Marvelous Marketing

2002 and 2003 were busy years for me.
My book, TO FLY, THE STORY OF THE WRIGHT BROTHERS, came out from Clarion and suddenly I was in the hands of their marvelous marketing department. Marjorie Naughton is the wonderful head of the department. I still visit with her every year at Clarion booth when I attend ALA. Elena Murphy made most of the arrangements for school visits and other events for me. (She changed her name to Elena Melendy halfway through our time together.) And her lovely assistant was Molly O'Neill.

Now, Molly has gone on to be an editor!
First with the short-lived Bowen Press and now she is an assistant editor at Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Children's Books.

A week or so ago, another blogger interviewed her.
Not about editing.
But about her views on Marketing!
If you click here you'll learn lots about the marketing side of publishing. Having been one of the authors 'handled' by this marvelous marketing team I can attest to her expertise.
