Bethany Buck, who has worked at both Scholastic and Simon and Schuster, joins Sky Pony Press as their new Editorial Directory.
Sky Pony, an imprint of Skyhorse Publishing, produces children’s books including picture books to middle grade and young adult. One area of success has been their books for Minecraft lovers. They currently have a backlist of 350 titles and the plan is to release between 100-150 titles in the next year.
In a press release, Buck said, “I could not be more thrilled to be joining a house with such a dynamic team, and smart, innovative publishing. I look forward to creating more books for this already stellar list.”
Sky Pony accepts submissions and has this to say about what they are seeking:
“We will consider picture books, early readers, midgrade novels, novelties, and informational books for all ages. Although we are not searching for YA fiction in particular, we would consider projects that tied in with the subject areas in which we are publishing. We are mainly publishing single titles but are open to series ideas.
“Our parent company publishes many excellent books in the fields of ecology, independent living, farm living, wilderness living, recycling, and other green topics, and this will be a theme in our children’s book line. We are also searching for books that have strong educational themes and that help inform children of the world in which they live. We are also interested in books with special needs themes, such as autism, ADHD, food allergies, and so forth.”
