I love, Love, LOVE it when an author lets me just go with an idea.When Ingrid first contacted me on Twitter, then we moved to the live chat window on my site, we kind of came up with a vague, abstract plan of some running shoes and a butterfly or... Read the rest of this post

Aidana, that's awesome. I didn't realize you were the AD at 4RV! Excellent. I'm really thrilled about having my book chosen for publication.
Comment by Penny Ehrenkranz on 6/8/2010 at 12:41 PM:
Glad to hear you're feeling better. I've been busy. I'm now editing at 3 small publishing houses. I've also had my first picture book accepted for publication at 4RV Publishing. Woo Hoo!

Go Aidana,
That's amazing..
Comment by Jescott 'Jesse and Scott' on 3/14/2010 at 5:58 AM:
Hope all's well with you (Just read Penny's comment that you were feeling a bit unwell). I'll have a word with a few woodland elves from one of our books to see if they can whisk up some magic cure-everything thoughts and send them your way.

Comment by Rafaela Perales on 3/16/2009 at 4:16 AM:
Hello, Aidana,
Your bio says that you are a literary agent. From what I have experienced so far, I believe I will require an agent. I have a completed and copywritten manuscript entitled "The Talking Totem Pole Stories" with the sequel already started, but I don't know how to get it published... more

Hi Aidana, How's everything going? Up here in NYS we are getting the fall colors. The chilly rain has moved things right along and soon winter will be at our heels. One thing about that season, once the holidays are over there are fewer distractions to keep me from writing. I leave in less than... more

Hi Aidana,
I really like your illustrations. The "Being Jacob" cover is awesome and captures the perils of the first day of school.

Comment by Crystal Dawn on 9/24/2008 at 12:40 PM:
I've just been browsing your page and wanted say hello. Looks great as usual.
Comment by Donna Varnes on 8/29/2008 at 6:23 AM:
you asked if there were any kiddie works and in fact I am pretty excited to have five of my childrens books finished. Xulon Press published THE COVE for me but they do not do color picture books so i am debating whether to go the traditional long wait, 8% royalty route or cut out the middle man. i... more
Comment by Ann Manheimer on 8/29/2008 at 12:16 AM:
Heh heh, yes the bosses keep me busy.
I'm in the middle of revising a middle grade novel, and it's an intriguing journey. Thanks for asking.
Very nice to meet you!
Comment by M. LaVora Perry on 8/28/2008 at 3:52 PM:
Got your message, Aidana!

To answer your question, I'm working with a coauthor and agent to sell a completed 7-book series titled TEEN SISTERS' HEALTH--A BODY, MIND, & SPIRIT WELLNESS GUIDE FOR GIRLS OF COLOR. Also, have a YA fiction WIP titled Hidden Jewel.
Comment by Fredricka (Freddie) Remza on 8/27/2008 at 6:46 PM:
Hi again Aidana,
Writing is coming along. I'm pretty much where I want to be in the story before I leave for Johannesburg in mid October. That's when my story family takes off for that country. I still have a lot of tightening up to do so I'll spend some of the next month working on that.... more
Comment by Colleen Serra on 8/27/2008 at 6:32 PM:
Hello Aidana,
I, too,find myself frustrated with a lot of the artwork that sits on the shelves of children's sections at the book stores. Children definitely judge a book by its cover and that should be considered!
My writing desk? Well, bits and pieces, mostly, of new projec... more

Yes he has the cutest red/blond hair and the dog is the size of a small horse.
Comment by Christine Norris on 8/27/2008 at 3:25 PM:
I handpicked Lylith, but the rest were picked by my publishers.
Comment by Christine Norris on 8/27/2008 at 2:43 PM:
Thanks, Aidana!
My covers are done by different people. Talisman of Zandria was done by Robert Nagy, Return to Zandria was done by Lylith, a very sweet girl from Spain, and The Crown of Zeus and The Ankh of Isis were both done by Christine Clavel.
Comment by Lisa Mcclafferty on 8/27/2008 at 2:01 PM:
How does one go about releasing a book more than once a year? Being new at this I don't know all the ins and outs. I am currently seeking a publicist to assist me with this and the future books,

Hi Aidana,
Very glad to meet you...I'm editing a biography at the moment - heavy edits from the copy desk. Hope your work is going well.

All best
