Notes From A Children’s Book Publicist- Volume Six

by Crystal
Kids + News + Picture Books + Vancouver + YA Fiction / July 13, 2011

 

If you haven't already been able to guess, I'm crazy about my job. I love, love, love kid lit and to be able to work with such a variety of incredible children's publishers is a dream come true. I am passionate about kids books.
 
My job just recently got even better with the announcement that Raincoast is the new Canadian Distributor for Macmillan. 
 
While looking through their list I was struck by the fact that they had books from authors that I was crazy about as a kid (Madeleine L'Engle, Ann M. Martin, Francine Pascal), books that my husband read over and over again as a kid and continues to read as an adult (Orson Scott Card, Robert Jordan & Lloyd Alexander) and books that my two year old reads over and over again (Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See, My Friend Rabbit & anything by Roger Priddy). I have become a fan of many of Macmillans books and authors (Sara Varon, Tatiana De Rosnay, Gabrielle Zevin, Derek Kirk Kim, Karen Katz... really the list could go on and on and on) over my 12 years in the book industry and I am so excited to be working on the list. 
 
While reading the Macmillan Kids Enewsletter recently I found some of their incredible kid's trailers so here are two from one of my favorite children's authors/illustrators- Lane Smith.

Happy Reading!
