Spry Publishing’s list of diabetes books continues to grow. One of our top objectives this year is to expand our presence within the diabetes community, and to that end, we have some very exciting recent developments to report.
Our first printing of Kids First, Diabetes Second by Leighann Calentine arrived in our warehouse this week. We’re truly elated about the way that this book has come together and can’t wait to release it! Our official book launch will take place at the Friends for Life conference for children with diabetes, July 3¬–8. Leighann will appear in the OmniPod booth on July 6th and 7th, signing a special excerpt from the book that will only be available at the event.

In addition, we’ve recently signed with three heavy-hitters in the world of diabetes to produce books that will release in 2013.
- Gary Scheiner, MS, CDE, Owner of Integrated Diabetes Services, is writing a book about the hottest new trends in diabetes management. This publication will serve to educate patients and health-care professionals alike, covering a wide range of topics, including lifestyle approaches, medication innovations, monitoring and measurement, preventing and treating complications, and the Web movement.
- Respected diabetes activist, author, and journalist Moira McCarthy has signed with us to produce a book for parents of teenagers with diabetes. Moira is not only a tremendous writer who has successfully parented a teen with type 1 diabetes; she is also a seasoned author on the subject, having written four previous books, including The Everything Parent’s Guide To Children With Juvenile Diabetes.
- Scott Benner, author of Arden’s Day, is currently writing a book of life lessons from a stay-at-home dad. The book will address a variety of topics from the perspective of a hard-working father who has overcome significant challenges by maintaining a positive attitude and a relentless sense of humor. Scott’s writing is hysterical, honest, poignant, and true. A perfect Father’s Day gift, it’s scheduled to release June 2013.
