LEAPing Into the Future
"Having a small publishing house means you get to be picky about the books and authors you represent," saysShannon Delany (YA author and now publisher and owner of LEAP BOOKS, LLC). "You don't feel the pressure of filling a certain number of slots each year--you can truly make quality come before quantity."
Thanks to longtime Leap author, Judith Graves, an enthusiastic trio of experienced YA authors has joined forces to lead LEAP Books LLC into the future. Graves had recently begun developing the SHINE e-novella line, and seeing Delany comment on Facebook about possibly starting a small publishing house of her own, Graves suggested Delany join her. But things grew from there.
"We're leaping ahead with the growth of the SHINE e-novella line, but we're gladly maintaining the foundation Edwards gave us. We have a great backlist of books written by eager authors--they just need some more attention in the market. I'm proud of LEAP's history. If I wasn't and I didn't see huge potential in this company, I wouldn't be here. The authors in our backlist are talented--we have award-winners, NYT Bestsellers... What more can you ask for?"
