Today I am happy to be part of Sarah Lynn Scheerger's blog tour for her picture book Tip Tap Pop. Her agent, Deborah Warren from East/West Literary Agency, gives us some insight into Sarah and the changing market of children's publishing.
What was it about Sarah’s work that inspired you to offer her representation?
Sarah's solid writing was the first clue that we had someone special here. Then came the ability to get teen dialogue just right without going over to the dark side of current teen slang (which ages faster than a peach on a hot summer day),followed by her talent for creating a strong voice and plot; in particular, her facility with developing characters throughout the story with telling little details.
