Director of Library Marketing Talia Sherer coordinates the library marketing activities of Macmillan’s adult publishers, which include St. Martin’s Press, Henry Holt, Tor/Forge, Minotaur, Picador, and Farrar, Straus & Giroux. Talia was chair of the Association of American Publishers (AAP) Trade Libraries committee for four years and was proud to be named a 2010 Library Journal Mover & Shaker!
"Sure, if you read Talia’s gory favorites, you’ll find the occasional spleen enjoying the open air rather than resting quietly wherever it belongs inside our bodies, but beyond that, you’ll also find a bunch of richly satisfying stories peopled by multidimensional characters who will make you think as much as they make you retch." —Booklist (5/10/2011)
And when authors let her down, they know it,
"I'd like to apologize to Talia Sherer, Macmillan's Library Marketing Manager. I know this book isn't gory enough for you, Talia. I promise to make up for it next time." —Chelsea Cain, in THE NIGHT SEASON (see Acknowledgments)
