So guess what? It’s National Cookie Day!
Therefore I believe it is our duty to jump straight to Something Chocolate without a moment’s delay!
Today we’re going super healthy with vegan cookies. For those of you who may not know, vegan is a word that means “made out of air” because that is all that is left to make things out of when you take out wheat, eggs, milk, butter, and all the other usual ingredients involved in baking – hence, super healthy! 🙂
Vegan Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
Mmmm! There’s nothing like confectioners sugar to melt on your tongue – like snow but sweeter 🙂
Now then, onto today’s pitch which comes to us from Sarah whose mother shared a special bedtime wish, and Sarah didn’t realize until she was older, that everyone’s bedtime wish wasn’t the same. While her vivid imagination prevents her from always getting a great night’s sleep, she also uses it to hear her mother send her off to sleep. Sarah is an active member of SCBWI, 12 x 12, and Storyteller Academy.

Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Lilly’s Get A Great Night Sleep Book: Trust Me! It Works!
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-8)
The Pitch: Lilly had a hard time sleeping. Maybe it was all the TV, the lack of bedtime snacks, or her wild imagination, but she finally figured out the (sort-of) perfect pre-sleep routine. Now she wants YOU to get a great night sleep too! In her made-for-TV style, Lilly shares her seven step method including bedtime buddies and a just right way to say good night.
