Next event 2014 - Wednesday April 23rd– Guest speaker: Fiona Brownlee
Fiona Brownlee was Marketing & Rights Director of Mainstream Publishing for 17 years. In December 2013, when Random House bought the company and closed the Edinburgh office, she set up Brownlee Donald Associates specialising in selling international rights for Scottish publishers and agents and marketing books from international publishers which are distributed in the UK.
Current clients include Jenny Brown Associates, Freight, Luath, NWP, Judy Moir, Pitch, Sandstone and Saraband in terms of Scottish rights and Pegasus (US) and O’Brien (Ireland) in terms of international marketing.
Before moving to Scotland Fiona worked in London as Publicity & Promotions Director at Pavilion Books (now part of Anova) and as an Account Manager at Midas PR. She is on the Board of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, the PPC (Publisher’s Publicity Circle) and ASLA (Association of Scottish Literary Agents).
She loves the liberation and intellectual stimulation of running her own business. She misses the accountant and IT support.
