Author Essay

Sometimes when you work for a big book company, there are so many books that you aren’t completely aware of every one your coworkers are publishing. I read about Harlot in Publisher’s weekly, and was so intrigued that I made a mental note to pick up a copy when it came out. A month later, I had completely forgotten that it was a Ballantine book and while pursing the stacks in a local bookstore, came across it and was still intrigued. Without looking at the imprint on the spine (that little logo that tells you who published the book) I bought it and started reading it on the subway. Fascinating! Everything you ever wanted to be told in Sunday School. It wasn’t until I read the acknowledgements that I realized it was our book!
