Forwarded for Mr. Nori Tani of Los Angeles

I have exciting news for you.

My wife, Marianne, who was a journalist and published three celebrity biographies, has now written a children’s fantasy novel called “Esther Hanada’s Mega Manga Mix-Up.”

She entered her query letter in the 2021 Pitchapalooza contest and was selected as winner from more than 500 applicants. The prize is an introduction to a literary agent, taking her one step closer to publication.

Currently, Pitchapalooza is also holding a Fan Favorite Contest. I would really appreciate it if you could vote for her. Here is the link and instructions how to do it:


Scroll down the page until you see the list of people who are entered in the 2021 Pitchapalooza contest.

She’s about 2/3 down:


Click on the circle next to the title, then scroll down a little more and press the “vote” button.

After that you should see the current results. That lets you know your vote was accepted. Everyone can only vote once.

If you happen to know of a friend or family member who would be willing to vote for me also, please share this email.

Marianne and I thank you for your support.

I’m so proud of her!
