First, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Second, I’m officially employed in the publishing industry! I’m now the Publicity Assistant at Basic Books. This has been a long time coming for me (one year and three months of job hunting) and I’m ecstatic. In 2012 I graduated with a Master’s degree in Publishing, and I’m so happy to get a chance to work in the [only] industry I love. I also interned at Basic over the summer and really enjoyed my time there, so I’m happy I get the chance to come back.
I’m saying this in full disclosure of any books that I may review in the future. I will be staying away from reviewing any books publishing under the Basic Books imprint or any published by Perseus Books Group, etc.
I’m just so happy and excited to finally share the news with you. 2014 seems like it’s going to be a better year than 2013, and I can’t wait.
