Book Publishing jobs in Los Angeles?

I'm looking to get in the book publishing business (I know, a dying area, but its my passion) and I'm wondering if there are any opportunities in the LA area? I'm a student here and I'm looking for work in my field.

I looked into the major publishers, but they're all on the East Coast! Especially NY and Boston.

Is there any such work in the LA area? Most of the "creative" business around here seem to revolve around film, and that's not what I'm looking for.

Thanks.

    Dieing Area.

    You are in for a big shock then.

    I can't say for the States, but in UK there is a trade Magazine called the Bookseller which is where you would look in Blighty.

    I am sure there will be some publication in USA. I don't know how big the Publishing industry is in L.A. and that area, but there must be plenty of agents offices, with Hollywood on your doorstep.

    Here is a website for literary agents in L.A.

    I heard that they think of they have an unique franchise on the understanding of kaballah. some weeks in the past a woman became exterior their place on Robertson and handing out enjoying cards merchandising the hot ASK THE KABALA e book. A team member got here out and informed her that if she did no longer provide up status on the sidewalk close to them he might call the police.
