I'm interviewing for a job at a book production company and I haven't really been able to find out much about what goes on in the process overall. Does anyone know of any book publishing groups or message boards or general resources out there (something similar to AW, but more geared to books)?

Muchas gracias.

What kind of job? A production job or an editorial job?

Tish -

Production, but anything would be useful. I'm trying to get a sense of the industry as a whole (my background is all in magazine publishing similar but not congruent).

Thanks.

Sorry I don't know anything about the production end of things.

I'm not sure if this will answer everything, but try joining http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NFforKids/

There are writers on that list who have written for encyclopedias, standardized texts, and textbooks.
