Suzy Leopold won
OLIVER: The Second-Largest Living Thing on Earth by Josh Crute

Winners please send your names and addresses to: kathy(dot)temean(at)gmail(dot)com


This week I received four book covers. I had to show them off. All are gorgeous. Plus this will give you a little tease on future book giveaways.

Lynn Marie just received the cover art for her new book illustrated by David Rodriguez Lorenzo. (Front Above) (Back below).

This latest picture book is coming out from Sterling Publishing on August 6th. It is a fun, shivery take on a favorite fairy tale! Forget Goldilocks and the three bears—MOLDILOCKS and the THREE SCARES here is a delightfully zombie-tastic new version of the popular story.

Carole Gerber has IF YOU’RE SCARY AND YOU KNOW IT coming out early in September for Halloween. It is illustrated by Noel Ill.

Amalia Hoffman has two cover reveals – Lucky Lady!

THE BRAVE CYCLIST is coming out in August, 2019 by Capstone Publishing.

ALL COLORS Board Book is coming out in Fall 2019 by Schiffer Publishing.



At Algonquin Children’s, Sarah Alpert has been promoted to associate editor, now acquiring middle-grade and young adult fiction and non-fiction and graphic novels.

At Little, Brown: Alexandra Hoopes has been promoted to assistant editor; Lucy Kim is now art director and Tim Harrington is senior art director.


Talk tomorrow,
