We were thrilled to be named Digital Business of the Year at The Bookseller Industry Awards last night.
Praised for our sales growth, impressive profitability, as well as digitally savvy marketing and balancing of digital and print, the judges said: “Head of Zeus has a simple but brilliant plan that it executes consistently well.”
Today, we launched MysteriousPress in paperback editions on Amazon in addition to the current eBook editions.
MysteriousPress.com is the world’s foremost specialist crime list. Founded by Otto Penzler in 1975, it represents the best from a century of mystery writing with authors such as Ellery Queen, Mary Roberts Rinehart, Donald Westlake, Joseph Wambaugh, Charlotte MacLeod and Rex Stout on the list.
I have been working with my new editor for three months now, rewriting and editing my new book, The Dress. I’ve never been through such a forensic, painstaking and, at times, painful process but it has been worth it. I moved publishing houses to work with Head of Zeus' brilliant, insightful and talented editor who, among others, has worked with Maeve Binchy and the recently deceased Colleen McCollough. Even though it has been an adjustment getting into the swing of new ways of working, I feel privileged to have been given this opportunity.
This is it. London Book Fair arrival day. Whoop! Let me see those hands!
We are joining forces with national charity The Reading Agency to launch an exciting competition. We hope ‘Your Story Her Words’ will encourage everyday people to share their own stories.
The competition offers everyone who enters the chance to have his or her own personal, extraordinary story be the inspiration for bestselling author Amanda Prowse’s next story, and become a real-life literary hero or heroine!
Head of Zeus is delighted to announce the appointment of Suzanne Sangster as Publicity Director.
