Beth Bruder Retires from a Lucky Life in Publishing

Posted on February 23 by Beth Bruder

Lucky — a word that genuinely expresses how I feel about my life in publishing.

Publishing is reading, or more accurately the love of reading. When you speak to anyone in this business they express their love of reading — something quite different from their love of the day-to-day business of producing a book. Most of us really don’t care what we read, as long as it transports us to another world. It could be magical fiction, true crime, a wonderful history, or whatever else you want.

Seeing the Whole Process - Part 1

Posted on February 22 by Kathryn in Teens

Publishing is an exercise in patience, collaboration, and organization. Everyone at Dundurn Press plays an important role in getting books from a raw manuscript to the finished product you pick up at your favourite bookseller!

I started working at Dundurn Press last September as the editorial intern. While I had completed a publishing program, and had a broad understanding of the industry, I was still completely surprised by the amount of time and team work it takes to create a book from scratch.

I wrote the fifth Dan Sharp mystery, The God Game, during the much-publicized political antics of what became known as the Ford Nation. Its self-proclaimed leader, Rob Ford, was then mayor of Toronto. Like many, I was appalled by his aberrant behaviour, but dismissed it as a passing phase in Canadian history. Not for a moment did I think it was just the beginning of what in many ways is now the defining ethos of our current political era.
