A Discussion with Editor and Publisher Elizabeth Law
New Books Nework 2023
Elizabeth Law has worked in the publishing field her whole life, first as an Editor at Viking Children’s Books and Puffin Books, as Associate Publisher at Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers, then later as Publisher at Egmont USA, and more recently as the backlist and special projects editor at Holiday House Books for Young Readers. Elizabeth has also works as a professional consultant with writers and artists. In this wonderful follow-up interview, we talk about the advantages (and tribulations) of traditional publication, to those of self-publishing. You are welcome to contact Elizabeth at ElawReads.com, and Twitter, @ElawReads. And if you find the 'mistake' in Bemelman's Madeline, don't tell me. I'm not sure I want to know.
