We chatted it up for weeks and now ScottTreimelNY.com is here! Oh, the myriad wonders that await.
Submissions Our on-line Submission Form (we jettisoned snail- mailed and emailed submissions) means we now respond in THIRTY DAYS!(rather than our long-standing 90 days).
Writers and/or Illustrators note: we still look hard for talent, established and new. Lest anyone forget, STNY has a tradition of finding new talent and launching first-rate careers.
Business Partners will work with ease on password-protected content areas.
Acquiring Editorscan directly download illustrated manuscripts and/or large files and have access to continually updated ancillary materials and relevant websites.
Permission Editors can request work via an on-line Permissions Form!
Foreign Colleagues can source STNY’s continually updated catalogue and check the status of projects in development. Sales support materials— reviews, awards, licensing deals, and media coverage— will be posted for each title and/or author. Who can ask for anything more?
This is THE BESThistorical of all. Pat Hughes's first book went over big where she set it, Missouri, an undeclared state during the Civil War. Seven years after the hardcover release of GUERRILLA SEASON, FSG is giving the world a paperback— hoping Missouri will require every middle-grader to buy— I mean, read it. If you write historical fiction— or anything at all— read GUERRILLA SEASON, it's downrightscintillating.
Here is a SPECTACULAR book by writing + illustrating dynamos (also husband and wife) Jeff Crosby and Shelley Ann Jackson.
LITTLE LIONS, BULL BAITERS, & HUNTING HOUNDS traces 50 dog breeds to their geographic origins, connecting them to the jobs they were breed specifically to perform. Jeff and Shelly's next book, on Horses, is in-the-works.
ScottTreimelNY.com (we expect) will launch this week!
John and I are now reading on electronic readers, and submissions henceforth are ONLY accepted via our electronic submission form. Now, before you start grousing, take heed: we will now respond MUCH faster. We still want exclusives but our turnaround will be one-third our long-standing 90 days. We will now respond to submissions within 30 days. Cool, right?
Snail-mailed hardcopy submissions will be returned un-opened.
Submissions emailed to our STNY mailboxes will be deleted unread.
We will not answer submissions for screenplays or for the adult market.
(Who is Pamela Travers? That's why we have Wikipedia.)
In a British review, she wrote that anyone who writes for children successfully is probably writing for one child, namely the child that is him/herself. That one true inner critic, to me, ALWAYS knows best. if there is a barrier to sourcing it, you have to get over it.
Janie Bynum's super cute, pastel-y pictures will smile you up (despite the kinda lame text). LITTLE FLOWER GIRL wannabes might commence plucking petals themselves for tossing practice. Not to worry: the book comes with a packet of FREEsilkorganzapetals. Now, that's fancy!
