After three years in development, I'm so happy to tell the world about Swatch! She pubs in early 2016 with Balzer + Bray. PW announcement here:
"Alessandra Balzer of HarperCollins imprint Balzer + Bray pre-empted world rights to Swatch, Color-Tamer, a picture book by Julia Denos that marks her debut as an author-illustrator. It tells of a girl named Swatch who wants to harness the power of colors so she can create her own masterpiece – only to find that colors have a will of their own. The book is slated for winter 2016; Brenda Bowen of Sanford J. Greenburger Associates was the agent."
Serif steals title page. This whole thing's gone belly up.

Ah, the loukoumades! Feeling just a little more "Denos" today. #greeklove
Usually it takes a pile to get one picture book spread right.
Color in the city.
My husband @akaperly new game w/ Harmonix team just announced! "A City Sleeps" follows Poe, the youngest member of The Silk, an ancient clan of dream exorcists...when the residents of SanLo fall into an endless slumber, only Poe can rescue them from a never-ending nightmare." Congrats guys!
