Busy Days Ahead

School days, school days, break the golden rule days!

Yes, by now, school is back in session all over the U.S., and I think some Canadians have already taken their first snow day.

The fall is shoring up to be a very busy time for Elephant's Bookshelf Press, too. In the coming weeks we'll be revealing covers for the next two publications: Tales From the Bully Box, an anthology of anti-bullying stories targeting Middle Grade readers edited by Cat Woods, and the much anticipated Billy Bobble Makes a Magic Wand by R.S. Mellette. I can't tell you how excited I am about both of these books!

In the coming weeks, I'm also aiming to reinvigorate this blog, where we'll post interviews and profiles and news about some EBP writers and friends of EBP. For example, did you know that Stitching Snow, the debut novel by our book designer, R.C. Lewis will released from Disney Hyperion in mid-October? I've got my hard-cover copy on pre-order, and I hope you do too! And the next novel by Mindy McGinnis, In a Handful of Dust -- the companion novel to her fantastic debut, Not a Drop to Drink -- will be out in just a couple weeks.

And those are just the works that slide off my brain stem after a half cup of coffee on a Friday morning.

What hot debuts and releases are you looking forward to this fall?
