Posted on July 19 by Kyle in News

Are you ready for a history lesson in Canadian publishing? Today we’re talking to someone who’s been in the business for a very long time, Dundurn’s manager of contracts and administrative services, Kirk Howard’s executive assistant, and our colourful resident fashionista, Sheila Douglas.

“I’ve been working for 44 years,” Sheila says, “And exactly half of that I’ve spent in publishing.”

#InsideDundurn with Kendra

Introducing one of the newest additions to Dundurn’s marketing team, meet Kendra. If anyone fits the idiom of “wearing many hats”, it’s her. Not only is she a publicist, but also Dundurn’s marketing administrator.

“As a publicist, I work with authors for everything marketing, which is a new thing for me at Dundurn,” Kendra says, “As the marketing administrator, I’m in charge of all our metadata, making sure it’s correct, put out on time, stuff like that. I also help with proofing and copy-writing.”

#InsideDundurn with Kate

Meet Kate, she’s the Marketer here at Dundurn. She’s basically the woman who makes sure marketing’s ideas become a reality. “I work with the marketing team to develop marketing plans and make sure they are executed as expected.”

Definitely the person you want on your side when it comes to planning ahead.

She’s also responsible for organizing and preparing for the many events Dundurn attends every year. And, of course, advertising.

If it seems like managing all of these can be a little like trying to wrangle an octopus at times… it is. But that’s the fun part.

Dundurn Press is officially the first Canadian publisher to incorporate Thema classifications for all book and ebook records, it was announced today. The innovation, which makes the company’s title classifications compatible with booksellers worldwide, will position the Toronto-based publisher more strategically in the global market and help make its titles more visible to readers abroad.

Even in an age where data flows like water in a stream and goes out of date the moment it sits still, it’s still a huge deal when a publishing house receives final approval on a catalogue.
