Congrats again, #PBParty finalists! I'll e-mail you tonight (probably in an hour or two). *Check Spam if you don't see it* I'll answer questions about the final round - you can see the requests on individual entries & the Illus. Showcase from last year:
Huge congratulations to all the #PBParty finalists! I didn’t make it but it’s been a wonderful learning experience (and I’ll learn even more once the finalists’ entries are up next week)—now to keep pushing and moving forward 🤗

🚨superstar alert🚨🌟⭐️✨!! Beyond excited for my #pbparty finalist fam!! Congratulations Sylvia, this is truly awesome🙌🙌
Found out my illustrations for The Sing Off came close to making the cut... This was definitely the motivation I needed to hit those revisions! Thanks again to my Critique Partners and #12x12pb for all the amazing feedback. And @MindyAlyseWeiss and judges for making #PBParty!
Hey rhymers, last chance to get in on this. I want to pull another name or two today to help boost moods post-#pbparty. Please comment with your gif or emojis on the original tweet. (Ignore the date in the original tweet since I extended it.)
Revision is like new growth on established plants. Some pruning here and there makes the story so much healthier and stronger. #amwriting #writers #Writer #writercommunity #revision #kidlit #12x12pb #pbparty #SCBWI
GIVEAWAY! 1 year ago I started the "new normal". Today I wanted to start something big, but I'm not quite ready. Instead, something sorta big: I'm giving away a critique for a RHYMING pb. Comment with a gif or emojis that fit the mood of your story. Ends 8pm 3/14 EST.
Received a careful, insightful critique by @SarahJWMeade from @MindyAlyseWeiss #PBParty train 🤩. Thank you! 💖 Sarah made a voice recording of my story too! I’m not crying, you’re crying 😭. Thank you Mindy for creating these opportunities #kidlit
It's #PBParty Motivation Monday! What would you like to accomplish this week? For me, it's: *Finish whipping my PB with a cupcake MC into shape--can't wait for my agent to send it into the world soon. Wahooooo! *Revise a few other PBs, too *Critiques *Webinars *Exercise!
Here's my post with links to the Google forms for the #PBParty contest. I also included Twitter tips for our daily discussions in March. Everyone who loves picture books is welcome to join in the chats. The judges & I can't wait to read your entries!
@MindyAlyseWeiss #PBParty Sounds yummy, Mindy! For me: ✍️ Blog post 🖍️ Begin Final Art for NUDI GILL - Wheee! 🪶 Crank out a down and dirty dummy for WIP
I can officially announce I’ve signed my first publishing contract! My #PB A WAY WITH WORDS about nonverbal communication will debut in 2022 with Ethicool! AND they’re doing something extra special with illustrations - more details soon. Woohoo! #kidlit #PBchat #PBParty
@MindyAlyseWeiss #Pbparty I'm celebrating the detailed "to do" list I just cranked out. Getting organized so I can seriously focus and get lots and lots of stuff done. 😬
@MindyAlyseWeiss Some great PBs you featured, incl. Ame's, Tara's, and Ana's! I'm happy dancing because the Carson City Library just installed their new StoryWalk featuring #OnceUponAnotherTime! https://t.co/B6QjbsfsBM #PBParty
*Totally* floating over the moon that I'm now repped by Alyssa Eisner Henkin of Birch Path Literary (@AgentHenkin)!! Special thanks to #PBParty, #PBChat, and #12x12 (+ more below). Leaping for starry dreams!!! 🤩💖💫🌟🥳
It is with great pleasure that I get to announce @DanniMund as my newest client! From a #PBPITCH to loving so many of her creative manuscripts (and all the time in between those interactions), I am excited that she accepted my offer. Welcome.
The 2021 #PBParty contest info is here! I just started sending out invites & already have 14 amazing agents/editors eager to read the final entries & browse the Illustration Showcase. Thanks again to @mescobarart for the incredible logo & banners!
