Pineapple Press, an imprint of Globe Pequot
My Manuscript Wish List
Hello! My name is Lauren Younker, and I am the Acquisitions Editor for Pineapple Press, an imprint of Globe Pequot (the trade division of the Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group, Inc.). Pineapple Press is a Florida-based publication that publishes work only about Florida.
I love working in editorial and being involved in the publishing process from signing a new book or revision to publication. Working for Pineapple Press has allowed me to connect even further with the state of Florida, the place I was born and raised! As a South Floridian living in Boca Raton, it's great to read work from authors all over the state.
Founded in 1982 by June and David Cussen, Pineapple Press made a name for itself as a publisher of quality books on Florida and the American Southeast. Most of our subject areas include gardening, nature, art, folklore, history, travel, and real estate law, among other subjects. Pineapple also publishes some children's books and a small amount of Florida-specific fiction, including the famous Cracker Westerns books. The list is predominantly nonfiction, but I am trying to break into the fiction sphere little by little. The best-selling A Land Remembered (1984) by Patrick D. Smith is a Florida public school staple in history classes.
Fun facts about me:
I have a cat named Sarada and she's my editing buddy. Whatever I read, you can expect her to be up on my desk or my lap joining me! I love living in Florida and being able to go outside year-round, and I love going to the beach.
When I'm not working, you can find me reading, watching movies or tv, playing video games, or going out and trying new restaurants in Miami. I've recently picked up cross stitching and love it! I also love being around animals and have been vegan since 2014 (and was a vegetarian for years before that!). If I wasn't working in the publishing industry, I would be working with animals.
