Helpful and interesting. Thanks. Loved the story about Catholic school and snarfing up the Asimov when no one was looking. Colleen comes across as savvy but approachable and I like that.

My daughter has written a novel and it's sequel. She is unpublished and has just started looking for an agent. She does not know her times tables yet and still doesn't see a reason to need them.I wonder what made you decide at age 24 to learn them? She is 16 so maybe in 8 more years!

Thank God for Colleen. She brings a fearless heart as well as an intellect to the quivering world of publishing...a beacon of light in these dark times for writers. Mary M.

Interesting comment on the over qualified job title. With all the title inflation it's wonder some folks ever get a second job. Come on, I was Managing Director of what exactly at the age of 28? Cheers The Closer http://iloveclosing.com/ The world needs a decent airport book on sales that is not stuck somewhere back in 1983... humor is a great way to start

Well, it's unanimous! We all agree that one day a month for book reading is a great idea. i remember in grade school we had a designated 1/2 hour every day to read. I'd even take that! Thanks everyone for your comments. And, thanks most of all to Colleen, who really is a treasure to the book world. ~ Kat

Thanks for another terrific interview. And Colleen is right about this being a scary down time for publishing. I survived the Regan recession with only a minor blip, but this winter was the worst I've seen since I started freelancing in the 1980s. It's just crazy bad. But I think maybe we've hit the bottom and we're starting to climb up. A major hurtle to ebooks is format. There really has to be one universal format that works with both PCs and Macs and that can be used at more than one online store and that will also accept ebooks from the library. They are horribly expensive, and it's ridiculous to spend the money when you don't really know where the future will be. After all, the Kindle 2 is already obsolete, and it's been out only months. Anyway, I love the publishing industry and I'm so lucky to have been part of it for so long. But I sure wish I had more time to read just for me.
