Any large differences between the UK and the US approaches of PRH? These videos give a pretty good idea of what goes on in a publishing house (all except the office politics). One does wonder what the qualifications are for a job as an “expert in word-of-mouth” in PRH New York’s marketing department.

Basically publishing is publishing, wherever it’s done. Of course there are regional differences, but we are all “working in the realm of magic”. Wherever we are, we are all engaged in the same business, making money by bringing authors’ words to as many readers as possible. Penguin Random House is the big dog, and their animal is superbly trained.
