12x12in'12: April Announcement

Hey! I actually won something by participating in 12x12! Back in early March, Julie Hedlund welcomed guest blogger Mira Reisberg to present her "4 P's of Getting Published." Go here to find out what they are! Mira offered a free Skype picture book consultation to 12x12 participants, and to qualify, I had to respond to the post and say which of the 4 P's I needed most work on. It's PATIENCE. Go here to read my response as well as Mira's very kind reply and announcement that I was among 3 winners!

Aside from being a very nice honor, this is an amazing opportunity to get some one-on-one feedback with a true storytelling guru. Mira (also known as the Picture Book Whisperer) is an award-winning picture book author and illustrator as well as an accomplished mentor and educator to many hugely successful children's writers. You can learn more about Mira and what she does at www.mirareisberg.com.

Thanks again to Julie at 12x12 for providing this very cool opportunity. I look forward to sharing one of my manuscripts with Mira and taking advantage of her wealth of knowledge and experience.

Anyone who posts a reply to this blog will instantly qualify to win a free fashion consultation with me. But since I wear the same grey zip-up hoodie and pants every day, you might do better without my advice.
