Yes, it’s almost time for the 30-picture-book-ideas-in-30-days challenge, otherwise known as PiBoIdMo! The picture book writer’s alternative to NaNoWriMo will kick off the last week in October and continue through the month of November.

In late October you’ll be able to sign up, grab a badge for your blog and social networks, and get ready for some awesome prizes! There will be critiques from published authors, feedback from literary agents, original illustrations by picture book arists, signed books, jewelry, journals, and who knows what else! You’ll also be able to purchase PiBoIdMo merchandise with the proceeds benefitting book charities. So get those notebooks ready!

In the meantime, here’s a Halloween greeting. I hope to see you for PiBoIdMo soon!
