I'm the New Vice President of Digital, Communications and Community Engagement at Little Pickle Press!
I really like the quality and heart so evident in every one of Little Pickle Press' books and Apps and other media, and love the foundation that supports everything they're doing - they're out to create content that gets young people and their adults talking about things that matter, towards making this a better world.
That's very much my foundation as well, for my own writing, and this blog - to create content that makes this a better world!
So what changes?
Here on this blog, not much.
I'll also continue to blog for SCBWI and lead their Team Blog at SCBWI's two major international conferences each year in New York and Los Angeles.
And I'll still be writing, evenings and weekends, towards sharing my stories with the world, too.
What will be new?
For me, cutting back all the other freelancing, and having a full-time job I'm passionate about! Working with an awesome team on the inside of a publishing/media company that I really respect! Being a Vice President (okay, my husband has been so teasing me about that one - in the nicest way!)
I'm really excited.
As I said in the fancy press release going out today,
“This is a position where my last 11 years in the world of children’s literature – blogging, interviewing, writing, radio-show producing, conference organizing, panel moderating, school visiting, diversity advocating, community building, and of course, reading, reading, reading – all come together to help me tell the world about Little Pickle Press’ stories. Stories that will make our world a better place. It’s a perfect match!”
So happy to share my good news!
