Our own sales manager Bob joins us this week to tell all about the fascinating world of sales within the publishing industry — the travel, the giddy buyers eager to get their hands on new books, and the awesome bookstores he visits (we’re looking at you, Wild Rumpus Books!).

Take a look and learn what it takes to sell (hint: it doesn’t involve knocking on doors and asking if people have “heard the good news about the Caldecott.”):

Do you have more questions for Bob, or just want to brag about having also arrived as a parent? Let us know below! And remember, you can always catch up on previous episodes of Coffee Break with EBYR by visiting or subscribing to our EBYRTV channel on YouTube.
