Inside Dundurn with Margaret

Posted on December 21 by Kyle in News

If you’re looking for someone who enjoys talking books, you’re going to want to meet Margaret, our director of sales and marketing. She’s responsible for the company’s overall sales performance and marketing efforts, as well as overseeing a team of nine other people. Of everyone on the marketing team, she’s been at Dundurn the longest, starting in August 2007.

And that’s just her recent experience; she’s been in the book business for a long time, over 20 years so far.

#InsideDundurn with Shannon

If anyone is the authority on how to get published, it’s likely an acquisitions editor. So in that case, meet Shannon. Possibly one of the more glamorous jobs in publishing, Shannon’s job is to find and acquire books however she can. But unlike most people looking for a new book, she isn’t checking the local bookstore.

“Books can come from all kinds of places, really,” Shannon says matter-of-factly, “Literary agents, the slush pile, from any number of contacts. Sometimes authors that we’ve already published will refer others who are looking for a house.”
