Want to know why?
Because today's post is SHORT! You will probably think you're on the wrong blog, it's so short!
This is for two reasons: first, I know the last 2 posts were LOONNGG! and I appreciate you reading all the way through them. There was no real way to shorten them except to do them in halves, and I felt they flowed better in one piece. Also, I would have had to post every day to fit them all in that way! Second, you may have noticed I've been a little absent. That's because I'm technically on vacation with my family :) So there you have it. Short post :)
Today's pitch comes to us from Anna who you may remember from April. Anna has a background in teaching and strives to entertain and teach children about different cultures in her writing. (I believe this book has been self-published, but Anna is still hoping to strengthen her pitch for marketing purposes. Very appropriate that it is the pitch that falls in the middle of our self-publishing series! :))
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Hug-A-Bug Travels To Europe
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 3-8)
The Pitch: Fasten your seat belts and prepare for a high-flying trip with Hug-A-Bug to the famous Giza Pyramids. On his visit, he wows the reader with the exploration of hieroglyphics and Egyptian phrases. During his travels, he meets up with someone who needs a hug. Who will he meet this time?
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 Anna 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. There are openings in August, so you have time to polish :) for a chance for it to be read by editor Erin Molta!
Anna is looking forward to your thoughts on her pitch!
