SCBWI's Blueboard - A Message & Chat Board

Who's writing Easy Readers/Emergent Readers/Early Readers these days?

Discussion started on

Anyone working on one?
Anyone sold one recently?
Quick question: Do you format it like the ER with so many words per line or put it in basic paragraph, basic MS form.
THANKS!

I have a couple easy readers that my agent is just starting to send out, though I hear it's a tough/odd market because so many publishers that do these produce them in-house. I've just been formatting them the same way I'd format a picture book, if that helps.

 I sold five easy readers to Seedlings, but then Seedlings became part of Continental Press and I've never sold another.  :(

The one I'm working on is more like a Transitional Reader. 3 chapters. Total word count under 1000. Similar to the Mr. Fox stories. (Fox on the Job). Hard to write, but really fun.
