Bite My Head Off

These are my new favorite cookie cutters.

Over at Book Roast, rumor has it they're partnering with Reach Out and Read (ROR), a children's book charity. The children's books aren't up quite yet, but it's a good reason to add it to the list of blogs you check compulsively (how many are there, now?).

Ooh... the practical jokes are already running through my head.....

Unfortunately, I think they would get other people's kids in trouble.... =(

"Bob! Did you eat the heads off all the cookies Mrs. Mundy baked for us! Don't lie--- The dog's not so methodical!"

Great cookie cutters!

Book Roast - check. As well as, um, 19 others on my blog roll. That doesn't count the extras that get thrown in there from those blogs. Writing. I was writing, wasn't I?

I gotta go get those cookie cutters.

I wonder if my kindergarten students would appreciate these! "Today, children, we will be making self-portraits..."

QUESTION... ( a la Dwight Schrute): If your agent routinely takes weeks to answer emails, neglects to answer some at all, and takes over a month just to read (let alone give feedback) on your picture book manuscripts, is it because:
A- you haven't yet had a sale and are the low man on the totem pole.
B- she's just plain swamped with work
C- she's neglectful and forgetful
D-all of the above
E-(insert your own answer)

Thank you!!!

We're partnering with ROR for the next roast, but a blurb will go out about them on Saturday morning. They're a great charity--having given more than five million books to children (more info on Saturday's blurb)

Those cookie cutters are a scream!!

My friends gave me a set of those cookie cutters after my (now long-gone!) flatmate kept eating all of my food.

Question: Why haven't you had any responses to your query and picture book manuscript (of COURSE the book is fab) from the various publishers you sent them to months ago?
A: The editor's dog ate the query letter that had all your contact information on it.
B: The editor is busy blogging and sorting through her blogging slush pile; which is ten times larger that the real slush pile.
C: The editor loves vodka as much as you, and can't remember what she reads at night and therefore is reading mss over and over and over.

:-) Future children's book author is patient, and has lots of vodka to numb the pain.
