Charlesbridge publishes high-quality books for children, with a goal of creating lifelong readers and lifelong learners. Our books encourage reading and discovery in the classroom, library, and home. We believe that books for children should offer accurate information, promote a positive worldview, and embrace a child's innate sense of wonder and fun. To this end, we continually strive to seek new voices, new visions, and new directions in children's literature.

In 2010 Charlesbridge acquired Imagine Publishing and expanded our children’s picture book list with books that included CD performances by notable personalities such as Peter Yarrow, Judy Collins, Kenny Loggins, and Neil Sedaka. Imagine Publishing also brought Charlesbridge into the adult trade publishing business with an eclectic list of nonfiction titles and cookbooks, as well as a popular list of puzzle books.

Cranthorpe Millner logo Cranthorpe Millner

250 copies • Partial manuscript.
Cranthorpe Millner operates a hybrid publishing model. This means, should an author pass our editors’ strict filtering system, we can offer different kinds of agreements depending on the author and the manuscript. With some authors, we work under a ‘traditional’ model, whereby we cover the full cost of publication and the author is offered industry-standard royalties (8-10%). To some authors, we offer what we call a partnership or contributory agreement, whereby the author is asked for a financial contribution so that we may share the risk and enter into a partnership together to publish the author’s book. In this case, the author receives around 60-75% royalties.

    Looking forward to it Ellie ! No pressure, chill. I would put money towards a husky university in Canada, if it comes to that ! Love your writing.

    Every single damn piece of your writing I've enjoyed more than you know...this isn't really a pay-it-forward, but more like a pay-you-back for allowing me to read your work for free. Plus, you're like my spirit animal. Don't let the doubts get you down...you can SOOO do this Ellie!!

    Ellie, being in Canada myself, I have to warn you that if you 'run away to Canada' that won't free you from writing this book. I love your outlook on life so much that I would track you down at your new astronaut university, drag you away from the dog pack and force you to finish it ;-) I love who you are and how you express it in words as I know thousands of others do so please, keep writing and above all, keep smiling.

    Hugs,
    John

    Follow your dreams despite the attitude of men, I have a son and I have determined it's gotta be in their genes to view us as needing protection even though I was the only one in the house earning the money to keep us together. Listen and learn ways to get your ideas across to men, just takes a little longer for them to process --Maria Rose

    Hey Ellie!

    I stumbled upon your Medium page and loved your story on how men should not have a monopoly on vulgarity. I fell down the hyperlink rabbit hole and eventually landed on your Publishizer page.

    I love your voice and am SO looking forward to your book. As enticing as a husky dog astronaut university sounds, I hope you'll do the Right Thing (TM) and share more of your writing with us, your eagerly awaiting readers.

    I hope you're doing well! Greetings from good ol' Mexico.

    Ellie Guzman is a brilliant writer and the world queen of sarcasm. She can scorch your paternalistic, racist, body-shaming foolishness into a dry little cinder with her blasting blowtorch wit.
    Her high-impact prose demonstrates that she has mastered the art of writing truth that connects with universal experiences PLUS she's hysterically funny.
    She's made me laugh out loud many, many times and yet, when I've stopped laughing, I find that I've learned from Ellie.
    I want you to learn from her too.
    Buy her book.
    Now.
    Buy a couple of copies, like I've done.
    Buy ten.
    Buy twenty.
    Buy a hundred of them and give them away as gifts, like I'm planning to.
    Support Ellie's unique voice - you'll have done something truly worthwhile today if you do.

    Much love and best wishes from another, as yet, unpublished writer. Enjoy your stuff. A former resident of the Valley, I enjoy the L A references and your take on that world. Keep up the good work. (How's that for banality?)
