I really enjoyed this video. The process can be talked about and read many times over but actually seeing this dispelled the mystery of the process. Thank you Random House. XO
Okay, you've sold me…you may publish my next book. 😉
I enjoyed seeing how a brand new book goes from arriving at the publishers to ending up at the store or on a tablet. Good work.
Thank you for watching!
Thank you 🙂
Thank you for posting. It is interesting and inspiring with what you guys do. A true writers dream.
I want to be an editor so badly…I really regret not doing an internship somewhere in college. Really interesting, informative video.
The subtitles are hilarious. Did no-one check them? It makes a mockery of the whole video about editing and proofreading.
Thanks so much for making us aware that YouTube's machine-generated closed captioning was not doing a good job with our video. We've now uploaded our own captions and we hope you find them more useful.
Thanks Lurlene, we're so pleased you enjoyed the video.
You are very welcome.
Too bad about that whole ePublishing thing, huh?
Thoroughly enjoyed the video. Showed me things I always wondered about.
Loved seeing people I know in this video! My wonderful editor Anne Schwartz and art director Lee Wade, Wendy Lamb, and Annette Danek who runs the fabulous and humongous warehouse in a secret location in MD, where they treat you like family and you can pop all the bubble wrap you want and you never want to leave even though it's windowless on account of it's better that way for storing a third of the world's music and for reading every book that rushes down the sorting machines at you until you
It's Ann Kingman! When she started I thought hmm that voice sounds familiar then I remembered…Books on the Nightstand!
This is fantastic! I love that fact that now when people ask me what I want to do with my life, I can just pull up this video and show them. Thank you!
Hello Musiclvr5003, so glad you found the overview helpful. Best of luck to you!
Random Question from my house: Will Random house take on a new novelist in his fifties, assuming great story?
I am very conflicted about random House right now. Random House’s Hydra contract terms that seemed so negatively nasty. As now Random House’s Hydra changes contract terms was positive move. I am very wary considering how quickly they made such a negative move with there contract as all my life Random House was the example of a solid professional grip of reality of the business.
I was the same though the recent Random House’s Hydra changes contract terms gave me a moment pause. They are clearly a force to recon with after purchasing Penguin. I hope they regain there footing towards upholding a common respective and Professional with prospective Authors and readers alike.
I have had lots of publishing experience with both small traditional publishers and self publishing. For more information go via youtube: Two of the most unusual books
Hey guys please check out my blog any one is welcome just please if you like it share it like us on facebook if you don't comment let us know why!

Very good idea! Thanks.
The editors seem to be trustworthy, unfortunately I doubt that they would have accepted my manuscript because it probably would be lost in the crowd. Marketing is not my bag but I get great feedback from my readers and although I have never made a submission to Random House I am thankful that the opportunity to self-publish exists. I get great comments from people who would love to tell me my books suck. Maybe one day I will invite a rejection from Random House Publishers.

To quote someone on The Passive Voice, "Once again, Big Publishing shows what its real focus and concern is, by trying to shift its branding focus from authors to publishers. Instead of saying to writers, “We’ll help you build YOUR brand as an author,” they say, “Aren’t you impressed by OUR brand as your publisher?”
Maybe try spending money on marketing for your authors. You guys aren't important. No one says, gee I must get down the bookstore to see what Random House (or any other publisher) has released today. We readers don't gibe a rats ass about the publisher; it's the AUTHOR who is important, and ONLY THE AUTHOR!
When people ask me what I want to do for a living, all I have to do is show them this video. This video, is truly fantastic.
I really appreciate how transparent you are in your process of producing books. As someone who has great interest in working in the publishing industry someday, I find this to be truly helpful and inspiring. It motivates me to work really hard and focus on that goal of working in publishing.
That was hysterical. You guys have a great sense of humor.
Please, check out my trilogy …Very sellable, commercial fiction. I'm looking for a publishing deal. Contact through fb.
Very informative, I enjoyed this video
I just applied here, I really hope I get the job
I doubt I'll be so lucky, but when I go to publish my novel, it would be a dream to have Penguin Random House publish it. From the video, they are the kind of people I want to work with.
I have one book to publish
I'm a copy editor and I love what they say in this video. It's so true. I love bringing out the best in every piece of text I edit while ensuring I keep the author's unique voice strong and true. The relationship I build with every writer I work with is so intimate and I do my best to look after them and make sure they're happy at every stage of the editing process.
I just wrote a book. After I'mdone just re-reading and changing some things, I'm hoping to send it here
Can any author forward a submission and have somebody look at it, or has the manuscript forwarded have to come from an agent? Amazing info in the video but I wanted to hear that anybody can send in work and have a chance to get published.
WHAT GOOD DOES THIS VIDEO DO ANYONE THEY DON"T LET YOU SUMMIT DIRECTLY TO THEM
I am a 15 year old kid who wants to publish a novel plz help me
Love the video so helpful I'm righting a book at the moment I'm only 13 if you have tips I would love to see what you have to say 🙂
WOOW, -i am a Book Activist and i wish to work with you or to do an internship but i have to improve my English first.
I love this video <3Does Random House publish books on poetry?I would love to publish my book with Random House 😀
Well, can I illustrate by my self?
May 27, 2018—How about a video how this company decides whose book to publish and why?
Here is my short story horror book Pathways into Darkness: http://www.lulu.com/shop/leonard-rich/pathways-into-darkness/paperback/product-23733442.html
@gyrosk Yea, editing is the worst! However, always ask for a free sample edit to compare and pick the best editor. Compare prices and edits from places like Hugeorange and freelancers.
Great video, it is very informative. Will someone at your company be interested in a novel about a young female navy sailor.—"Sailor Girl." It has been edited and I promise you it is a good read. This is riveting story about a young woman's quest for meaning, purpose, and true love, and success in her life while serving in the US Navy!
liberals in one room that require an agent to submit a book. Good job on open submissions that was promised.
I have published self my Book THE god good to figure out Kindle Amazon A christian apologetic Book
When I'm finished with writing my book, this is where I'm sending my manuscript!
Wow, what a great, informative video with a real insight into the author and publisher's relationship in working with a book manuscript. Truly inspiring to this unpublished writer!
I just want to send a book that i have created in Word format. CW4 US Army Retired.
There's an enormous bias toward female Left Wingers from urban areas…
Gee whiz, I sure do miss Bennett Cerf!
I have a book on amazon! https://www.amazon.com/Happy-Sunshine-Tales-collection-Halloween-ebook/dp/B07JMGJVQL/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1547034074&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=happy+sunshine+tales&dpPl=1&dpID=51rFop%2Bca3L&ref=plSrch
I just completed my first book. It's currently in the hands of a freelance editor and will be looking for an agent soon. With a little luck maybe one day I'll see it in print from your house. Best wishes to all.
Does penguin accept manuscripts from young authors(i.e. below 16 yrs of age)????????
It looks like they're really open to hiring gays.
I'm a teacher. I have been teaching for 10+ years and would love to write short children leveled readers. I would love to work for Random House as a writer.
This video makes me happy. I want to be an author but an editor also….
This is a great video. You are all very author friendly.
I'm considering applying now
