I'm Open to New Clients... and Other News

After having had a great experience doing short consultations for the SCBWI Summer Spectacular, I've decided to drop my minimum fee for my editorial services from $500 to $250 (and for consulting to $175), in the hope that writers or illustrators with small projects or a need for a short consultation will be interested in my services. Please see what's available in the PC Editorial Services section.

The Updates

Not much new on the Who's Moving Where page--editors do not seem to be moving around--but you will find one item. At least the pandemic is not causing layoffs in trade publishing in the way it has in textbook publishing--HMH recently laid off a lot of people in their educational publishing division.

I've updated the Pura Belpré Award page in the children's book awards section. That means I'm almost done with that section for the year, with only the Sibert and the upcoming National Book Award left.

I also want to let you know that there is still room in the new Crash Course in Children's Book Publishing, coming this week as an online class from the Highlights Foundation, which you'll find listed on my Conferences page.

Finally, I've added a link on my Interviews page to a video of an interview with me that author Mel Rosenberg did recently, covering various subjects, including how I become a children's book editor.
