YA FEST Junior is mentioned in Publisher's Weekly!
While we are so very sad to see one of our beloved publisher's doors close, we can't help smile at the mention of our festival in the most recent PW article about EgmontUSA. Thank you for including us, Margaret Coffee. We are proud to be one of Egmont's final events for 2015, and wish you and every Egmont author well.
Coffee described some of the support efforts for books and authors. “Galleys for the spring books have gone out to booksellers, reviewers and educators, we attended EBMA, ALA Midwinter and Winter Institute to spread the word about the spring list, and created list ads for the education market,” she notes. Egmont USA is still sending its email newsletter to 15,000 subscribers. And authors are participating in blog and bookstore tours and honoring their commitments to appear at such forthcoming events as Tucson Book Festival, Houston Teen Book Con, YAFest Junior, TLA, and Romantic Times. On the stock side of things, Coffee adds, “Penguin Random House continues to sell and distribute all our titles and has remained an invaluable partner.”Read the entire article here: Egmont USA: What Comes Next
