The Perseus Books Editor
I' m the group publisher of Avalon (an impressum of Perseus), comprising the guides of Rick Steves and Moon and the text books of Westview Press. My professional life began in 1982 with the publication of the first guidebook for traveling independently in China, then I worked as an New York based journalist for eight years before I returned to the publisher in 1990.
I' ve been editor of Avalon since 1999, guiding my Berkeley CA employees through Perseus in 2007 and Hachette in 2016. I' ve been posting and supporting since 1994 on-line (moon.com was initially started as aopher site ) and have been part of many facets of electronic change, as well as the electronic pub industry, SPR chapters and workflow.
I have been the publisher of Da Capo since the firm came to Perseus in 1999. Over the course of almost four years as an editorial journalist, I have purchased several hundred books in the field of publication, among them works by Nobel Prize-winning author Czeslaw Milosz, Pulitzer Prize-winner Mary Oliver and the important scholar Richard Dawkins.
With Da Capo I purchased and published books by best-selling writers Toby Young and Gordon Livingston. It seems I have an attachment to whimsical books like Louis Theroux' The Call of the Weird and to humour books like Dan Lyons' Options. Lately I've been doing more than my part of books about ageing and death, like Dr. Marc Agronin's The End of Old Age and Kevin Toolis's My Father's Wake, but I think this is just a stage and I'll come back to happier subjects soon.
I would like to find some good books on topics of interest to me in Russia and East Europe as well as on languages and terminology. I' m the editor of Basic Books. After eight years at Yale University Press, I started working for the firm in 2005. I' m mainly publishing in the historical area, with expeditions into the political sphere and domestic animals.
On Basic I have released New York Times best-sellers, among them Timothy Snyder's BLOODLANDDS, Leonard Sax's THE COLLAPSE OF PARENTING and DOG and CAT by John Bradshaw. I am a special admirer of great, research-oriented books of historical research that are driving the world into new territory - books like BLOODLANDS, Nicholas Stargardt's THE GERMAN WAR and Edward Baptist's THE HALF HAS NEVER TIL.
I' ve also got a light side - one of my first books at Basic was PRESIDENTIAL DOODLES and one of my favorite books is Bee Wilson's story of cooking, CONSIDER THE Fork. In 2009, I came to Basic Books as a chief journalist specializing in the sciences and maths after working as a Senior Writer for the American Museum of Nature Conservation, Smithsonian Books, then associated with HarperCollins, and SeedMagazines.
On my first day at Basic Books I was met by a review of my sale last weeks, full of scientific books like Doug Hofstadter's Gödel, Escher, Bach, which were twenty to thirty years old but were still sold every wee. These books gave me the liberty to follow my own view of what non-fiction could be.
On Basic I have written books that shape the discussion, among them Alone Together by Sherry Turkle, the Financial Times Robots of the Year by Martin Ford and The Creative Destruction of Medicine by Eric Topol. However, I also write many books just for fun, such as Ed Frenkel's Love and Mathematics, Thor Hanson's Triumph of the Sami, Leonard Susskind's Theoretical Minimum and Eugenia Cheng's How to Bake Pi.
I' m the editor of Running Press, a place I've been calling "home" for 14 years. I' ve bought several New York Times best-sellers, among them You are a Badass by Jen Sincero and Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin, The Sneaky Chef by Missy Chase Lapine and Fabulicious! by Teresa Giudice.
My favourite are unusual and nervous vocals and books with useful contents hidden under their funny packets. I' m particularly interested in the category "bizarre self-help", but also in the areas of life style, memoirs, popular art and cuisine. Prior to Running Press, I worked as an editorial assistant at Crown/Three Rivers Press and Dutton/Plume Inprints.
I' m in charge of the Running Press Kids Impressum, which concentrates on on-board books, illustrated books, non-fiction, literature and YA books. I' m looking for books that arouse interest and creative spirit and hit the reader where he is. My main emphasis is on design-oriented, high-quality, new books for kids and young people that inspire them to read and discover.
I am looking for funny and entertaining books on boards, cordial, funny and varied books, non-fiction that inspire inquiries and amazement, and character-based, linkable MG and YA fictions with a focus on true self-expression and development. Before joining Running Press, I was an editor at Sky Pony Press, an impressum of Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.
I' ve cut in all styles, from storybooks to YA. Since 2002 I have been working for Da Capo Press and since then I have built up a nonfiction book collection that deals with the topics of literature, folk art, biographies, memoirs and a little more. If there is an overarching topic, it is a counter-cultural one; I also appreciate skilful narrations that make old histories new again by coming closer to them from a previously unchecked view.
A few of the best-sellers I have released are I Am Brian Wilson by Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, NOFX by the punkband NOFX and Jeff Alulis, Seven Deadly Sins by Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Iron Man by Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath, The Portable Atheist by Christopher Hitchens and the bestseller classics Why Does E=mc2 by Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw.
