Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company
Associate Production Editor
Greater Boston Area
Melissa deJesus is often the first person to find out that a retailer has an issue with one of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's Trade ebooks, like 1984, Lord of the Rings, or The Handmaid's Tale. Then she's the person who tweaks the file or the metadata to fix the problem. For more recent titles, she was usually the person who decided if and how to make it into an ebook to begin with, and then made it. Which is to say, she's a Boston-based associate production editor who develops ebooks for hundreds of frontlist and thousands of backlist adult trade titles every year, including fiction and nonfiction, reflowable and fixed format.
