I’ve Got a New Job in Publishing!
Well, this headline feels familiar. Just over two years I wrote a blog post on getting a new job in publishing and now I’m writing another one.
See The Bookseller article for more details!
I had a blast at Canelo! And I left with a heavy heart, as I really enjoyed working with the people and on the books. But as anyone with a career knows, it’s onwards and upwards. And I’ll still meet up with the Canelo Clan (not my marketing term!) whenever I – and they – can for drinks, food, and probably more drinks.
As for my new job though: Marketing Manager.
Sixteen-year-old me is squealing with glee. Being a manager was always something I envisaged I would be at 30-odd years old, not at 23, but here we are and I couldn’t be gladder.
I’m joining a fabulous team at HarperCollins and working on some equally fabulous books from established authors like Mel Sherratt, C.L Taylor and Laura Jane Williams to brand new authors like Caroline Corcoran.
I am leaving the world of publicity behind, by choice as I always preferred marketing to publicity, and I imagine I’m about to step into a very challenging role. But as anyone who knows me will already know: I like a challenge.
I also really like to be busy and I’m pretty sure Avon will be able to oblige.
As for my time at Canelo, there were many highlights! Too many to list – and probably a few I can’t admit to on a public forum.
I hope to write about my new role in the coming months, once I’ve settled in and the nervous sheen of sweat has rubbed off. So keep your eyes peeled!
