Swoon Spotlight: Kate J. — Odds and Ends
As part of our ongoing effort to give you a glimpse behind the scenes of publishing, we have a new feature on our blog: Swoon Spotlight! Every week we’re going to introduce you to a Swoon Reads staff member, who has volunteered their time, energy, and enthusiasm to the imprint—while still being amazing at their regular jobs! This week we are featuring Kate J. Check back every day at 2pm to learn more about Kate, her job, and her thoughts on life in publishing.
A neat mess. With half empty mugs of tea, and papers, and books, and crumbs from snacking at my desk. But I know where everything is.
What’s a book you wish you’d worked on?
I love Graceling by Kristin Cashore for many reasons, not the least of which is the swoon-worthy Po.
What piece of advice would you give your younger self?
Be bold. You’re better at life than you think.
