Spring 2012 AnnouncementsSpring 2012 titles—Adult and Children’s
Issue: Jan. 23 2012 (Adult), Feb. 20, 2012 (Children’s)
Deadline: Dec. 5, 2011
Needed: Information on adult trade titles (new titles only; no reprints!) being published in all formats between Feb. 1, 2012, and July 31, 2012, and children’s trade titles (new titles only; no reprints) being published between Jan. 1, 2012 and June 30, 2012. Publishers are invited to enter their data online at publishersweekly.com/spring2012submissions.
By registering through the above-mentioned link, publishers will find an easy-to-use data-entrance tool powered by Edelweiss. Publishers will be able to enter title information (title, subtitle, imprint, series, author or other category of contributor, price, pub date, print run, and format, along with description of the book, author bio, and jacket or interior art). They will also have the opportunity to write a 50-word maximum “PW Pitch” for each title. As a new feature, publishers can enter the territories or markets in which rights to given titles are available. Again, deadline is December 5. We urge you to observe this deadline in order to be listed online and to have a chance to be in the print issues.
There will be no limit to the amount of titles that can be entered, as long as they meet the criteria as to dates of publication and suitability as a trade book. Please be sure that a BISAC category is listed for each title—this is mandatory. Please also observe the pub-month parameters; actual publication date is preferred; note that there is a one month difference for Adult vs. Children’s, and all titles outside those respective parameters will be rejected for online listing and print issue consideration. Also, no reprints, please—new books only. PW reserves the right to edit entries for consistency and concision. The online entries will be accessible via the PW Web site on approximately Jan. 23 for Adult and Feb. 20 for Children’s, free and browsable for all PW subscribers. This information will form the basis of our print announcement issues in which, for the adult issue, we will provide a synthesis of the upcoming season’s highlights across categories and genres, and for the children’s, a comprehensive presentation of the season’s new titles. For questions, contact Michael Coffey at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dick Donahue at email@example.com for Adult; and John Sellers at firstname.lastname@example.org for Children’s. For technical issues with the online entry process, you may also contact Jen Slajus at email@example.com.
