My Last Day is Approaching!

…and it feels like Doomsday. I am really going to miss Berrett-Koehler. Hopefully I can get some more profiles written out so you can all meet the endearing and quirky characters that populate this house of publishing (and much literary nonsense).

This feels so final, especially since I just sent out several emails for my last meetings with staff, including the one below to Jeevan (click image to magnify)…my last days are in print! It’s for real now! *runs off and sobs in a corner*

Somewhat sad, but I love how official I sound in writing. And check out that email signature I've been sporting these last few months.

*dries tears with a Kleenex and gets over herself*

In other news, I’ve found two promising manuscripts after a pile of rejections. The one I found today compelled me to keep reading despite my tired, Friday-spacey mind. The author did her job in research, editing, and presenting a clearly organized narrative. In Jeevan’s words, I “appreciate the diligence and effort” she put into it. He’s great as a sounding board when I’m trying to phrase a response and synthesize my opinions, positive or negative. I’ve forwarded the proposal on to Neal to get his opinion, but I’ve already warned him I’ll fight for it. My days may be numbered, but I’m still a member of the BK Editorial Department!
