Melanie Crowder

Releasing Janurary 8th, 2015, Melanie Crowder's AUDACITY is already receiving starred reviews. School Library Journal gave it a star, praising the book's "verse form of the narrative" and how it "lends lightness to an otherwise bleak topic and moves the story along quickly, while artful formatting of the text creates and sustains mood. ...AUDACITY is an impactful addition to any historical fiction collection." Congratulations, Melanie! We can't wait for this one to reach YA readers everywhere!

Carole Gerber is a somewhat newer addition to the agency, but she is not at all new to publishing. Prior to joining our team she has published a number of wonderful picture books, the most recent of which, TUCK-IN TIME, was released this month from Margaret Ferguson Books.

Today is a very special day, however: Our first sale to celebrate under the EMLA umbrella! TEN BUSY BROOMS is a delightfully zany counting story about witches-on-brooms. Rendered in spectacular rhyme, it's shivery with a dash of silly—just right for Halloween.

As you might imagine, TEN BUSY BROOMS was a hot property, garnering heated interest from two different publishers. After this flurry of activity, the manuscript settled at last with the wonderful Frances Gilbert at Doubleday. Look for it on shelves in fall 2016!

Congratulations, Carole!
