Look! My mini interview about life in quarantine 😇 #Repost @leeandlow with @make_repost ・・・ Meet our fabulous Marketing & Publicity Manager, Jalissa (@jmarcellecorrie)! By day Jalissa helps bring attention to our books and authors, and by night she's an author herself, with a short story in the recently released YA anthology A PHOENIX FIRST MUST BURN. Pictured here as she often spends her days, with a million twitter columns scrolling in the background. How I ended up working at Lee & Low: I switched from the apparel and home furnishings industry to publishing back in 2016. I promptly looked at marketing and publicity opportunities and landed an internship at Lee & Low. I’ve stayed ever since! What I’m reading, watching, or listening to right now: I’m listening to podcasts like Scam Goddess, My Worst Date, and Why Don’t You Date Me? with Nicole Byer. Watching hours of Bar Rescue (new obsession), Schitt’s Creek, documentaries about cults, and my ol’ faithful Real Housewives franchise on Bravo. Where I’d love to go when we can travel again: Anywhere where there is amazing food because I’m tired of cooking. The food I wish could be delivered to my door: Bistec enchiladas con verde salsa! My favorite restaurant is currently closed, but I’ll be ordering as soon as they're safe to open back up!
