Nine-Tail Fox by Camille Picott

In 2011 I had the pleasure of working once again with Camille Picott, author of Raggedy Chan and the recently released Nine-Tail Fox. Both middle-grade children’s books, released through Picott’s Pixiu Press, belong to the Chinese Heritage Tale Series she is creating to make more ethnically diverse speculative fiction available for young people. »

Kudos

I’d sent my novel out to several agents, and a couple of them recommended I consult a book doctor. Erin was that book doctor, and eventually I signed with one of those agents, who was impressed by how much I’d been able to improve the manuscript.”
