This March Illustration was sent in by Barbara Eveleth. Barbara was featured on Illustrator Saturday in 2010. She tells stories with watercolor and cut paper collage.

Edward Necarsulmer IV and Eleanor Jacksonhave joined Dunow, Carlson & Lerner. Necarsulmer was previously an agent at MacIntosh & Otis, and will focus on representing middle grade, YA, and adult literary fiction. Jackson was most recently an agent at Markson Thoma, which last week saw partner Geri Thoma move to Writers House.

Nancy Inteli has joined Harper Children’s early childhood as editorial director. Nancy She was the global editorial director at the Disney Book Group. The division has also hired both Kristen Pettit and Alexandra Cooper as executive editors. Petit was most recently with Razorbill and will acquire and develop teen and tween fiction; Cooper, was at Simon & Schuster Children’s for thirteen years.

After some publicity Ninety-six-year-old LA blogger Barbara Cooper found her Fall In Love for Life making online bestseller lists. I figured anyone who is 96 years old should get a kudo, even if they haven’t written a children book.

This is interesting: April’s Next Indie list features a tie for the #1 choice for the first time, and both happen to be novels titled LIFE AFTER LIFE, by Kate Atkinson and Jill McCorkle, respectively. The full list:

At Crown/Hogarth, Zack Wagman has been promoted to senior editor, and Christine Kopprasch moves up to associate editor.

NEW: The Folio Prize, named for its sponsor publisher The Folio Society, will hand out its inaugural 40,000 pound ($60,000) purse in March 2014.

The new literary prize is hoping to beat the Booker to the title of Britain’s most prestigious fiction award – in part by including Americans. I will report more about this as details come out.

Talk tomorrow,

Kathy
