Because we’re a small team, being self-motivated and proactive, able to work independently or collaboratively, is crucial. Bonus points for really liking books a lot and being nice.
Some of our more popular recent titles include the bestselling YA fantasy novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, the Edgar Award-winning mystery The Last Policeman, the legendary Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and classroom favorite William Shakespeare’s Star Wars. Our books are distributed worldwide by Penguin Random House.
