I am an editorial director at Trapeze Books, a new imprint of the Orion Publishing Group. I used to be a publicist, and previously worked at Transworld Publishers, Headline and Macmillan. During that time I won multiple PPC awards for pr campaigns on The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman; The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey and The Taxidermist’s Daughter by Kate Mosse. Because of this background in PR I’m drawn to authors with interesting personal stories. As an editor I commission commercial fiction for Trapeze, looking for great writing with a broad appeal. I want to discover standout voices in the crime, psychological suspense, reading group and women’s fiction areas. My favourite books include BLACKLANDS by Belinda Bauer, STATION ELEVEN by Emily St John Mandel, I LET YOU GO by Clare Mackintosh and WE ARE ALL MADE OF STARS by Rowan Coleman. I am also a huge Netflix addict, and love stories that are told in an ambitious, unusual way. Follow me on twitter @sameades for a bit more info!
I’m offering TWO two hour sessions of mentoring in person.
