Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
Next Century Publishing (NCP), a wholly owned subsidiary of Readers Legacy Corp, is seeking an executive with strong sales and author support experience for a sales/ production manager position. Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, NCP is a full service publisher, bringing books to market in all genres. The executive does not have to create leads, but, instead, must establish a system for receiving a highly qualified author lead, assessing their needs and bringing the lead to contract.
Next Century Publishing will launch two exciting innovations in 2014 that will drive sales to 100 titles per month by Q3. Due to this, the position requires the executive to build a strong relationship with the author, supporting them from initial contact through and even beyond the book launch. Other major responsibilities will include: development of promotions through collaboration with the marketing team, grow and manage an author support team, moderate weekly department meetings and an annual Sales Conference, participate in pricing, reprint, cover design, and production committees, forecast and monitor sales goals, as well as prepare and present sales reports analyzing performance.
“We seek a professional with a proven track record in quickly assessing the needs of the author, reviewing the manuscripts, and preparing production and marketing contracts,” says NCP CEO Ken Dunn. The ideal candidate will have proven ability to manage a team, strong contacts in the publishing world, and expertise in key sales channels and industry standards as well as the ability to multitask, strong verbal and written communication skills, and creative thinking.
“We’re excited to have someone join our team in Las Vegas, and are willing to negotiate a relocation package,” concludes Dunn.
