New Additions to the Education-Related Publishing Companies List

I've had a couple of companies brought to my attention recently that would make good additions to the list. Thanks, Dorit, for letting us know about Six Red Marbles.

I also received an email from Ken Yablonsky inviting us to check out MathQueue, Inc. "We are a math-specific editorial company who has done recent work for Pearson, McGraw-Hill, and HMH. We have a good rapport with Words and Numbers, Element, and GGS. We would love to be added to your list of Education-Related Publishing Companies." Ken says the work is slow right now, but occasionally they get swamped and will keep this blog in mind when looking for freelancers.

Happy weekend!

Happy browsing!

Education Market

  • I am so sorry that I have not posted Educational gigs the past week or two. I will be back on next week but wanted to let you know I had a valid reason.

1. New job working as the nurse in a residential facility for children- afternoons, writing in the morning with more gusto.

2. Participating in blog tours for Nancy I. Sanders and her book America's Black Founders. It is a great book for teachers and on her blog tour she gives tips on breaking into the book market for kids. Visit her site at

3. Doing book reviews for Mary DeMuth's new book THIN PLACES. It is a wonderful book for those looking for healing from abuses and problems especially from childhood.

So, again, sorry. I will say that as I scanned the job posts myself, nothing struck me so hope for new links next week. Thanks for understanding and blessings for a great writing week.

Too Many Warnings
