Days of the Dead — Ebook

  • Great for Halloween and Day of the Dead promotions!
  • Answers a need in an underserved market: Mexican Americans made up 10.9% of the United States population as of July 2013 (that number is likely higher now), but less than 2% of the children’s books published each year feature Latinx characters (of any Hispanic country of origin). Mexican American children are eager to read stories featuring kids like them, and the relative lack of stories meeting this need leaves a hole in the market that we can fill with this book.
  • Timely immigration themes: With immigration and refugee issues the subject of heated political debate and news coverage, and Donald Trump's border wall constantly in the news and Donald Trump's border wall between Mexico and the United States in the works, Days of the Dead's nuanced exploration of the real issues facing both documented and undocumented immigrants is more relevant and in demand now than ever. The massive critical and popular success of books like Alan Gratz's Refugee shows that middle grade readers are hungry for books that tackle the difficult issue well.
  • We Need Diverse Books: Current publishing trends show that there's a huge demand for well-researched books with main characters of color.
  • Potential to tie in with upcoming Disney movie: Disney is set to release a movie which heavily features Day of the Dead traditions, Coco, in 2017. While Americans have always been fascinated with Day of the Dead traditions, this movie is likely to spike interest in the holiday, which we can capitalize on with this book.
  • Beautiful writing: Gorgeously crafted, heartachingly tender, and above all else incredibly warm, this is a story to treasure.
  • Award and state list potential: Kersten Hamilton’s books consistently receive starred reviews and are recognized on Indie Next lists and in trade publications. With the strength of this book’s writing and its timely subject matter, it is a strong candidate for awards and inclusion in state lists, which guarantee sales for years.
  • Sensitive exploration of faith and religion: Though religion plays a role in a huge number of children’s lives, it rarely plays a major role in children’s books for the trade market. Like 22% of the United States population, Glory and her family are Catholic, and their religion is explored sensitively and thoroughly. Catholic readers will appreciate seeing their experiences reflected in this book.
