People will always love stories, and, regardless of the format, librarians will always look to us to help them sift through it all.
Director of Library Marketing Talia Sherer coordinates the library marketing activities of Macmillan’s adult publishers, which include St. Martin’s Press, Henry Holt, Tor/Forge, Minotaur, Picador, Farrar, Straus & Giroux, and Flatiron Books. Talia was chair of the Association of American Publishers (AAP) Trade Libraries committee for four years and was proud to be named a 2010 Library Journal Mover & Shaker!
"Sure, if you read Talia’s gory favorites, you’ll find the occasional spleen enjoying the open air rather than resting quietly wherever it belongs inside our bodies, but beyond that, you’ll also find a bunch of richly satisfying stories peopled by multidimensional characters who will make you think as much as they make you retch." —Booklist (5/10/2011)
And when authors let her down, they know it,
"I'd like to apologize to Talia Sherer, Macmillan's Library Marketing Manager. I know this book isn't gory enough for you, Talia. I promise to make up for it next time." —Chelsea Cain, in THE NIGHT SEASON (see Acknowledgments)
Native Tucsonan Anne Spieth (rhymes with "teeth") works with Talia as the Digital Manager of Library Marketing and has more than a decade of bookselling, marketing, and design experience. When she's not at work you can find her buried in a book (with or without her little reader), baking, listening to music, and obsessing about pop culture. She blogs daily about books of all genres here at MacmillanLibrary.com and like Talia, has a love of gory thrillers. She's the current voice of @MacmillanLib, but you can also find her on Twitter @annedianajones.
