Do you want to be part of the most exciting story in the games industry right now? Do the names Catan, Arkham Horror, KeyForge, Pandemic and Legend of the Five Rings get you excited? Are you in love with fantasy novels and the wonderful stories they can tell? At Asmodee Entertainment we are looking for a standout candidate to join our publishing team, as we prepare our range of novels based on Asmodee’s most imaginative worlds for our launch in May 2020.
Are you excited by the thought of representing great books to the wider world, singing their praises to sales partners, and arranging book promotions to gamers and fantasy fans around the English-speaking world? This role brings all of that for the right person.
You will be working as a key member of the Aconyte Books team based in Nottingham, UK. Working to an agreed promotions schedule, you will liaise with our UK sales partners to plan book launches and effective publicity. In partnership with our North American sales manager and our sales partners at Simon & Schuster, you will ensure promotion and publicity covers that territory too. There will also be opportunities to organise and attend events, from modest in-store launches to the largest games and SF conventions.
The challenges in this role will be to understand the books and convey their unique qualities to our partners, to key publicity venues, and to the wider fanbase of fantasy readers and gamers alike. The schedule will be busy and the budgets modest, so creativity and drive are equally essential.
For the right person this could be a great step up, an opportunity to join a well-supported imprint near its start and really contribute to its success.
To apply for this position, please take the time to craft a cover letter which really explains what makes you who you are, what you’ve done so far, and why this is the job for you. By all means send in a current CV too.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Please send applications to Vanessa Jack at firstname.lastname@example.org by close of play Friday 22nd November.
