It’s a wonderful sense of deja vu to be back contracting for Penguin this year, some ten years after working in-house as head of marketing and publicity. I was approached to provide publicity for a number of key titles across a a variety of genres including literary fiction, NZ non-fiction, international mass market fiction, memoir, humour and food. I had the pleasure of generating publicity for Jeremy Corbett’s Which Way Up? and fabulous foodie, Penny Oliver and her new cookbook, Single Serve. I worked with Lloyd Jones some 11 years ago on his novels, Paint Your Wife and Here at the End of the World We Learn to Dance so I was delighted that Penguin engaged me to publicise his memoir, A History of Silence.
