Book packager and literary agency Stonesong has unveiled a new Web site and announced the addition of a new agent, Emmanuelle Morgen. The company has also tweaked its name, slightly, officially changing from The Stonesong Press to simply Stonesong.
Morgan, who was most recently an agent at Judith Ehrlich Literary, starts at Stonesong on January 5 and will focus on various categories--children's fiction, women's fiction and romance, historical fiction, YA fiction, and a handful of nonfiction areas like self-help and memoir. She joins partners Alison Fargis and Ellen Scordato, as well as Judy Linden and editorial assistant Sarah Passick.
Stonesong, which was founded in 1979, now has three divisions: literary agency, book packager and a custom publishing unit. Fargis noted that while Stonesong has been selectively custom publishing since its inception, Scordato "revitalized" the division in 2007 and, since then, the company has worked with some half a dozen clients "who have their own distribution systems for physical inventory."
