... google Mr. Morse for the rest :)
I know. The holidays are approaching. There are decorations to hang, guest rooms to freshen, meals to plan, travel arrangements to make, gifts to buy, the mall to survive, and your mother-in-law to avoid. It can be a bit stressful. Which is why you guys are totally going to love me. I have solved ALL your shopping dilemmas. Seriously! I have the answer to everything. Ready?
Your Shopping Dilemmas Solved!
Take your time. I'll wait while you read it. It's so funny, and so TRUE! When you're done, be sure to tell me which is your favorite (and I apologize to Beth who saw this on my Face Book page yesterday - it was too fun not to share here, too!)
Then, when you're done with that list, buy books. See? I've just done all your shopping for you! You can thank me by sending large quantities of chocolate anything to Blueberry Hill :)
Now that you can breathe a sigh of relief because I've done your shopping, it's time to reveal the winner of the November Pitch Pick! Who will it be? Yikes! The anticipation is just killing me!
This month's race was the closest one yet. The contestants were neck and neck. First one looked like the winner, then another pulled ahead. Very exciting!
So exciting that perhaps we should calm ourselves down by discussing my mother-in-law's bunions...
(I wouldn't really subject anyone to that!)
The winner of the November Pitch Pick, whose Pitch is flying through cyberspace to Erin Molta as we speak, is none other than the amazing DEE!!! Congratulations, Dee! I hope Erin will have lots of helpful things to say!
Now then. It's time for everybody's favorite show, Would You Read It! Today's participant is the lovely Christie from Write Wild. (BTW, for all you picture book writers, Christie's blog is terrific!) Christie, come on down!
Working Title: Draggin' My Tail
The Pitch: Orville the dragon loves to fly, but when he quits breathing fire, his wings fail him. Orville has to figure out how to get his fire back so he can lift off 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 Christie 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 the Would You Read It tab in the bar above. SIDE NOTE: Would You Read It is booked only through January, so there are lots of openings ahead. Please send pitches and spread the word to your writerly friends :)
Christie is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch!
Please join us Friday for Perfect Picture Books, and I hope everyone is hard at work on their Holiday Contest entries! Congratulations again to Dee, and don't forget to let us know which of those gifts is your favorite :)
