Behind-The-Scenes At Orion – Part One

Behind-The-Scenes At Orion – Part One

What happens after you get an agent? In part one of this exclusive Feature film, we follow the process of a book as it goes through submission, acquisition, and editing. Orion books is part of Hachette one of the largest publishers in the world. We were granted behind-the-scenes access to their flagship London offices to chat to the people who make traditionally-published books happen. Join debut author Sarah Juckes, as she chats to Holly Harley (Senior Editor, W&N, non-fiction), Harriet Bourton (Publisher, Orion Fiction), Rebecca Grey (Head of Fiction Publicity), Mark Stay (Online Key Accounts Director), Paul Bulos (Contracts Director), Francesca Pathak (Commissioning Editor, Orion Fiction), and Emma Smith, (Commissioning Editor, Trapeze, Non-Fiction). As well as discovering what editors are really looking for when they acquire a new book, we also find out how much say the sales and marketing teams have in acquisition; what’s expected of an author in their edits; what a standard publishing contract looks like and much, much more. This is an extra-special film aimed at writers at all stages of their career. If you’re thinking about traditionally publishing, this is not a film to miss. Remember the entire two-part film is FREE for members of Jericho Writers. See below for a ten-minute teaser of this video.
