I don't know about you, but I'm thinking maybe Would You Read It needs an official snack. Of course, that's probably because I'm always writing it at 6 AM when I haven't had breakfast yet. I might do a poll to see what we should have... suggestions welcome in the comments below so we can make up a good poll :) As you know, I am fond of donuts, but given our health kick this week with the potato exercise, I think we should pick something that can at least pretend to be nutritious. (For example, Froot Loops - which contain the word "fruit" (sort of) and are therefore health food.)
Okay. Seriously. I wish you guys would stop talking about breakfast. We have work to do!
This week's pitch comes to us from Saul in New York, creator of the LinkedIn group New Author's Need Marketing Ideas and owner of SAWEB Books, Inc. You can read his blog here. This book is currently self-published, so help with the pitch might help Saul with sales.
Here is the pitch:
Title: A Lesson My Cat Taught Me
Age/Genre: Early Reader
The Pitch: Can your child learn to accept others for who they are and not what they are from a one-eyed cat? Read the book to find out.
So what do you think? Would You Read It? YES, MAYBE or NO?

If your answer is MAYBE or NO, please feel free to tell us what you think could be better in the spirit of helping Saul improve his 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.)

Saul is looking forward to your thoughts on his pitch!
