Hey there, everyone!
Hope you’re all having a lovely week so far!
Since it’s Would You Read It Wednesday, I have something fun to share that I hope you will read! (There should be a rhyme about that… maybe something like how many books would a woodchuck… uh, well, actually maybe not that 🙂 Devouring books is fine, but not necessarily the way a woodchuck might 🙂 )
I am fortunate to have many friends who are talented writers and illustrators, and I always love to share their books. If you’re looking for something great and hot off the presses, check out these two titles released in the past week!
Congratulations to Iza and Della on their newest books! (and don’t miss their previous titles! 🙂 )
Now that we’ve got some good new books to read, let’s cozy up with Something Chocolate – a breakfast treat I’m sure we can all agree is totally healthy and delicious for myriad reasons – Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies.

Not only is this Something Chocolate totally yummy, I got to use the word myriad and it’s always a good day when you can work that in! 🙂
Now then, onto today’s pitch which comes to us from Kim who says, “I’m blessed to be pursuing my dream of writing full-time after a career in mortgage lending. I have two grown boys but no grandkids to read my stories to yet.”
Find her on the web at
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: P. I. Goat And The Case Of The Missing Bone
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-8)
The Pitch: P.I.Goat gets his first case when Puddles, a puppy, hires him to find Paw-Paw’s bone. Nearsighted Paw-Paw thinks Goat is a pig, but Goat has a worse problem: he faints when startled! Despite the lack of help from a cast of wacky farm animals, Goat unravels the startling truth behind the Case of the Missing Bone. He also discovers that being a P.I. is not for the faint of heart—KLUNK!
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 Kim 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 could get your pitch up pretty soon for helpful feedback and a chance to have it read and commented on by editor Erin Molta!
Kim is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to seeing my new book which is due out in a couple weeks and which I am hoping will show up on my porch one of these days VERY SOON! (Not that I’m impatient, mind you. Not me! I’m a model of calm and decorous waiting 🙂 )
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!!! 🙂
