Mid-Week Notes

Three quick things:

  1. My publisher and I have begun to discuss the cover for my YA historical, Matchless. I can’t wait to see the design! I’ve sent her my photos of my grandfather’s shtetl from my 2008 visit for inspiration. The photo on the left is from that shtetl, Zaromb (Zareby Koscielne in Polish), northeast of Warsaw. I think this is the street where my grandfather may have lived.
  2. Aside from my two fellowships this summer, I’ll be attending a three-day workshop for community college language arts instructors at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. I have a grant to help defray travel and lodging.
  3. Thanks to those of you who contacted me seeking agency representation. It’s going to be a busy summer!

That’s it for this week. Have a good one.

  1. I sure hope the cover for your books is terrific. So exciting! Busy is good.

  2. This is so exciting, Barbara! How did you find your agent? I’d love to hear more about the process of getting your book ready for publication.

    • Thanks, Evelyn. I found my agent three years ago with a YA nonfiction book proposal of an infamous Jewish couple. That’s morphed into a biography of the wife in verse, which has not yet been submitted. While I sent that proposal to more than 25 potential agents, she was the one most interested. Most I never heard from.
