As the title of the blog suggests, I work at a small press. I work very long hours. I rarely get time off (this includes weekends). I get paid jack shit. I buy my own health insurance. I do it because I fucking love it. I do. I love books. I love authors. I love the publishing industry.
Sing it, sister. We’re not about bashing our authors (and it usually is just one or two out of the 30 or so I’m dealing with at any one point), but it’s a gentle way to get a laugh or make light of a tough situation.
Sure. Which precise “all” are you referring to?
Thanks to JR for the submission.
Seeing that “There’s Nothing Here" notice where her page used to be is so sad…
Still so many emotions about how it all went down.
Such a travesty
In honor of life in publishing.
I know we all make mistakes but if you get someone in publishing’s name wrong on a reply email, you officially must prostrate yourself on the Altar of Dumbass.
Agreed. And the excuse that, “it’s an oddly spelt name/not a common name” is invalid when I’ve signed off in the original email with the correct spelling of my name!
Story of my life. In person I can forgive people more because I DO have a weird name. But in email where it’s right there in the signature, one, maybe two inches lower?
