Much like the inspiration for Paloma Books (an imprint of L&R Publishing, LLC), an adorable four-year-old child we met just about the time we decided to add a children’s book imprint to our publishing company, we’re rather new to the world. In many ways, we too are learning to walk, talk…and having a lot of fun doing so. Fortunately, Paloma Books’ parents have over 15 years in the publishing industry and are passionately bringing that expertise to this new venture. We strongly believe that success in one genre can lead to success in another.
Our authors may not yet be internationally renowned or have a New York Times bestseller they can boast about, but they definitely know and care about children and children’s literature. They are parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and professional authors who have written wonderful stories to be read aloud to little ones at night. Or, to be read by younger children who are just discovering the magic of books. Or, something that will challenge and educate older children, inspiring them to learn more about their world, their history, their potential.
Our mission is two-fold: 1) To publish books that are fun, educational, and age-appropriate for children everywhere and 2) To provide a place for new and experienced children’s authors alike to get their work polished, published, and distributed. (If you are such an author, please visit our Submissions page and then contact us.)
So, welcome to Paloma Books and thank you for the opportunity to grow!
