The News


As many of you have heard by now, I am leaving Flux and Llewellyn on September 26 to take the editorial directorship of Carolrhoda, an imprint of Lerner Publishing Group in Minneapolis, where I will be acquiring children's books of all sorts for all ages (including YA). I do this with a good deal of sadness because my time working at Flux (and keeping this blog) has been the most rewarding of my career, but this new challenge is very exciting and offers me unique opportunities. I simply cannot pass it up (and yes, I will continue to blog. After Sept. 26, go here for details.).

I have tried to send an email to all Flux authors, but inevitably somebody will get missed or Spam filtered, so please do give me a call if you have questions or concerns. I look forward to speaking with as many of you as possible.

Thanks so much to all of you who made this such a great three years. Please keep in touch.

Andrew, I just sent you a sappy letter. Bring tissues.

Brian - thank you for making me laugh. Watch out - or I might send you a sappy letter too.

The question on everyone's mind is: Who will speak the truth of sausage-making now?

Flux's loss is Carolrhoda's gain. And readers will still be the big beneficiaries. Congratulations and best of luck!!

Good luck, Yoda! Do I still get to do a portrait of baby Yoda?
