Kudos & Industry News


Author Carol Murray sent me a  note this week thanking me for advising her to submit and sign with agent Kathleen Rushall of Marsal Lyon. Kathleen sold Carol’s poetry collection, Cricket in the Thicket to Christy Ottaviano Books (her  imprint) with Henry Holt & Company. Melissa Sweet has been contracted to do the illustrations.

At Knopf Books for Young Readers, Michele Burke has been promoted to senior editor and Allison Worchte moves up to editor. SO HAPPY FOR BOTH OF YOU!

Maria Ribas has been promoted to assistant editor at Harlequin Nonfiction and Harlequin Kimani.


Jonathan Cape Children‘s, which has been publishing new picture books and backlist titles by Roald Dahl and Joan Aiken, will now publish new fiction, led by Random House Children’s UK publisher Annie Eaton.

Penguin Australia announced it will rename its Books for Children & Young Adults as Penguin Young Readers.

Talk tomorrow,



  1. Yay for everyone all around! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! 😀


  2. I’ve read several just right stuff here. Definitely value bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how a lot attempt you place to make this sort of great informative site.


  3. I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still


    • coupons, it was OK for me, but at times it’s slow, but I think it’s “internet,” not this particular blog 🙂
