Contest (and more coming)

It's time to announce the winner for the FALL 2012 Lucky Clover Picture Book Contest! A huge congratulations goes out to...

...Genevieve Petrillo with her manuscript, Nonna Day!
Nonna Day is a heartwarming story about a girl who longs to communicate with Nonna in her native tongue, but fears she'll never understand the language, until she gets the courage to learn a few key words.
Congratulations, Genevieve! You can expect your critique within a couple of weeks.

And now it's time to announce the WINTER 2013 open call for submissions. Get those submissions sent on in! Just e-mail your ms to me according to the manuscript guidelines.

More contests coming soon (to win a free critique by random drawing, and to win a MARKET book!)

If you could have any of your manuscripts published today, which one would you choose? (Hint, hint... submit that one...)


  1. Congrats Genvieve and congrats Christie! Have I subbed Cheeku to you before Christie?

    1. Don't think I've seen Cheeku before, Catherine. It rhymes with the name of the main character of my forthcoming book: Siku.

  2. Yay! Thanks, Christie! I do have another favorite manuscript or two. Time to give a look and enter again.

  3. Congratulations, Gen. Book two can't be far behind. You're work is great fun and so entertaining. My kids at school loved you're book. Thanks for visiting! ;-)


I love hearing from you! Share your thoughts below.
