It’s Would You Read It Wednesday!
And it’s the day before The Halloweensie Writing Contest opens!
And it’s only 3 days til Halloween!
Clearly the only way we’re going to be able to concentrate and get anything done is to have Something Chocolate!
(You know, there is always a way to make eating chocolate a rational and wise choice! 😊)
Since it’s Halloweensie and Halloween week, today’s Something Chocolate will be White Chocolate Mummy Truffles!!!
White Chocolate Mummy Truffles
Okay. I know a lot of us feel that white chocolate isn’t real chocolate, only dark and milk chocolate’s poor cousin. But it is technically chocolate, and these mummies are so cute for a Halloween snack that I figured we could excuse white chocolate for being a bit of a wannabe today 😊
Now then, onto today’s pitch which comes to us from Nicole. A school social worker by day and a mama by every other waking moment, Nicole can usually be found laughing with her husband and two toddlers, drinking room temperature coffee, and cramming writing into every spare second.
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Dear Duchess
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-8)
The Pitch: When her octopus stuffie moves to the ocean to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming a mermaid, a young girl is forced to move out of her comfort zone and an octopus learns what is truly important.
