Scarletta Press is branching out with two new imprints. Scarletta Junior features fiction and nonfiction for middle grade readers, and Scarletta Kids publishes picture books and storybooks for children up to age eight.
Scarletta started publishing children’s books in 2011, with Lost in Lexicon, a novel by Pendred Noyce. A second children’s title, The Ice Castle, also by Noyce, followed a year later.
to Scarletta’s publicity director Desiree Bussiere, “We rethought our
structure: how to acquire books and what the future face of the company
would be. We realized we really enjoyed producing and marketing
children’s books. It prompted us to look for more children’s titles, and
thus create our imprints.”
Of the 12 titles Scarletta will
publish in 2013, six are Scarletta Kids titles, four are Scarletta
Junior titles, and two are adult titles.
Be advised, their reading
period is November 1 to March 1. Their Junior Readers and Kids imprints
focus on literature and picture books with educational twists, exciting
illustrations, and engaging plots.
