On the Move

Jenny Bent has left Trident Media Group to form The Bent Agency.
(Her 15 years in publishing included a stint at Cader Books.)  Jenny’s last
children’s book sold while at Trident was Liz Rosenberg’s I DID IT ANYWAY,
about a little boy who indulges in some wildly imaginative play while waiting
for his friend to make time for him, to Hyperion Children’s Books.

Daniel Ehrenhaft joins Sourcebooks as a middle grade and YA acquisitions editor in their New York offices. Previously he was with Alloy Entertainment. Ehrenhaft is also the author of many books for young readers, under his own name and a couple of pseudonyms. Here’s his author bio:

Sourcebooks’s submission guidelines still say, “We are not currently accepting unagented submissions for children’s books.”

The company is also rolling out the carpet for the HORRID HENRY books, which have been wildly popular in Britain for years. Despite the fact that author Francesca Simon is American, the books have seemed too
British to American editors until now.

Erin Molta, former editor at Scholastic has started her own critiquing service.  She has 20 years experience in editing books – from picture books, easy readers, chapter books to middle grade and YA novels.  You can contact her
