• Maintain relationships with front and backlist authors
• Maintain and contribute to media-list databases
• Build strong relationships with the media and bookselling community
• Work closely with editorial and sales departments to support books and authors

Required Skills:
• Excellent written and verbal communication skills
• Ability to multi-task and work independently
• Must be able to come up with non-standard promotional ideas tailored to each campaign
• Must understand online and social media
• Meeting deadlines and being detail-oriented is crucial
• Proficiency in the Cision media database is strongly preferred
