Email: “Tell us briefly who you are, what your book is, and why you’re the one to write it. Then include the first ten pages of your material in the body of your e-mail. We regret that we cannot respond to each and every query, although we do our best. Rest assured that we read each one and we will certainly follow-up when we have interest.”

Over at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s trade division, Jeannette Larson has been promoted to vp, editorial director of Harcourt Children’s. She has “enjoyed a long and monogamous career in children’s books at Harcourt, starting as an editorial assistant in the San Diego office in 1987.” Larson will relocate to New York in the new year.

Mara Lander joins the Little, Brown Children’s as brand manager, working closely with the Poppy imprint, as well as with key licensors and core titles and authors. She was previously at Random House on the adult side where she implemented marketing, promotional, and advertising programs.
