m thinking Chocolate Wedding Cake… 🙂
What could be more delicious?! 🙂
Now then, onto today’s pitch which comes to us from Patricia who is a wife, mother to Two Orange Pups and 3 grown kids, & a pre-published author. I’ve wandered much of my adult life, logging over 20 moves in the past 30 years – there’s a “how to” story lurking somewhere! I review Perfect Picture Books, primarily international ones, at Wander, Ponder, Write.
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Sadie’s Tail
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-8)
The Pitch: Ryan and his rescue-pup Sadie are the perfect pair, except for one thing. Whenever Ryan tries to brush her fluffy tail, Sadie growls, howls and otherwise avoids the brushing. As Sadie’s tail changes from fluffy to puffy and household items go missing, Ryan must discover a solution to tame that tail.

Patricia is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to going to the wedding!!!
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!!! 🙂
(And I’m forewarning you, I don’t think I’m going to manage Perfect Picture Books this week because I’ll be in sunny Brazil, good lord willing and the creek don’t rise! 🙂 )
