Swoon Spotlight: Kate J. — Thoughts on Publishing
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 noon to learn more about Kate, her job, and her thoughts on life in publishing.
Common misconceptions about book publishing.
That editors read for a living. If only. I spend far less time reading than I would like and most of it happens on the train or at home on evenings and weekends just like the rest of the world.
If you could have any other job in book publishing for one day, what would it be?
School and Library Marketing. I love librarians!
Funniest way you’ve heard a friend or family member describe your job?
I honestly can’t think of a single thing! My family is full of book people who mostly get it. Here I am with my sisters reading in the back of our station wagon during summer vacation when we were kids.
