writers connect with agents & publishers
JOIN US FOR AN EVENING WITH TWO PUBLISHERS!
We were delighted to catch up with Sam for some
quick fire questions:
1/Please could you give us a brief biog.
I have recently moved into editorial at Orion
following nine years as a publicist at Transworld, Headline and
Macmillan. I am actively acquiring fiction for 2016 and 2017.
2/What is the most recent book you've bought?
A twisty psychological thriller for 2017 that I am
pitching as a dark While You Were Sleeping. It has three female
protagonist and a huge twist at 50% which will change the reader's
perception of one of our leads.
3/What are you looking for?
On my wishlist at the moment is a new British police
procedural series featuring someone at the start of their career, a
cosy mystery series, psychological thrillers and smart reading
group and sf crossover novels. I'm in that geeky early editorial
stage where I love reading submissions but I would also love to
work with agents closely on developing fiction ideas too!
4/Finally, what three writers - dead or alive -
would you invite for tea and cakes
JK Rowling, Jo Nesbo and Agatha Christie. Can
someone make that happen?
Sam will be joined at the event by her colleague,
editor, Emma Smith.
