What’s #PBPitch? It’s a designated day for pitching your picture book on Twitter in the hopes that agents will see it, and put a heart on it! We can pitch as many manuscripts as we want, but only twice each: Once in the morning, and once in the evening. This means something like pitch before 2 p.m. and pitch after 2 p.m. Click here for more details.
I’m participating in this pitch fest for the first time. The rules are that only agents/editors should “heart” pitches. Everyone else, please support with a comment or retweet. Good luck to you if you are participating!
First come, first served basis. I can only do US orders at this time.
First time visiting? My name is Becky Benishek, and my picture books can help the child or children in your life explore the world around them, enjoy whimsical adventures, learn about empathy, and feel good about the person they are.
A guinea pig named George lives in a house with a person named George, who is a doctor. But every time the phone rings and someone in the house says, “George, it’s for you,” guinea pig George thinks they mean him! Then one day, George is able to show what he can do during a very unexpected house call.
Dr. Guinea Pig George helps kids believe in themselves, even if their dreams seem out of reach.
A kitten named Mouse meows so much that she’s always being told to hush! Only Little Liz appreciates Mouse, because nobody really pays attention to what she has to say, either. Then one day, they prevent a crime, proving that even though they’re small, they’re worth being listened to!
Hush, Mouse! helps kids feel their voices are important, no matter their size.
