    Flashlight Press

    I have found bits and peices on here about Flashlight publishing. They are a PB publisher and such. Although, I haven't came across anyone who has had any actual dealing with them. Anyone out there?

    I've heard of them before. Never submitted to them. I'm adding the link to Flashlight. I think there was an earlier discussion on these boards and someone did submit to them. I'll see if I can dig out the thread.


    ETA: Found the discussion. It was in the Children's forum.

    Thanks. That was the bits and peices I had previously found. But, I wanted a wee bit more information. Thanks though!

    Recieved a very polite, personalized rejection from the editor. She was kind enough to give me the name of a publisher she thought might be interested in my story. I e-queried her and heard back within a week. She also said that they are only publishing two books a year.

    Distributed by IPG. This means they have money and product.

    I queried a couple of books there. Got a R on the first one and a request to read the 2nd today. (They apparently put out 2 titles/year in hard cover.) Hopefully all will go well

    Their books are lovely (as I've reviewed more than a few) and they are one of the few picture book publishers who will buy long books. They use fantastic illustrators. And a writer I know who had a picture book published by them (Dotti Enderle/Grandpa for Sale) had this to say about her book with them on a recent discussion board: "GRANDPA FOR SALE was a Borders Original Voices selection, and is on the upcoming Arizona and Indiana state reading lists because of efforts made by Flashlight."

    They have a super tiny list. I've read all their picture books. They tend to be strongly family focused.
