Anouska Jones is the Publisher at EK Books, the children's picture book imprint of Exisle Publishing. Launched in 2013, and with the motto ‘Books with heart on issues that matter', this boutique imprint is now home to nearly 50 titles and the list is distributed in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, US and Canada.
Anouska has almost 25 years' experience in book publishing and in that time has worked in every genre from self-help to military history, from cookery to travel. Children's books have always been a particular passion, however, so working with EK's authors and illustrators is pretty much her dream job.
Anouska will be looking at picture book manuscripts and illustration portfolios.
Note from Anouska when booking: '
'We do like our books to have an underlying message but one that's delivered via a beautiful, well-crafted story and most definitely not in a didactic way. '
