Rachel Kramer Bussel speaks with Julia Richardson, Editorial director at Simon & Schuster Children’s Aladdin Paperbacks:
Within those categories, what types of books are you looking to acquire, and what topics don’t you want to see?
I’m looking to acquire middle grade series. These are series for kids ages 8-13. Since we’re talking paperback, we don’t do much of any single title fiction. So, we’re always looking for series — at least four or six titles to start. Specifically, I would love a great horse series. Something unlike anything currently out there.
