Hi everyone, and welcome to Would You Read It Wednesday where each week we help someone out with their pitch, polish our own pitch skills, and indulge in Something Deliciously Chocolate 😊 (Does it get any better than that? 😊)
Before we jump into today’s pitch, I want to mention that, due to my daughter’s wedding, I didn’t quite manage to post the Halloweensie Contest Guidelines for this year on Columbus Day as I usually do – my apologies! But it is entirely possibly (hint hint) that there will be a special post tomorrow and I hope you’ll all check in and get inspired to get down to some spooktacular writing!
To fuel you for such creative endeavors (and to help out with today’s pitch) how about Something Chocolate? Theses French Silk Pie Brownies look mighty scrumptious!

Please feel free to help yourself to as much creative fuel as you need – there’s plenty to go around!😊
Now then, onto today’s pitch which comes to us from Sandy who says, “I’m Sandra McGraw, a retired teacher, grandma, and the writer of Jesus Jingles. Check me out at http://www.jesusjingles.com. “
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Little Blue
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 3-6)
The Pitch: Little Blue is glum. He’s low, low, low which is distressing when you’re a balloon! Little Blue’s buddies display real friendship as they rally around to bolster him when he’s down. Perhaps a bit of flatulence will help Blue float again.
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 Sandy 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!
Sandy is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch! I am looking forward to posting the 10th Annual Halloweensie Contest guidelines tomorrow so you can all get your thinking caps on and start writing! It isn’t October without Halloweensie! 😊
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!!! 😊
