Now, just quickly before we get to this week's pitch, I have to show you something fun that our friend, Jenny, posted on my FB wall yesterday:
Okay! Are you ready for the pitch? Here it comes!
Basking in today's Would You Read It spotlight is Aimee, a Portland, Oregon girl currently living in New Zealand. She has a great blog at Seeking The Write Life. Here is her pitch:
TITLE: Listen to Me
GENRE: YA Contemporary with a dash of Magical Realism (target age 13-17, but I hope for crossover appeal)
PITCH: Stacy can talk to herself-in-twelve-years - but will the impossible relationship with Older Me help her navigate the high school rites of bullying and unrequited love, or just fuel her destructive self-loathing?
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 Aimee 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.)
Aimee is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch!
And I am looking forward to a chocolate-covered chocolate donut with a glass of chocolate milk :)
