I am part way through writing the second book in a series of children's story books in verse entitled Mickey the Scouse seagull. Whilst I have previously had my poetry published I am a complete new comer to the genre of writing for children.
I am currently looking for an agent or publisher to take my work forward but am still in the early stages of this process.
I have made a first attempt at an elevator pitch and would appreciate any feedback you could give me.
thanks in advance.
Mickey’s elevator pitch
A charming series of stories in verse with a distinctly Scouse accent, suitable for all children aged between 7 and 97.
Along the banks of the river Mersey in the great city of Liverpool lies the bustling port of Seaforth. A busy gateway to the rest of the big wide world way way over the horizon beyond the Mersey on far far away tides.
It’s also home to a unique feathered family of seagulls known as “the Seaforth flock” and one very special gull in particular Mickey the Scouse seagull.
Our little friend Mickey was no more than an egg the day he arrived at the Seaforth dock. From the moment he hatched, amongst the empty container stacks he freely did roam, long before he ever learned to fly and make the skies over Liverpool his home.
He is a graduate of the school of tough breaks and hard knocks but bears no trace of this as about his daily adventures he goes.
If you visit Liverpool and a seagull you should meet, be it on Bootle Strand or any other street; remember to say hello as Mickey it could be; oh and don’t forget to remember to offer him some cheese.
