My Library: “Books can be possessive, can’t they?”

28 Feb

Two of my bookshelves filled with well-loved books, oddities, and yarn

Each post in this series will let them share with you the books they love most and the ones that fill their shelves. They will share their top 10 favorites and the ones they can’t stop re-reading. I hope that from this, you’ll get to know us a little better and share some of your favorites with us as well.

Creativity is a theme this summer with TSTC Publishing’s design interns. “The graphic design interns we have this summer come from a wide range of backgrounds and experience, but all share a passion for design and a strong work ethic that is vital in today’s job market,” said Projects Manager Grace Arsiaga. “We have had interns working in the office since 2004, when the office first opened, and they are a great asset to the company.”

Lust, Violence, Religion Author Profile: Amy Balderach

16 Apr

In her 2005 master’s degree thesis for the American Studies program at Baylor University, Amy Balderach researched and unveiled astounding information about the role prostitution played in Waco’s history. Her essay, “Waco Undressed,” is included as the second chapter in Bradley T. Turner’s book, Lust, Violence, Religion: Life in Historic Waco. The booming cotton and cattle industries in the Deep South during the post-civil war era led to the birth of an area in Waco known as The Reservation. Waco’s red-light district was housed in this two-street region.

TSTC Publishing Welcomes Baylor Intern

19 Jan

TSTC Publishing has taken me on as an intern for the spring semester. My name is Shayla Crane and I am a senior at Baylor University where I am studying English with a minor in Creative Writing. My ideal job is to become an author, primarily in the genre of teen fantasy or science fiction. However, the completion of that dream is really far away at the moment. Until I can achieve that dream, I have decided to seek a career in book publishing.

Web-Based Applications: Issuu

14 Mar

issuu-logo1One of the things that we’ve been looking for lately is a good online book previewer to integrate into the individual product pages at our e-commerce site (as well as using elsewhere as applicable). The first good application I remember coming across like this was Amazon.com’s system. Another one is used by National Academies Press. Both these systems, though, are proprietary and what we needed was a system that was robust enough for our purposes and, because we don’t have tons of money for a new stand-alone application or one off the shelf, at the right price.

Thankfully, I think we’ve finally found what we’re looking for with Issuu.

Conferences & Conventions: NISOD 2008 Wrap-Up

30 May

And, what a week—or at least half a week—it was at NISOD! I had planned to post updates daily but by the end of each day I was ready to hurl myself onto the bed in my hotel room, prop up my throbbing feet, and get caught up on the latest “must-see” (yes, that’s the ironic use of quotation marks) cable television shows given that at home we’re still happily chugging along with rabbit ears and 5-6 channels. (Even though it’s been on TV for a while, this was the first time I’d ever seen Bridezillas, which was certainly a spectacle of sorts in its own right.) Anyway, highlights of this year’s NISOD convention included:
