My First Books for the Education Market

This was a fun package to open last week. Two books in Capstone Press’ new series about horses. It was pure coincidence that the first books they asked me to write were about horses. They didn’t know that I’ve been a lifelong horse lover/owner and that I spent my youth in horse show rings.

Capstone Press is an institutional or education publisher. They market primarily to the school and public library market, though their books are available through Amazon and other retailers online. They produce fabulous books and I think girls will be especially drawn to these.

Back in 2010, I interviewed Laura Purdie Salas about working with education publishers. If you’d like to know more about how they differ from trade publishers, I’ll let Laura’s words explain. click here.
