Sneak Peeks

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. We’re just getting back into the swing of things here in the office after a nice break. We’ve finalized our fall 2010 title list. And, since I have enjoyed going through manuscripts and brainstorming marketing plans this week, I thought I’d share a little info on some of the upcoming projects.

Of course, as always in publishing, nothing is ever completely final at this point…just a necessary little disclaimer. But here are some of the things I’m particularly looking forward to.

We’ve partnered with the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in a fabulous cookbook project. I just looked through the manuscript, and the recipes sound amazing. When coupled with photos, this will be the perfect gift book for those who love traditional foods.

We’re also doing our book with Laura Pedersen this fall. Laura is the author of Buffalo Gal, which was published in the fall of 2008 and has continued to receive great responses (especially up in Buffalo, NY). Her new book is a little less memoir, and a little more history with all of Laura’s usual humor. She is a wonderful author to work with.

From our Speck Press imprint we’re looking forward to a hilarious history of hooch. (Sorry for the alliteration, but I couldn’t resist.) This will have great images to go with the intelligent and funny writing of Richard English. I’m just wrapping up my first read through the manuscript, and I’ve laughed out loud enough that my co-workers must think I’m a little crazy.

Next in the process comes cover development. Covers are always one of my favorite steps in the process. I’m already looking forward to updating the blog during those meetings!
