We are very excited to be preparing for the second annual Text Prize. We are also really looking forward to publishing last year’s winner, Richard Newsome’s The Billionaire’s Curse. The first in a trilogy, it is due for release in August, but it has already created quite a stir at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, which is just finishing up. German rights have been sold to Oetinger, and we are in negotiations with a number of publishers in other territories. Everyone’s wild about Newsome.
So if you have—or know someone who has—a manuscript for young adults or younger readers, make sure they enter it in this year’s prize.
