Announcements

Also, I can't believe I didn't post about this when it happened or even the last time I updated, but I got promoted. I mentioned it in in the post below, but I wanted to call it out because it's exciting. I am now an Assistant Editor. YAY!

And in other news, stay tuned for another series of blog posts from me. This series will be called the Junior Editor Spotlight. I wanted to give a shoutout to some editors out there in the kid lit arena who are in the range of Editorial Assistant to Associate Editor, since we're the younguns, the ones who don't necessarily get as much credit or as much recognition, despite doing a lot of work behind the scenes. And mostly because we're all trying to build our careers and build our names and it'll be a fun way to show readers who is out there that you might not have heard about yet. I have the first few interviews already planned, but I also want to mention that if anyone has any suggestions for junior editors they'd like me to interview, feel free to leave their names in the comments section or email me. It's ok if you don't have their contact information - I'm good at tracking people down if I don't already know them. >:-) *evil laugh*

I found your blog and would like to add some information about you and your promotion on my blog http://kathytemean.wordpress.com

I run regular updates called, "On the Move." Since you sound like a very savvy networking editor, I thought you might be interested in having me put you up on my writing and illustrating blog. I am the Regional Advisor for the New Jersey Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. I am always looking for new assistant editors to bring out to one of our events. My e-mail is: Kathy.temean@verizon.net, if you want to contact me. Good luck with your promotion.
