New Book Announcements


It’s official! Charlesbridge announced my next book in Publisher’s Weekly:

Children’s: Picture book
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 Zachary Shuster Harmsworth for the illustrator (World English).

So excited to work with this terrific editor, house, and illustrator!

Today, September 1, a book is born. Welcome into the world of What in the World? Numbers in Nature.

The celebration started last week, when the New York Times Book Review included this title in a back-to-school roundup of picture books dealing with numbers.

The celebration continues with local signings–First Friday at the Brunswick Public Library, 6-8 p.m. on September 4 and at G.J. Ford Bookshop on St. Simons Island, 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, September 12.

Want to join the celebration? On the Simon & Schuster What in the World? page, you can order a copy from the publisher or your favorite online bookseller. You can also become a “fan”–and get your choice of other e-books published by S&S–free.  And check out my guest post for writers on “Fiction University“–new today.

Cheers!
