"Dr. Lu is early!"
The charming and charming receptionist bowed to salute, and Lu Chen couldn't help but glance at her with her sweet and crisp voice.
The front desk of Lu Chen Workshop used to be Little Mei sister. Not long ago, she transferred to Lu Xi's assistant, which was a big improvement. This front desk was newly recruited recently.
At that time, Lu Chen happened to go to Hongkong. It is said that the news of recruiting a new front desk was released. The beautiful women who came to apply for the job were continuously competing.
It is a pity that he was not able to meet, but this carefully selected new employee is undoubtedly very seductive.
Lu Chen nodded: "Morning."
Although he founded Workshop, the general manager's position is always held by Lu Xi. Lu Chen himself was originally the music director, and now he is the art director.
He asked one more sentence: "What's your name?"
The receptionist Tiantian smiled and said: "My name is Wang Yali, you can call me Xiaoli."
"Director Lu, Manager Zhang from Shanhai Publishing House is waiting for you in the reception room. Did you meet him in the office, nevertheless?"
Lu Chen said: "I'll go see him directly."
Shanhai Publishing House is one of the top ten Big Min publishing houses in China. It is headquartered in Beijing. When Lu Chen published "Blue Life and Death", this publishing house won a high price of 15% of royalties + 500,000 guarantee. copyright.Later, the edition of "Full House" also cooperated with Shanhai Publishing House.
So far, the combined sales of these two novels by Lu Chen have exceeded 5 million. As adaptations of film and television dramas, the results are very dazzling. Aside from the influence of the works themselves, Shanhai Publishing House also has one's contributions cannot go unnoticed.
Therefore, Shanhai Publishing House is the first in the Lu Chen Workshop's cooperation list.
Zhang Yaocheng, the manager of Shanhai Publishing House, knew Lu Chen. The deputy general manager and editor-in-chief went to the Workshop to wait for Lu Chen. Of course, Lu Chen had to come out to receive him.
"Manager Zhang, Long Time No See!"
In the reception room, Lu Chen met Zhang Yaocheng again, a middle-aged man with a refined temperament.
Zhang Yaocheng and Lu Chen shook hands tightly and smiled: "Director Lu, you are a busy person, it is not easy to find you!"
Lu Chen is ashamed: "Recently, I have been preparing to make a movie in Hongkong. It is really be up to one's ears in work."
Zhang Yaocheng said: "Then this time, let's just finalize the contract!"
Lu Chen nodded: "Okay."
It was not until this time that Zhang Yaocheng introduced to Lu Chen a young woman he had brought: "This is Zhou Lu, my assistant Editor. She is responsible for the editing and proofreading of "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer"."Lu Chen nodded at the other party, smiled and said, "Hello."
Zhou Lu was in her twenties, with an ordinary appearance and wearing thick glasses. Facing Lu Chen, she was a little flustered. She wanted to reach out and retracted, her face flushed.
Lu Chen smiled and said: "Thanks for your hard work, let's go to the office to talk."
Zhang Yaocheng certainly has no objection. He glared at Zhou Lu not a word or movement, quite a bit hate iron for not becoming steel.
He brought his niece here today, in order to let her meet the world, meet Lu Chen, a promising young man, and expand his horizons and connections.
Unexpectedly, Zhou Lu's performance was so bad, she didn't have the confidence in her usual work.
It can only be said that Lu Chen's charm is too great, or the halo is too dazzling, so that a girl like Zhou Lu who is venturing from one's thatched hut for the first time can't keep calm and calm.
After Lu Chen's office was seated, Zhou Lu finally reacted and took out a thick stack of books from the briefcase she carried with him. A total of five volumes were placed in front of Lu Chen.
Zhang Yaocheng explained: “This is a sample book specially ordered by our publishing house. The title of the book was inscribed by the famous calligrapher Mr. Fu Guangyuan, and Director Lu is also invited to review it.”
Lu Chen picked up the book on the top and looked at it carefully.Although it is just a sample book, it is basically not much different from the officially published book. The color laser printed cover has a high resolution. The four black characters "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" are vigorous and powerful, showing the writer’s extraordinary skills. The brushstroke sweeps and has a bit of uninhibited arena and chivalrous spirit.
Lu Chen is very satisfied.
"The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" is a trial work of Lu Chen's big IP project. In May and June of this year, he made his first online version in Inspur Reading under the pseudonym "Recalling Ancient Times".
At the beginning, the score of "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" was a hit on the street. Clicks, favorites, and reader reviews are just a very few, which can be described as bleak.
But when Lu Chen continued to update to more than 200,000 words, the book's grades improved greatly. More and more readers like this book, and they have also received a signing invitation from the book site.
Of course, it is impossible for Lu Chen to sign "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" to Inspur Reading. Later, the update speed was slowed down, and the update was suspended when it accumulated to 500,000 words, and the publication notice was issued.
At this time, "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" has more than 30,000+ collections in Inspur Reading!
In the operation of this new school of Wuxia, Lu Chen is not anxious for quick results. Unlike movies or TV, the public praise of a good book takes time to accumulate and brew, such as wine entering the cellar, the longer the time, the more fragrant. .Now that the heat is almost over, Lu Chen will launch it to the market through official publication, and then appropriately operate it to pave the way for a series of works such as "The Legend of the Condor Heroes" and "The Eight Parts of the Dragon".
This set of "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" has a total of five volumes, the full text is about one million words, the book design and binding are antique, and the layout of the content is regular. Shanhai Publishing House is undoubtedly very careful.
While Lu Chen was reviewing the sample book, Zhang Yaocheng was not at ease.
When Lu Chen Workshop brought the manuscript over, the publishers had disputes over the specific contract terms, because the author of "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" had no reputation in the show business community and had no previous works.
Publishing such a book is definitely a risk. If the royalties are divided + guaranteed, it is easy to lose money.
However, after reading "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" and knowing the feedback from readers of Inspur Reading, Zhang Yaocheng decided to sign the contract according to the highest level of authorship.
This is not only the need for continued good cooperation with Lu Chen Workshop, but more importantly, Zhang Yaocheng has a keen interest in this Wuxia. His professional sensitivity tells him that in the traditional book market, "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" "Definitely have a place.Therefore, after learning that Lu Chen had returned from Hongkong, he immediately visited his door and delivered a carefully prepared sample book to ensure that he could win the publishing contract.
Zhang Yaocheng believes that his sincerity is enough to achieve this cooperation.
In fact, he was not disappointed.
