Acquisitions for Blue Whale Press

Blue Whale Press an imprint of Clear Fork Publishing focusing on picture books with STEM/STEAM themes. Learn more about me at http://clearforkpublishing/JackieKruzie 


I am open to all authors and illustrators including:

    new & established

    agented & unagented

    author only

    illustrator only


I am looking for:

    fiction with STEM/STEAM themes.

    non-fiction STEM/STEAM

    picture book biographies featuring lesser known figures


I like fast paced books that are fun to read aloud and educational without being didactic. Humorous books, especially those that weave in a joke or two for the adult reader, make my day. I love books that feature fun onomatopoeia that propels the story forward in a natural way. I would be open to a STEM focused short chapter book (less than 7,000 words) with a series option.

I am not the right fit for rhyming texts, novelty/board books, graphic novels, middle grade, or young adult.

Titles I like:

Pass Go Collect $200 by Tanya Lee Stone

The Owl Who Asks Why by Michelle Garcia Anderson

Marvelous Cornelius by Phil Bildner

Normal Norman by Tara Lazar
