A Day in the Life of a Sales Assistant

Today’s “Day in the Life” post focuses on how a book transforms from its UK edition form into its brand-new form as a foreign language edition. Every day in the Red Lemon Press office, a talented team of individuals sell books all over the world. In the video below, Sales Assistant Mariana Podmore takes us through the sales process from start to finish.

MarianaHiya, I’m Mariana, Foreign Rights and Sales Assistant to brand new Red Lemon Press, Weldon Owen and also Piccolia (another Bonnier company), as well as helping out with Hot Key when I have a spare minute! Today I’ll take you through the most exciting bit of working in foreign rights: actually selling a right, and getting to see your book published in a different language!
