Hello everyone! I'm so glad to see you all! I feel like I've been out of touch for ages. I apologize to all the awesome bloggers I usually follow for missing what I'm sure have been brilliant posts this week. I will do my best to catch up, but there's nothing like being disconnected from the internet for 4 days to make you realize how fast you can get totally backlogged! And right at the beginning of PiBoIdMo, too!
I'm so behind I don't know if there's any hope of catching up, but if you'll all indulge me (and the wonderful writers who have taken the time to send in their pitches and write stories for the Halloweensie contest) by reading a couple extra posts too close together, I'm hoping to get Would You Read It up today, as well as the proper Halloweensie post, and the Pitch Pick for October up tomorrow, but I'll be playing catch up for a while.
Before we start, though, I will share a couple pictures of our Halloween Wonderland.
|It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... except for all the leaves... and the fact that it's October :)|
|That thing in the trampoline used to be our apple tree which we planted as a mere sprout when we first moved here 18 years ago :(|
|Luckily the girls love a good romp in the snow :) This was a shallow spot - I didn't have the camera out when they were over their backs in the white stuff!|
Now, then. Onward!
Today's post comes to us from the prolific Christie, whose MG novel was pitched last month. This time she's sharing a picture book pitch:
Working Title: The Tooth Fairy Star
Age/Genre: Picture Book
The Pitch: Tiffany Faye loves being the tooth fairy, but when all the other fairies complain about her terrible dancing, she has to find a way to dance without being clumsy or else give up her job as the tooth fairy.
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.)
Christie is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch!
Please be kind enough to check back and read the Halloweensie Contest post which I will get up ASAP for all the wonderful writers who posted stories! Thank you all for your patience and good will :)
