This post is long overdue, but I wanted to share my experience meeting the lovely and geek-tastic Kat Kruger, the author of The Night has Teeth.
On January 29, a very rainy night, I met up with a few friends and book lovers at the quaint book shop called Type Books. They hosted Kat’s book launch and set her up in a space of her own, where her fans could get their books signed and have a chat with her. There was a table nearby with goodies: cupcakes, wolf paw chocolates, and Fierce Ink Press stickers. Continue reading →
Ever since Paper Droids, an online magazine that features everything geeky, wrote a review and held a contest for Kat Kruger’s The Night has Teeth, I wanted to pick up the book. I have become good chatting buddies with the author via Facebook and Twitter since I’m responsible for the social media platforms for the website and held the contest for her. With that in mind, I’d like to say I am attempting to give an honest review about the novel the best I can.
The story centers around Connor, a seventeen year old who has been a social outcast ever since he bit another boy in his kindergarten class. Things seem to look up when he’s given a scholarship to attend a school in Paris and starts making new friends. Overtime, he is introduced to the secret world of werewolves, finding out there are two kinds: the born and the bitten. The born become full-fledged wolves while the bitten become half-human, half-wolf creatures. A mad scientist, a very old, bitten-werewolf , is seeking out a “cure” to wipe out the existence of the werewolves, and Connor is caught in the middle of the feud. Continue reading →
I’ve been a busy bee.
I’ve graduated from my publishing program.
I’ve finished up my internship with Harpercollins Canada.
And I’m currently in search of a marketing/social media job.
For anyone who would like to get into the publishing industry, the best thing to do is take classes and get yourself into an internship. There’s nothing better than get on the job experience and you get to meet some pretty awesome people to.
The key is to work hard (always go the extra mile)–they do take notice, and try not to be shy–always ask questions and do everything you possibly can.
For example, I worked for the marketing and publicity departments. During my 3 months, I wanted to be as involved as possible, so I attended events and even took pictures since I wanted to help out with their corprate blog. It was a a lot of fun too!
When I have more time, I hope to elaborate more on what to expect at an internship or answer any questions some of you may have.
For now, I’m on a job search and currently managing social media for 404, which will soon become Paper Droids.
