Swoon Spotlight: Rachel P. — Odds and Ends
As part of our ongoing effort to give you a glimpse behind the scenes of publishing, we have a new feature on our blog: Swoon Spotlight! Every week we’re going to introduce you to a Swoon Reads staff member, who has volunteered their time, energy, and enthusiasm to the imprint—while still being amazing at their regular jobs! This week we are featuring Rachel P. Check back every day at 2pm to learn more about Rachel, her job, and her thoughts on life in publishing.
What does your desk look like on any given day?
Big piles of books, endless post-its – a mess, basically. At the moment there are also several bottles of bubble mixture shaped like champagne that I bought for a pitch.
What’s a book you wish you’d worked on?
Eleanor and Park – we publish Fangirl in the UK and I adore Rainbow Rowell’s writing.
What piece of advice would you give your younger self?
Don’t sweat the small stuff.
