I’m going to make this quick! I’d been dying to go to BlogHer Handmade at The Creative Connection this September and to mingle with all these wonderful talented creative women, designers, textile manufactures, and artsy craftsy folks. I signed up for their mailing list. Days later, I got one about a Pitch Slam and one of the categories was for Children’s Book Authors and Illustrators. Well, guess what, I’d written and illustrated The Little Curls On My Head for Natural Hair Parade annnnd I submitted my pitch to the event coordinators. Less than a week later, I receive WONDERFUL news that I’d won the initial contest portion and will be moving on to St. Paul, MN to pitch my book LIVE in front of a panel of major authors, publishers, and industry leaders. Geeked? Very.
I’ll keep you posted!!
