In part two of this exclusive Feature film, we follow the process of a book as it goes through production, audiobook creation, cover design, publicity, marketing, rights and sales.
Orion books is part of Hachette – one of the largest publishers in the world. We were granted behind-the-scenes access to their flagship London offices to chat to the people who make traditionally-published books happen.
Join debut author Sarah Juckes, as she chats to Katie Horrocks (Deputy Production Manager), Paul Stark (Senior Audio Manager), Lucie Stericker (Group Creative Director), Rebecca Grey (Head of Fiction Publicity), Cait Davies (Senior Marketing Manager), Krystyna Kujawinska (Foreign Rights Director) and Mark Stay (Online Key Accounts Director).
As well as discovering how much marketing and publicity a debut author can expect to receive, we also find out how eBook and Print book files differ in production; how audiobooks are one of the fastest growing markets in publishing right now; how sales of rights work and the input retailers such as Amazon will have on your book.
This is an extra-special film aimed at writers at all stages of their career. If you’re thinking about traditionally publishing, this is not a film to miss. Remember – the entire two-part film is FREE for members of Jericho Writers.
