Hello my lovey book people! I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend. I wanted to check-in and remind everyone that there’s only ONE week left to register for Brian Gehrlein’s Picture Book Spotlight #PBCritiqueFest! If you’re a picture book creator, you can’t miss out on this  AMAZING one-time picture book critique giveaway celebration! With 36 picture book critiques to from agents, editors, and super talented authors and illustrators, this is a wonderful opportunity to connect with the industry pros! If there’s one thing I’ve learned throughout my time as a kidlit creator, feedback is integral to our growth! 

According to the #PBCritiqueFest website, “The purpose of this annual event is to celebrate the critique and revision process and to help build our kidlit community. It’s my sincerest hope that new connections will be made and that actual, living, breathing books will be birthed out of this process.”

The deadline to enter is October 30th 9AM CST. 36 winners will be randomly selected and then “paired with their person” based on information provided on the registration form. Winners will be announced throughout the day on Saturday, October 31st on Twitter, Facebook, and on the Picture Book Spotlight blog.

Help spread the word by using the festival hashtag! #PBCritiqueFest and visit PB Spotlight for more info and a full list of instructions on how to enter the giveaway! Good luck to all!
