Dominique Sandis - Editor

Athens, Greece

Highly experienced developmental and acquisitions editor of children's and ya books many of which have been awarded in Greece and abroad

Overview

I am a highly experienced developmental and acquisitions editor of children's and ya books many of which have been awarded in Greece and abroad. I edit in both English and Greek. I have a strong knowledge of foreign rights and international trends. In addition to foreign acquisitions through strong contacts with international agents, publishers (editors and rights contacts) as well as scouts, my involvement in the publishing process includes reading through the slushpile, building relationships with authors and working through the editorial process with them, commissioning artwork – working with illustrators, clearing rights, liaising with the pagination team, providing information to marketing and sales teams, etc. I have also been very proud to have books acquired reap both international and domestic awards. I have also been accountable for two license property accounts and their development (namely Barbie [Mattel] and Lalaloopsy [MGA]). I have a very strong commercial as well as literary eye, project manage with responsibility and success, but also have a strong instinct as well as a distinctive editorial taste that has been crucial in my development of both debut and standing authors. I love working with authors and helping them develop and grow their work. My "bestest" and most favorite moment is when I see readers enjoying books that I worked on along with its author and saw it grow from a "slushpile" manuscript into a finished book...

Oi Peripeteies tou Epitheoriti Shelock tou Selinou 1 - Sta Prasa!

Ioanna Bouldoumi

Είναι δαιμόνιος, ασυμβίβαστος, λίγο γκρινιάρης αλλά πέρα ως πέρα γοητευτικός. Μοιάζει με ήρωα βγαλμένο από τη μεγάλη οθόνη. Εκείνος όμως πρωταγωνιστεί σε μια κουζίνα που φιλοξενεί την Αστυνομική Διεύθυνση Ανατολικής Κηπουρικής. Κυρίες και κύριοι, ο επιθεωρητής Σέλοκ το σέλινο. Με τη βοήθεια της Ομάδας Άμεσης Βράσης, τις ευλογίες του παπα-Στίτσιου, και τα υπονοούμενα μιας βδέλλας μορταδέλας, θα... read more

Γιασμίν. Μια ζωή από την αρχή

Merkoyrios Aytzis/Μερκούριος Αυτζής

Ένα κορίτσι, η Γιασμίν... Ένας σκυλάκος, ο Χνούδης... Τα βλέμματά τους θα ανταμώσουν κι αμέσως μια πολύτιμη αγάπη θ' αρχίσει να γεννιέται. Η Γιασμίν είναι προσφυγάκι και δεν έχει γονείς. Τους έχασε στο ταξίδι τους προς την ελευθερία... Ο Χνούδης ζει σ' ένα σπίτι όπου περισσεύει η αγάπη... Στο σπίτι αυτό, κοντά σε ανθρώπους που ξέρουν να αγαπούν, η Γιασμίν θα αρχίσει μια ζωή από την αρχή.
