Orbit Seeks Sci-Fi-Loving Publicist

On Tuesday we posted about an editor gig at Orbit, and now it looks like the Hachette division is looking for an enthusiastic publicist to join its New York team, too.

In this role, you’ll be asked to develop and implement seasonal publicity campaigns for science fiction, fantasy and Manga, supporting the Yen and Orbit imprints. You’ll need to put your creative thinking cap on to conceive of original plans for key titles, which will include media outreach, as well as industry and author events.

To be considered, you should have two to three years of publicity experience, and a well-rounded knowledge of trade book publishing. Extensive contacts are a big plus, and a passion for science fiction, fantasy, Manga and genre publishing is a must-have. Hands-on team players who work well under pressure should apply here.
