As our first year of Las Musas comes to a close we are thrilled to announce the expansion of our family tree with Las Musas Picture Books!
We are thrilled to launch this branch with the incredible talents of Alexandra Alessandri, Donna Barba Higuera, Zara González Hoang, Adriana Hernández Bergstrom, Joana Pastro, Yamile Saied MéndYamile Saied Mendezez, and NoNieqa Ramos all of whom will publish their debut picture books in 2019 and 2020 and beyond.
Perhaps you wonder why we didn't include picture books during our founding year. Believe us, it wasn't out of neglect. It was simply a matter of logistics. As debut MG & PB writers, we were overwhelmed with forming this group and trying to launch our books and careers and taking on this endeavor was more than we could do. Also, there was the concern that picture books are so different than MG & YA novels, we couldn't consolidate how to market us all together.
However, thanks to the wonderful Alexandra Alessandri who has agreed to spearhead this new branch, we are beginning to grow and learn how to do it so that our marketing efforts are beneficial to all. More than anything, we understand how important it is to have a community like Las Musas in children's publishing and we would be remiss if we couldn't incorporate PB.
Please help me in welcoming our new group of Musas! Visit their pages and add their work to Goodreads!
With love and esperanza,
