Adam O’Brien is an editor at Sterling Publishing specializing in a variety of non-fiction: all manners of memoir and humorous essay collections, in particular. We chat about the differences between working for a Big 5 house as opposed to a mid-sized one, how nice it is when a celebrity rumored to be a sweetheart actually IS a sweetheart (looking at you, Drew Barrymore) and how working in other areas of publishing convinced him that he truly belonged in the editorial department. Sterling Publishing is an innovative and forward-thinking publishing company committed to creating books that educate, inspire, and entertain. We also chat with former bookseller Tara Lehmann about the fallout from distributor Baker & Taylor's exiting the retail market, leaving indie bookstores scrambling and the big publishers licking their chops and falling all over one another to scoop them up. https://www.sterlingpublishing.com/
