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!

I am excited to now be represented by Tricia Lawrence, newest agent at the Erin Murphy Literary Agency. EMLA sells more picture books than almost any other agency. Plus, it fosters networking amongst all its authors and agents–sounds like a win for everyone. I look forward to a long and happy association with Tricia!
