Publishing Schedule Includes Ten Landmark Children’s Titles, Features First Release from Pioneering LGBTQ Imprint RainbowKidz
Emmy Award-winning Don Hoffman, a veteran children’s author whose 24 books have sold more than two million copies, is proud to announce the 2016 Publishing Plan for Peek-A-Boo Publishing Group (PABPG) in association with digital media partner Brightline Interactive and Chicago’s Independent Publisher’s Group (IPG), the original and second largest independent book distributor in the United States.
Beginning with Find Your Music in April 2016, the coming year will see the publication of ten of Peek-A-Boo’s groundbreaking children’s titles through IPG’s extensive network—in hardcover, paperback, and e-book formats. One of these titles include A Very Special Snowflake, which has sold over one million physical copies and generated over 20,000 downloads on the app store. Through a partnership with Brightline Interactive, Peek-A-Boo will create two additional mobile applications to compliment select titles in 2016.
“In 2016, Peek-A-Boo will take our readers on journeys that span the globe from New York City to Zimbabwe,” said Hoffman. “We will introduce them to a range of fascinating characters that will both delight and educate. These ten titles represent the best of innovation and inclusion in contemporary children’s literature, and we cannot wait to for readers to join us on this adventure in the year ahead.”
Peek-A-Boo is an exciting new approach to children’s publishing, focused on producing works that tell enduring tales and celebrate diversity. Among its imprints are Peek-A-Boo, for children 0–4, See-Saw Publishing, for young readers 4–8, and Rainbowkidz, a revolutionary imprint dedicated to telling loving and affirming stories that highlight gay and lesbian families.
