Welcome to BitBookish.com

Hello! Welcome to BitBookish.com

I’m Sophie – I write and draw all of this stuff. It’s a comic about the book industry (publishing in particular – but look out for some librarian and bookseller adventures). BitBookish will be all sorts of magnificent.

I work in the Rights department of a publishing house. Rights is where it’s at.

*sigh* you don’t know what a Rights department does, do you?
Ok, Rights is a bit like Editorial’s evil twin. The kind of evil twin that wears a leather jacket and rides a motorcycle. Nobody understands us and we are full of inner turmoil. And then we go evil 80’s style: We put on power suits and negotiate contracts and divide the world up into territories to conquer with our mad sales skills.

I think I went a bit off topic. Expect more of the same.

You may have some questions; feel free to keep them to yourself. If you really must, you can leave a comment or email me at sophie@bitbookish.com …unless I know you in real-life, in which case just use that email address I‘ve had for the last 10 years. Idiot.

Enjoy the launch!

Sophie *BLASTOFF* Dean

P.S. BitBookish will be updated every Monday and Thursday except over the holidays (then it goes down to once a week because I’ll probably be napping). BAM!
