theawkwardyeti asked: How does one get a job as an editor for a publishing company? Or just any job in a publishing company?

It needs some updating, but the career page of our Publishing Road Map is a good place to start. Hope that helps!

star-shyne-brite asked: HI! Have you ever seen or read a book (which I can't remember the author or the title) with a red, yellow, blue theme? It has two people (a boy and girl) on the cover and there's a plus sign with two colors which I'm pretty sure are red and blue. But I can't remember the title of the book. All I have is the description of what I saw on the cover :/ Do you happen to know the title of author? Hope you can answer, that's okay if you can't. Thanks!

All I can think of is Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, which doesn’t exactly match your description. Does this ring a bell for anyone?

So fucking pleased to see news of kdhart's YA book deal in Publishers Weekly today. Kate is one of the people who keeps yahighway up and running, which is an incredible resource to YA readers and authors alike. I’m a fan of them both. She has been so supportive of my work throughout my career and I am so excited about following hers and making room on my bookshelves for her debut. Which—check out that description—sounds AMAZING.
Congratulations, Kate!!!!
