So, I was holding out on you in my last post. Why? Because this news deserves its own!

I GOT A JOB. (Yes, a real one!)

I'll be joining Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers as an Editorial Assistant/Assistant to the Deputy Publisher. I could not be more excited. I loved everyone I met while I was interviewing, and I'll be doing what I love. How can I possibly improve on that?

Moving forward, SLB will be evolving as I figure out where to go from here. Of course, I'll still be talking about books, but I want to figure out how to do that in a way that's responsible and professional.

In other news, Gracie the MacBook and I are having a blast together. Anybody have app suggestions for me?


  1. yay!!

    and check our Reeder for a really slick RSS feed reader for os x

  2. Will do, Leo. See you tonight! :)

  3. Hm, not our, out. Not my program, though i wish it were, it's damn slick :)

  4. I said it on Twitter, but I'll say it again: Congrats!

    And now that we'll be working two blocks away from each other, I think it's time to actually meet! :-)

  5. Great news! Who will you be working for? (I only know a couple of editors over at Simon by name, but I'm curious if it's one I know)

  6. Laurel: I'll say thank you again! :) And yes. "Let's do lunch!" (I've always wanted to say that.)

    Emily: I'll email you that info if you want, but I'm going to keep their names off of here for now.
