Hen&ink Services: Scouting

Hen&ink offers book scouting for children’s and YA books written in English to foreign publishers. If you are seeking scouting support for your publishing house, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact scouting [a t] henandink [d o t] com for more information.

We currently work with Editions de la Martinière in France on their children’s lists: Le Seuil Jeunesse and de la Martinière Jeunesse (DLMJ). Working as a scout/acquiring editorial consultant, Erzsi Deàk launched the first DLMJ list with DLMJ publisher and continues to work hand-in-hand with the editorial and publishing directors on the the two children’s (picture book through teen and up into tasteful New Adult titles). Popular titles are anything by Simone Elkeles, Bree Despain’s DARK DIVINE trilogy, The Books of Elsewhere by Jacqueline West. Hot off the press are THE THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J. Maas (KELEANNA en français) and SMELLS LIKE DOG by Suzanne Selfors (HOMER en français) and the LAST DOGS series by Christopher Holt (CLAN DES CHIENS en français). A few other titles are pictured below. For more about Editions de la Martiniere and le Seuil jeunesse, please visit:
