Romance Novel Publishers

This list of Romance Novel Publishers came from a few different blogs but mostly from BookFox post called 40 Romance Publishers Who Want Your Novel. The language in the document comes from BookFox and other websites and blogs so they are not my words, mostly. I cleaned up the lists and updated the links (Updated July 2021). Some sites say “Not currently accepting” but that mostly appears to be because of Covid-19 so I kept them on the list to check back soon.

Looking forward to seeing some end of the pandemic Party Like it’s the Roaring 20’s plot lines! 

Summer at the library

Since I learned to read I remember spending summers at my local library. Last summer I spent in residency at the Drummond Island, MI Library and was inspired to create new works during a summer at a library.  My girls have been enrolled in summer reading programs since birth.  This summer was to be the first year my oldest daughter is of age to officially volunteer for the summer reading program. But that is not to be. We fully support continued closures of all public spaces during this pandemic and she will have next summer.

This got me thinking however about how all of us library-goers will get through a summer without our local library activities. Our library has a coffee shop and a used shop. We love to putter around and discover new things. I will miss bumping into displays the thoughtful librarians have pulled together because they understand readers and how our likes are complicated. But the continued closure of our local libraries won’t keep us from reading. Monday, June 1st is the kick-off of the Summer Reading program. Check out your local library online to sign up for their summer reading program. You can still borrow e-books from the library and if you can’t live without a real book call up your local book store. We have the amazing Changing Hands bookstore in Phoenix – if you don’t have a local book store order from Indie Bound online.

Happy Summer Reading! I have a pretty high stack of books I plan to get through this summer but I am always open to reading suggestions.

Art that Pops

In 2005 I ran into a friend from graduate school on the streets of SOHO in NYC. She worked at Scholastic at the time and we exchanged contact info. A few days later she contacted me and asked if I would create a kid’s creativity book for the Scholastic School Book Fair program. The requirements were few, mostly I just needed to create a book filled with imaginative tutorials including step by step images. I created this book and it was published in the Spring of 2006. It sold at school book fairs for a few years until it was retired.

 

 

Because this text is no longer available to purchase through Scholastic I have scanned it and am sharing it as a downloadable PDF. In a time of Covid-19 sheltering in place we need ideas to use our imagination. These are fun projects for kids and adults. Enjoy!
