Abby Zidle and I had a candid chat at RWA in July, and we talked about everything. Abby is Associate Director of Marketing for Gallery Books, and is also a Senior Editor, as she worked in editorial for many many years. We talk about what’s changing in publishing and what’s changed over her career - from the process of writing and selling a book to the places you find that book in a store, or not.
What’s up with mass market? Trade? What does she love most about working in romance publishing. We are taking a 35,000-foot view here, and there’s a lot to discuss.
My favorite moment: “Your books and your life are so intertwined.”
