Publishing Industry Lowdown (June 11-June 15)

It’s that day again–time for Sooz’s YA and MG Publishing Industry Lowdown. The general idea is that I share all the deals I know 0f in the young adult and middle grade publishing world each Friday.

My source for deal news is Publishers Marketplace, which requires a paid subscription. As such I’m only sharing part of the information here–basically, just author names and pitches. If you want to know deal sizes (e.g. advances), editors, publishers, and agents, I highly recommend you sign up for PM–it’s totally worth the cost!

Guys, I FORGOT to post this week. Like, LITERALLY FORGOT. And suddenly, it’s 5 in the evening on Friday, and I haven’t posted since Monday.

I might have gone into minor panic mode, so please, PLEASE accept my apology for being slow and absent.

Now on to the deals, shall we?

I was super absent this week. SORRY, EVERYONE. I got some really bad news over the weekend and had a deadline on Wednesday. Hopefully things will get back to normal soon. 🙂

Now let’s get started, shall we? (It was a very quiet week thanks to BEA!)

Friday the 13th Pub Lowdown!

It’s that day again…except NOT. Because today is different from other Fridays. Today is riddled with horror and bad luck. Today might be the worst day for publishing…or maybe the best–if you’re one of those superstitious-opposites people.

No matter the terrors of the day, it’s still time for Sooz’s YA and MG Publishing Industry Lowdow. The general idea is that I share all the deals I know if in the young adult and middle grade publishing world each Friday.

Let’s get started, shall we? (Though you should probably double check the locks on your doors…or scan for black cats.)
