Yes, Cheetos are a healthy breakfast! (they have cheese, which is dairy, duh! Just make sure you wipe your fingers before you touch your computer or you'll get that orange dust everywhere...)
And no, first thing in the morning is not too early for the recliner! (after you're done with Would You Read It you will be perfectly positioned to enjoy all those other morning game shows! Besides, you can't really enjoy Cheetos properly on the exercise bike.)
So now, are you ready?
I hope so, because here comes today's pitch *sounds of cheering and wild excitement*
Today's pitch comes to us from Laynie, a children's author from Texas. She is writing a series about Moochie Mockingbird and this title is to be the second in the series. (For you fellow campaigners out there, Laynie is also taking part in Rachael Harrie's Writer's Platform Building Campaign so head on out and look her up!)
Title: Hidden Oaks Camp Or Else!
The Pitch: Moochie Mockingbird and other animal friends lead endangered animals away from a huge, deadly Texas Hill Country wildfire to the safety of 'firewise community' Hidden Oaks, a summer youth camp.
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 Laynie 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. (I figured y'all would get tired of me rewriting the same paragraph every week about the rules of the game so I put them up there :))
Laynie is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch!
And once Laynie's pitch has had a couple days to be evaluated, I will put up the official poll so you can all vote on whose pitch should be sent to Erin! Really, the excitement is practically unbearable! Where are my Cheetos? :)
