MIDDLE GRADE in the NEWS 7/19/18

Here are a few news and special feature articles I’ve enjoyed recently (If you missed any of the previous posts click here to see them all):

  1. For dog lovers out there here are some dog-inspired books to ease those ruff days of summer.
  2. I’ve heard authors lament the time it takes to have a book sold to a publisher. Here’s an exception with the upcoming ORPHAN’S OF THE TIDE, snapped up in under 24 hours.
  3. There seems to be a new Marvel Comic book movie coming out every year. Now they’re going to reel in young readers with a new middle grade comic series featuring all of your superheroes.

I’ll be back on Friday with the most fantastic non-fiction title this year: THE ULTIMATE BOOK OF SHARKS.

    Such great dog lover books, especially WISH 😊 It’s so cool that the comics will also be for middle grade audience!Hope you are having a great summer.

  2. Loved Wish. Kirby Lawson and Patricia MacLaughlan have published some great dog books. Saw an entire display of dogs books at B&N yesterday. Along with pet club, pet rescue books for younger kids.

  3. Just getting caught up on my reading. Thanks for this. Nice to see Wish featured in the first article. Such a sweet book. Don’t we all dream of editors staying up half the night reading our manuscripts? I know I do. I will have to keep my eyes open for that book. My granddaughter is obsessed with the Marvel characters. She will be thrilled to hear about the new comics.
