One thing I’ve learned while working on my picture book Summoning the Phoenix is to take everything in stride since unplanned changes often occur. Well, this is one change that is a delight to announce. My publisher Shen’s Books has been acquired by Lee & Low, a wonderful NYC-based publisher of multicultural books for children and young adults. While Lee & Low is now my official publisher, it’s keeping the Shen’s brand name, and Summoning the Phoenix will be the first book to debut under the Shen’s Books imprint in Spring 2014.
I’m grateful to my former publisher who gave this little book a chance, and I’m excited to be working with the excellent staff at Lee & Low.