I am also proud to have worked on books with legendary authors such as Lou Reed and Buddy Guy, as well as the famous comic Doug Stanhope and the writer Allen Ginsberg. Before Da Capo Press, I worked as an editor for William Morrow and HarperCollins. I joined Da Capo Press in 2001 and have acquired and published books mainly in the fields of historical, medical and biographical studies.
I' ve worked with a number of bestsellers and award-winning writers at Da Capo, among them Alex Kershaw (The Bedford Boys and The Longest Winter), Patrick K. O'Donnell (We Were One and Dog Company), Harlow Giles Unger (Last Founding Father and John Quincy Adams), Stanley Weintraub (Pearl Harbor Christmas), William C.
David Davis (Crucible of Command), Thomas Fleming (A Disease in the Public Mind), Stephen Harding (The Last Battle), Steve Fainaru (Big Boy Rules) et Brian Murphy (81 Day Below Zero) et Gregg Zoroya (The Chosen Few). I am always looking for multi-feature Da Capo projects: knowledgable, dedicated and dedicated writers, lavish, textured characters-based tales and tales with a touch of response in today's aura.
Much of my most popular books have a very powerful story about common men in exceptional conditions, such as common soldier trapped in the cross-hairs of time. I' m editor-in-chief at Westview Newspaper, where I work on the American Politics and Middle East Studies list. When I was a child, I thought I was going to be a lecturer, but I did an apprenticeship at a college newspaper in the middle of my youth and my older years and fall in love with the world of editing.
Eleven years ago I started my scientific publisher carreer as an editor's secretary at Bedford/St. Martin's on the communication/media scientist lists and have not been looking back since. It is my pleasure to work with our writers to design and create books that make serious and stringent scholarly research available to our Ph.
Though I am an acquisition journalist, my favourite part of the work is the design phase, where I work with the writers once a proposal is completed to find out how best to organize and present the materials so that the student can make the most of them. A few of the books on my list I am most proud of are Women and Politics, Inequality in America, political advertising in the United States, theories of the political process, a brief Middle Eastern story, the Arab Spring and a modern Middle Eastern story.
The work on collegiate text books is so satisfying for me because it combined my two love trainings and books - and I felt like I was reaching a second (and third) deg! I' m a senior editor at PublicAffairs, where I specialise in story and big-idea articles in various catagories. My writers include a number of reporters, professionals and personalities from the world of politics, such as Garry Kasparov, Martin Seligman, Rick Ankiel, Gregg Easterbrook, Anya Kamenetz, David Sax and Peter Pomerantsev.
I' ve released award-winning writers and local and national best-sellers. Favourite topics are political, topical affairs, historical, scientific, business and sporting, and I am most impressed by my inspiration of inspiration, great story telling and in-depth knowledge. My love for classical movies led me into the world of publication. It was the first time that I purchased Lucy at the Movies, the first Lucy at the Movies, about Lucille Ball's film.
I am enthusiastic eleven years later that I am still working on books about the movie and other topics for which I became passionate in the following years. I' m working on coctail books, among them Andre and Tenaya Darlington's The New Cocktail Hour. I have also created some wacky humour books like the novel with Jesus and the notorious Fart Dictionary by Running Press.
I' ve compiled a film and Hollywood related title listing (now through our publisher alliance with Turner Classic Movies) that covers Sharon Tate: I also work hard on franchising, manage our Harry Potter/Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them programme and have purchased a wide range of other brand lists, among them Doctor Who, Bob's Burgers, Elf on the Shelf, DC Comics Properties, A Christmas Story, Paddington Bear, Seventeen Magazines, Marie Claire and many others.
I' ve also authored several books, among them So Audrey, A Touch of Grace, Audrey and Givenchy and the upcoming Sophia Loren: I came to Basic Books in 2013 from Farrar, Straus and Giroux, and like my collegues I'm looking for top professionals (mostly scientists, but also journalists) who want to explore new paths and advance science.
I' m mainly interested in historical, political and contemporary events, but I also find space on my shortlist for everything from soccer (so far only in America) and traveling to virtual-game. Among the books I have published are Doug Egerton's 2017 Lincoln Prize-winning book The Lincoln Prize for Doug Egerton, ACLU National Legal Director David Cole's Engines of Liberty, and On Friendship by the respected thinker Alexander Nehamas.
Among the books to come are new stories about Islamic Spain, the French Revolution and the era of reconstruction; the biography of the Supreme Court of John Robert and Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; a 21 st cent. communist celebration; Roger Crowley's next ever beloved story of the Mediterranean mediaeval insurgency conflict and imperium; Andrew McCarthy's philosopher guidebook; and a textbook that examines the nature story and sciences of forests that have lived for millennia.
I' ve been with Running Press for nine years and have purchased articles with illustrations in a wide range of areas such as humour, popular art, gifts and novelties, lifestyles, house and home, eating and drinking and hobbies/how-to. I have been fortunate enough to have worked with some truly imaginative and gifted writers, and I have particularly enjoyed working on songs that are fun, fashionable or as a present that appeal to a thousand year old public.
