UNSUITABLE #14, Marketing Fiction in the Digital Age
A Conversation with Shawn Nicholls
Shawn Nicholls is an Associate Publisher at HarperCollins, overseeing the sales and marketing aspects of the mass market and e-original divisions with a strong emphasis on romance. A 2002 Duke graduate with economics and English degrees, Shawn originally ventured to New York City to parlay a successful career at The Chronicle into a full-time gig as a sportswriter, eventually landing at Sports Illustrated. After many years as a road warrior he turned to his longtime obsession with books, landing at Random House before eventually finding a home at HarperCollins. He’s been a mainstay on the romance circuit ever since.
