Okay. I guess you can't actually see it, but it really says 4!
In my book, that is just too darn cold! Even Scout, whose preferred location is on the back or side porch
So what better way to warm up then with a cup of hot chocolate, some fresh donuts, and a pitch for Would You Read It? Sounds great to me - I've missed Would You Read It over the holidays!
Before I give you today's pitch, I'd like to mention that there are openings available soon for YOUR pitches. I currently only have about 5 in the queue. So please send some in so we can keep up this fun series, and please spread the word to all your writerly friends! :)
Okay. Today's pitch comes to us from the lovely Abby over at Something To Write About. Some of you may also know her as Leigh Covington (her YA alter-ego.) She writes a fabulous blog which I highly recommend. She has a self-proclaimed addiction to chocolate, which is probably how she found Would You Read It in the first place :) and she lives in Utah. Here is her pitch:
Working Title: What If?
Age/Genre: Early Picture Book (ages 2-5)
The Pitch: Little Lucy has a vivid imagination which shines through all of the "what if" questions she asks about the world around her. With her creative perspective on things, the world holds limitless possibilities for both her and the reader.
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 Abby 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: Remember, Would You Read It is booked only through January, so there are lots of openings ahead. Please send pitches and spread the word :)
Abby is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch!
And don't forget to tune in Friday for Perfect Picture Books and the results of our contest poll (click here to vote if you haven't yet!)!
