Roughly a year after the Amazon Children's Publishing division launched, it has announced two new imprints.
Two Lions will be home to picture books, chapter books and middle-grade fiction, and Skyscape will be devoted to titles for young adults, encompassing works from both established authors and new voices. Margery Cuyler is editorial manager for Two Lions, and Tim Ditlow is editorial manager for Skyscape. Amazon Children's Publishing's general manager is Amy Hosford; Larry Kirshbaum, publisher for Amazon Publishing, oversees the editorial leadership for the company's Seattle and New York adult imprints, as well as Amazon Children's Publishing.
Amazon Publishing acquired more than 450 titles from Marshall Cavendish Children's Books in late 2011 and Cuyler, who had been publisher of MCCB (and is also an author), retained her title when she joined Amazon at that time. Ditlow came on board as associate publisher of Amazon's children's publishing unit in January of last year.
