High Five: 2 Announcements

HIGH FIVE was one of my blogging features that went by the wayside last year while I was studying to become a web designer. And now that it's 2014, the year of cosmic things, I thought I'd bring it back with a bang. What? You don't know what HIGH FIVE is? By all means, take a peek at some wonderful insights from these 27 amazing debut picture book authors.

Announcement #1: Get ready to hear some more! On Friday, March 14th, I'm kicking off the comeback for HIGH FIVE with 14 weeks of awesome interviews. It will be a challenge for me to get everyone lined up in time, but it'll be worth it!

Announcement #2: The WINTER Lucky Clover Picture Book Contest is still accepting submissions through March 31st. So you still have 3 and a half weeks left to get those submissions in. Guidelines can be found on the contest tab above. What do you win? Bragging rights, exposure, and a critique of your ms from yours truly.

Have a great day and keep on keepin' on...


  1. Hi there! I have tried several times to enter your Winter Lucky Clover Writing Contest using the email address you provided. Is there a different email address that I could try? This one keeps coming back Mail Delivery Failure! ;-(

    1. It's wildbike @ netzero . net. But, of course don't leave the spaces in there. If it still doesn't work, then you could click over to my website from the big brown link above, click on ABOUT, and send me a message that way. Just copy/paste your story into the message box and click on "send your message." Thanks!

    2. I edited my contact tab above on this blog, so you could go there from that link as well.

  2. Hi Christie,
    Thank you for offering this contest. Can the PB submission be about any children's subject matter?

    1. Yes, Tracy. Any subject matter, so long as it's appropriate for a PB.

  3. Great! I plan on submitting next week. Thank you. :-)