I' m also working on our bestseller programme Miniature Editions and have purchased licences from Star Trek, The Office, Downton Abbey, Star Trek, and more. Coming to Running Press in 2007, I have a backgrounds in cooking books, handicrafts books, entertainment, lifestyles and other forums. Beginning working on cookery books on Doubleday Broadway, a Random House print, and after leaving New York for Philadelphia, I came to Running Press and later became the first cookery bookreader.
Remarkable tracks at Running Press are Backwards in High Heels by Tania Kindersley and Sarah Vine, Beard-nominated Come In We're closed by Christine Carroll and Jody Eddy, Date Night In by Ashley Rodriguez, Food in Jars by Marisa McClellan, by Zach Golden and many others I had the privilege to participate in the release.
I am a senior editor at Seal Press, where I purchase stories, fitness/sports, guides, recent news, policy, LGBTQ and feminist work. I' m most enthusiastic about books that unexpectedly take a closer look at general themes and educate the reader with new and expressive thoughts - whether the format is memoirs, hands-on instructions or manifestos. I' m always interested in unique vocals, unapologetically and irresistibly telling stories, from influential writers and inspirational sportsmen to nervous sexual and herbalists.
From my entry to Sheal in 2014, I have worked with pride on books ranging from The Big Fix, a moving reminder of the reconstruction of the lives of heroine abusers, The New Better Off, a thoroughly recounted and considered look at the developing importance of America's prosperity, to the upcoming Physical Disobedience, a guidebook on how to resist damaging climate zones through realist, effective self-care.
My first publisher position at Rodale, after a short period as an instructor of German at high schools, was the right place for me in the bookshop. I' ve got over two dozen years of editorial expertise. Throughout this period, I have designed, created, adapted and released printed and digital education materials for pupils and undergraduates.
Since October 2015 I have been a member of the Perseus editorial staff and have been working as an editorial assistant for the anthropology and social studies departments of Westview Press. I am an Acquisition Writer and I am always looking for new and committed initiatives to help us understand the way we are living in and how we can develop as better individuals and cosmopolitans.
I joined Westview Press in September 2015 and buy and edit books for our lists of our relationships and area work. A dilapidated university graduate with eight years of diverse publication experiences, working with Westview writers was the best of both worlds-it is my pleasure to find the best way to transform the wisdom and skills of our writers into available, appealing articles for both student and amateur use.
I am particularly pleased about Transformation Multilateral Diplomacy, an inside look at the UN Sustainable Development Goals, co-written by Kenya's UN Ambassador Macharia Kamau, Westview writer Pamela Chasek and David O'Connor. I am an acquisition editor for Moon guides and purchase tour and outdoor guides for tourist sites in the USA and around the globe.
I am also creating a Women's Studies mailing for Westview Press and managing the philosophy mailing for this masthead. Born in 2012, I worked for Avalon in various positions, among others as an associate editors for the Rick Steves Group. Coming to Running Press as an editorial journalist in 2016, I concentrated on the acquisition of illustrative non-fiction, which included life style, craft/DIY, food/beverage and trend-oriented wellbeing.
I am interested in the publication of illustrations and books, first at Yale University and then as an editorial at Abbeville Press, where I purchased and worked on edible and drink products with powerful graphic elements (including esters by James Beard nomination head of kitchen Jeremy Sewall), gift-oriented artwork histories and translation by leading national, international and international chefs.
I passionately partner with writers, performers and creative people to create cross-category books in original format and engaging work. Recently I have placed particular emphasis on designs that emphasize powerful feminist prospects, such as the forthcoming feminist icon cross-stitch, and books that provide a style based on the handicraft class, such as By Hand by the letter artist Miyuki Santo.
Most of my staff are first writers, and as an editorial staff member I like to work with them to produce nice books with gift ideas that use and enhance their current platform and successors, whether in the field of online publishing or in their areas of specialization. I' m studying to be a student of English, German and English, as well as German and English, German, History und Policy, Legal, Social Sciences, Media and Technology.
I have purchased books by writers such as Laurent Dubois, Bernard Harcourt, Alexandra Natapoff and Michael Willrich. Prior to coming to Basic Books in 2015, I worked at Harvard University Press, where I wrote for writers such as Elizabeth Hinton and Beth Simone Noveck. I' m a graduate in historical from Yale University. My purchases and work in a variety of subject areas, which include cookery and eating, diets and diets, physical activity, healthcare, business, self-help, education and interrelations.
I' m also working with in-house writers on revisions and updates to our backlists to keep our strong healthcare lists up to date with the latest research and latest developments. I am looking for more books for 20 and 30 year olds and am always looking for my next favourite biscuit recip.
In 2013 I came to Basic Books, where I work in the fields of literature, sociology, women's research and biographies and have purchased books by writers such as Ernest Freeberg, David Patrikarakos, Lisa Levenstein and John Holl.
