London Writers' Club evening with two publishers, 23 February 2016, London

London Writers' Club have an upcoming publishing event with Sam Eades and Emma Smith of Orion Publishing, full details below:


London Writers' Club
helping writers connect with agents & publishers
February 2016

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.
