Rachel Chou [Associate Publisher, Celadon Books]
“I am the Associate Publisher of Celadon Books. In this role, I oversee all marketing, publicity, and integration with sales.
Celadon Books aims to create a list that includes a wide-ranging selection of fiction and non-fiction, from page-turning thrillers to literary novels, works of history and psychology, narrative nonfiction and memoirs. The common denominator is that we aim to publish books of quality with commercial appeal. Our experienced team understands the potential for these titles, whether it’s reaching lifelong fans of a particular genre, generating buzz for a debut author, or appealing to readers looking for a thought-provoking journey.”
“[Picking a favorite is] like picking your favorite child! Since I am not typically a thriller reader it has been a lot of fun to work on THE SILENT PATIENT, A NEARLY NORMAL FAMILY and THE WHISPER MAN.
I really loved Jane Harper’s THE DRY. My bookclub chose it last year and we really enjoyed it.”
Rachel loves libraries:
“Growing up in Bethlehem, PA, the library was a weekly visit during my childhood years. My mother tells me that when I was a toddler I had one particular book that I wanted to check out every time I went. The book I was in love with had no words so she had to make up the story and try to recall every detail over and over again. I only remember how much I loved the cozy and safe feeling I had every time we pulled into the library garage.”
