We're so thrilled to announce this deal for Nancy Raines Day!

Nancy Raines Day's BABY'S FIRSTS, illustrated by Michael Emberley, a rhyming picture book with lyrical, sparse text that celebrates baby's first year—hugging and crying, rolling and crawling, talking and more, to Yolanda Scott at Charlesbridge, for publication in February 2018, by Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency for the author and Rick Richter at Aevitas Creative Management for the illustrator (World English).

After selling so many books on her own as an accomplished author in her own right, this is Nancy's first EMLA repped deal and the first of many more to come! We're so proud of Nancy and so delighted by her beautiful, lyrical writing!

Congratulations, Nancy!

House Arrest

House Arrest
K.A. Holt

Super versatile and prolific author K. A. Holt has been tearing up the turf lately: her uber popular middle-grade novel HOUSE ARREST has passed twelve state lists and garnered many awards and accolades, and her newest title, GNOMEAGEDDON, will be on shelves in May. Through all this, what is a busy author to do? Why, keep writing of course!

I'm thrilled to say that there is more Kari coming! Here's the latest deal from the Publishers Marketplace posting:

HOUSE ARREST author K.A. Holt's DEAR ME, about a girl who, three years after her sister's death, stumbles upon a list of things she had wanted to do—and takes it upon herself to complete that list, with sometimes hilarious, sometimes disastrous results, to Erin Black at Scholastic, by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency (World).

Hooray Kari! Everybody wins J
