SCBWI's Blueboard - A Message & Chat Board

I'm happy to announce at last...

Discussion started on

(A little bit late) !!

Rachel Stark at Sky Pony Press has acquired Kersten Hamilton's middle-grade novel, Los Dias de los Muertos. In a border town steeped in magic, a Mexican-American girl faces prejudice, ignorance, and the immigration police as she struggles to keep a promise to her dead mother. It is scheduled for spring 2018; Erin Murphy at Erin Murphy Literary Agency negotiated the deal for world English rights.

Also, a Chinese publisher aquired rights to my picture book, Police Officers on Patrol!
