Hey there, Everyone!
Here we are at Would You Read It Wednesday again!
And this week we have a pitch! Hurray!!! 😊
You guys certainly stepped up to the call for pitches last week! I think (because of having to skip a week here and there for the upcoming writing contests and the holidays) that we are now scheduled through January 13. But keep working on those pitches and sending them along!!!
No doubt Something Chocolate will help you write your own pitches and think up helpful things to say about today’s pitch, so let’s not waste any more time, shall we? I’m thinking nothing says breakfast like Chocolate Chip Caramel Bars! What are your thoughts? 😊
Chocolate Chip Caramel Bars
I mean, just look at the yumminess! CLEARLY those are good for you! 😊
Now then, onto today’s pitch which comes to us from Eileen who says, “For the last 28 years, I’ve run a preschool and daycare. Recently because of Covid, I’ve suspended my business and now teach remote learning art classes to our school district’s autism classes. You can follow me on Twitter: Eileen Mayo @Kidfunideas . I also have a website with free crafts, games, jokes, and recipes for kids at: http://www.Kidfunideas.com “
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Tree Monster Tea Party
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-8)
The Pitch: With the BFF tea party any minute, a broken chair could mean disaster! Never fear, good-natured Bear is off to the rescue until he trips, and gets his head stuck a log! As more forest friends stop to help, the problem grows and grows to epic proportions! In this action-packed cumulative comedy, the kooky cast of characters learn that teamwork makes the dream work and, there’s more than one way to solve a problem.
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 Eileen 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 January, so you have time to polish your pitch before putting it up for helpful feedback and a chance to have it read and commented on by editor Erin Molta!
Eileen is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to taking these two for a little hike.
They have been waiting (one patiently, one not so much 😊) so if I value the mostly un-dug-up state of my lawn I’d best get a move on 😊
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!!! 😊
