Marcie's MONSTORE Photo Contest

Hey lovers of Kidlit! 

Did you hear about my fabulous MONSTORE Photo Contest? 

I'm thinking you didn't, because so far the entries are slim.
What are you waiting for? 

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you are waiting for your copy to arrive and the mailman is being slow.  Yeah.  That's it.  Let's blame it on the mailman! 

In case you don't remember the rules.  Here they are:

  1. Be a Follower of this blog.
  2. Buy a copy of THE MONSTORE. (Order it from places that already have it: IndieBound, Amazon,
  3. Read the book. (Seriously. Its good. You will thank me.)
  4. Review the illustrations and pick a monster that you would buy from The Monstore.
  5. Name that monster and decide what it's unique monsterly talent is (what your monster does!)
  6. Take a picture of yourself pointing to your monster in the book.
  7. Post your picture on your own social media and tell us about your Monstore purchased monster.
  8. Also, email the picture to
One lucky winner will receive ONE PICTURE BOOK MANUSCRIPT CRITIQUE from the fantabulous Tara Lazar! (plus, a signed bookplate and gummi worms!)

You have until 5pm EST Friday, July 5th! So get buying, reading and snapping.

And spread the word!

Thank you for entering, Carrie Charley Brown.

Carrie says, "Upon visiting The Monstore, I would purchase this little fuzzy monster that appears to have a handle. I would name him "Zip!" His talent would be zipping over to the messes on our kitchen floor to clean up!"
