I am actually quitting my job because of this.

I am developing a new royal crush on Queen Elizabeth II. 

When people stop writing, it’s one of two things - they are either really fucking happy or broken beyond repair.

When you live in the dark for so long, you begin to love it. And it loves you back, and isn’t that the point? You think, the face turns to the shadows, and just as well. It accepts, it heals, it allows.

But it also devours.


—Carver, Raymond. Late Fragment.  (via griefpet)

I love you.

Question: Do you think that you, Jason, would make a good king?

Jason: Hmm… I would try my best. I mean, it’s a lot! It’s a lot. I was vice president of my student council… in eleventh and I… I was a little overwhelmed. (x)

May I ask how'd you become Children's Marketing Executive in book publishing? Because I'm really interested in working at a publisher. Like,what degree did you get? Thank you so much

Publishing is one of those careers that can take ages to get into unless you have a lucky break (usually being in the right place at the right time). I studied Sociology (it’s a myth that you need to have studied English Language/English Literature). After/during university, I did a few (unpaid) internships at various publishers until I managed to get a paid internship. I then got my first job as a Marketing Assistant for a non-fiction publisher and stayed there for two and a half years until I got a job in children’s publishing, where I started three weeks ago as Children’s Marketing Executive.

It’s mainly about showing your knowledge of and interest in the publishing industry and your chosen area (and not just your love of books) plus a mixture of luck and determination.
