Update: New Office, No Brain

Those of you following along at home know that HarperChildren's moved offices this week. So you'll have to pardon the lack of enthralling posts for a bit longer, please--because I'm still trying to figure out which one of these boxes I packed my brain into!* Those of you with brains firmly in place, however, should take this moment to hop over to the Waxman Literary Agency blog, and soak up the wisdom and good humor of my pal Holly Root, who is offering some smart, well-reasoned, and well-explained thoughts about career planning for writers.

*Y'know, it's just occurred to me that for being a children's book publisher, we sure are sadly lacking in the area of elves, (either of The Elves and the Shoemaker variety or the Harry Potter House Elf variety) sprites, fairies, and other magical critters who would be really helpful when it comes to unpacking and organizing. Points to anyone who can locate some for us.


  1. Good luck with getting settled. Ugh, I've never had to move offices but I can only imagine how annoying it is. Just think of how nice and organized it will all feel once you are all unpacked.

    Thanks for the link. I'm going to check out the blog out right now.

    And good point on the elves... just imagine what Dobby could do with that place!

  2. I'll let you know when I locate a few. ;)