Congrats to all of the finalists of #PBparty! And congrats to everyone who participated! Deep breath friends. Remember you are brave, and smart, and creative. Keep going!♥️♥️♥️
Congratulations to all the finalists! Good luck with the next phase. I can't wait to read everyones entries. It was a wild few weeks! #PBParty
When you get a critique that suggests a major rewrite... but then you realize it's genius and will make your story so much better. Thank you @BrianNBurak for the incredibly thoughtful and helpful critique! Thankful for this lucky #PBParty critique train matchup. #amwriting
I made a change to my last #PBParty post I think you'll love. 💖 A writer who made the 'close list' asked if she could call it an honorable mention in queries. A judge and I think it's an awesome idea...and wanted to share with all of you. Congrats! https://t.co/NQSk8Ww9RN
What!?! I’m a finalist in the #PBParty illustrators showcase 😮😮😮 All of the 5am wake ups to get this project done were SO WORTH IT! Even if it results in nothing more, this win is just the push I needed - a sign to keep going!
I love everything she creates. #pbchat #kidlit #picturebooks #writingcommunity #illustrators #pbparty #librarians #literaryagents
End of Summer Learning Party will start in 15 mins! Excited to have @NvDOW and a beautiful "Once Upon Another Time" #storywalk, thanks to @MattForrestVW and @BeamingBooksMN! #TailsAndTales #SummerReading
The July PB Buzz is out! I can't wait to hear what you think of all these amazing new picture books. Enter to win PBs, critiques & Zoom chats from these talented authors: @SraSiqueira1307, @Gabi_A_Snyder, @yangmommy & @SWildmanSF. https://t.co/hD0kJaXiYC #PBParty
@MindyAlyseWeiss I finished one of the ms revisions (out of 2) for an R&R and wrote a new pb draft! #pbparty
The library is magic. Every single time! Hunting, collecting, imagining. I 💛 the secret feel of being in between the shelves or sitting in a corner. I 💛 carrying a huge stack of books home. But it’s better than magic. It’s real. #picturebooks #kidlit #pbchat #libraries #pbparty
#kidlit, creators! #PBParty is an incredible opportunity! Last year, I received 6 requests for the full MS and 3 requests for additional materials. Several writers found their future agents! #kidlitart #WritingCommunity #amwriting
It's past my bedtime (because I am that tragic) but it was worth it to get my #PBParty entry in! Good luck to all, if anything it was an incredibly useful pitching exercise :)
Ecstatic for our critique group partner @lizlag79 and her finalist status with #PBParty 🥳 Celebrating you and Spino the Dino tonight! 🦖
The list of #PBParty entries that came close is here. :) Congrats again to all #PBParty finalists, those who came close...and everyone who entered. 🎉 I'm crossing my fingers and hope your next query or contest entry is a YES!
This one still has my whole heart. He will find his home someday, even if it doesn’t happen at #PBParty I have met some awesome new folks and look forward to having more talented CPs to bring my work to the next level! Goodnight Norman!
So sorry!!! I was introduced to @DanniMund via #PBParty (I have participated in #PBPITCH too & have signed clients). My apologies for this mistake. Both events have been wonderful and I appreciate all those people behind the scenes making these opportunities for all of us.
@StephDRondeau My pleasure! It’s a fantastic story concept. I hope it works! Always a bit nervous suggesting major rewrites, especially to a new writing friend I just met 😬. I love #PBParty and the critique train has led to so many great connections for me. As always @MindyAlyseWeiss you rock!
The next #PBParty New Draft Challenge & Critique Train will be on May 20 EST. Who is going to plot out a PB idea and hop on the train? 🚂It's helped me keep on track with #12x12PB--I've written 4 PBs so far in 2021 (28 total since 2019)!
It means A LOT to get an automated response from an agent. It recognizes I queried and lets me move on. And the quick ones? Even better. Agents, thanks for your responses. Thanks for that act of kindness! You know who you are… #amquerying #picturebookwriters
Simply to marinate ideas in my head as I go on a long walk WITHOUT my phone. I dare you all to try it. Unplug into nature! #think #walk #creativity #nature #ideas #picturebook #PBChat #PBParty
1/2 We knew today was going to be special! Not only did we MEET the GOAL we BLEW right past it!! THANK YOU to YOU #kidlit #kidlitart #publishing #amwriting #writingcommunity!!🎉 Tonight we celebrate you! 🎉 🎉🙏🏾
It's #PBParty Celebration Sunday! What has you happy dancing? *I read TONS of incredible new PBs & featured my faves on PB Buzz: https://t.co/hD0kJbeTQa *Revisions & crits *Some exercise-hoping for more this week *French fries (a year+ of not having them, I enjoyed some!)
