Hello, Hello

markbyrne.jpgHi, folks. My name is Mark Byrne and I’ll be joining the GalleyCat staff, starting today.

I’ve been working in and around the publishing industry for a few years, in a couple capacities: first, as an associate editor at Featherproof Books, a small press in Chicago; then at New York Magazine, where I worked under the books editor and literary critic; and currently as a graduate student in the Literary Reportage program at NYU, where I’m writing a book-length, reported thesis on the independent publishing industry.

I’ve been reading GalleyCat for years and I’m excited to be on board. Please send any tips and ideas my way.

Update: Follow this link to listen to an interview with Mark.
