One on One Session with Lonnie Hull Dupont, Editor at Revell: Taking Book Pitches for Revell (a division of Baker Publishing Group)


Click here to register


Lonnie Hull DuPont is Executive Editor for Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.  This publisher publishes mostly Christian-based books, but Revell division also publishes books for the general market.  Revell publishes at least once a year a new book that is pet-themed, and DuPont wants to hear pitches for such books.  These books are for adults but are not unsuitable for younger readers.  Note that Revell does not publish gift or art books.  Would consider fiction -- cozy mysteries with cats or other adult novels with animals as a side character.
