Hi! I'm Morgan Hubbard, the new sales manager at David R. Godine, Publisher. I come to Godine from an academic background, having just finished a master's in Public History at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Books have always been my chief interest—at UMass, I worked with the university's colossal collection of cold war science fiction, and marshaled my reading into an interactive online exhibit for the UMass library. You can peruse it here. I've also done my share of stints in marketing and sales at a variety of outfits, most recently J. Crew and the publisher Wiley-Blackwell.
As Godine's new sales manager I'm looking forward to cultivating relationships with our booksellers. I'll be making sales calls in the Mid-Atlantic; if that's your region, I hope we'll get the chance to meet soon. I'm also looking forward to expanding our sales efforts. The lists Godine produces are eclectic, and they deserve the chance to catch buyers' eyes in eclectic places. And anxiety-inducing though it may be for the industry, the internet consitutes a whole new way to get our delightful books onto readers' shelves—or e-readers.
Please feel free to contact me anytime. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 617-451-9600 x 25.
