Posted by Leigh Norwich, Acquisitions & Marketing Executive
I’m very pleased to introduce myself in my new role, as Acquisitions & Marketing Executive for Ashgate’s Aviation list! I’ve worked with Ashgate in both commissioning and marketing roles since 2008; I’ll now be acquiring Aviation titles and expanding the list into new areas. My dual role means that I’ll be collaborating with authors from the earliest stages of proposing a book, through to marketing and promotion—establishing a unique long-term publishing partnership.
For those of you who know Guy Loft: he’s not going anywhere! Guy will focus on developing our human factors and ergonomics list, though he’ll remain involved with the aviation list through the end of 2015.
I work from our US office in Burlington, Vermont, but I welcome new projects from around the world. Please send any book ideas or proposals to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also connect with me on LinkedIn and Twitter (@theleighside).
I’ll be attending the 2015 A3IR conference in Phoenix, AZ, USA, 15-17 January, and invite anyone attending to stop by the Ashgate table and say hello. Whether in person or by email, I look forward to many interesting future conversations—and to exciting new Aviation books!
