Some Updates

Why, hello! It has been some time, hasn't it?

A lot has happened since I last wrote. Namely, I started a new job at Penguin Random House and moved to New York City. When I think about that -- when I see those words written on the screen -- I start to spaz. In a good way.

When I started this blog, I was a freshman at the College of William & Mary. I liked to write, but I thought I was going to be an archaeologist. I knew a lot about publishing thanks to my addiction to agent extraordinaire Janet Reid's blogs, but I hadn't considered it as a career path. Until, suddenly, I did.

I tried everything to make my way in publishing. I took a remote internship at a literary agency. I talked to industry professionals. I read, read, read. I went to the New York University Summer Publishing Institute. I took another internship. I applied to more jobs than I care to admit.

Then, it happened -- and here I am.

I still love to write, but I'm thrilled to join the industry. I'm eager for new adventures in publishing!
