Aspiring artists everywhere, rejoice: prolific artist and educator extraordinaire Mark Crilley is back at his teaching best! Those familiar with his YouTube art channel know how valuable his weekly tips and techniques are. And soon there will be two more instruction books to give even more in-depth expertise.

Pam Wissman at F+W has acquired THE MARK CRILLEY GUIDE TO DRAWING HANDS and HOW TO DRAW MANGA HAIR—two essential components in bringing your visual work to life. Mark is hard at work preparing these books for publication, so stay tuned for them soon on bookshelves everywhere.

Congratulations, Mark!

Some wishes are granted instantly, and others take . . . a little bit longer. Today we are here to celebrate the latter: a wonderful wish of a book deal that has been in the works for a while. And for this reason, it's so nearly ready that it is available for preorder already!

But I shouldn't get ahead of myself. Fans of Anna Staniszewski know and love her fast-paced, heart-warming, hilarious books (and if you don't, you should start reading right away!), and will be thrilled to discover all of these things and more within the pages of her latest winner.

SECONDHAND WISHES tells the story of a girl who stumbles upon a bag of wishing stones at her local thrift store. Great news, right? Well . . . there's a catch: the stones have already been used once. And that past wish-magic? It's not all gone . . .

This delightful middle-grade adventure was acquired by Erin Black and Amanda Maciel at Scholastic Press, and will be on bookstore shelves everywhere on January 29, 2019. And if you place your pre-order now, you can begin reading that very day. What are you waiting for? Enjoy!

Huge congrats, Anna!
