The Myriad Editions Salon with Elizabeth Haynes, Una, Jonathan Kemp, Sally O’Reilly and Ian Williams
Wednesday 9th November 2016
19:00 at Waterstones, London - Piccadilly
Elizabeth Haynes. Elizabeth’s psychological thriller INTO THE DARKEST CORNER was published by Myriad in 2011. This was a perfect example of seeing a rough manuscript with real promise and working through several drafts to get it right. She has returned to Myriad to publish her latest psychological thriller, NEVER ALONE, in October.
Una ‘s graphic memoir was published last year: BECOMING UNBECOMING was a real breakthrough in terms of reach, reviews and mainstream publicity for a graphic novel. Una was interviewed on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, shortlisted for the Emma Humphreys Award and her memoir was listed as 'Book of the Year' by a variety of media.
Jonathan Kemp is a fine literary writer whose debut novel, LONDON TRIPTYCH, won the Author's Club Best First Novel Award. He followed up with TWENTYSIX and GHOSTING, both of which illustrate his commitment to form and linguistic originality.
Sally O'Reilly, a former journalist with two contemporary novels published by Penguin, sent submitted DARK AEMILIA to Myriad who then relaunched her writing career as a literary/historical novelist, successfully selling US rights to Picador and translation in Italy. Sally is now working on a historical spy thriller based around Aphra Behn and slavery, and is one of the key figures in the movement for New Historical Fiction.
Ian Williams is a practicing GP and former OCD sufferer. He came to Myriad’s attention through the publisher’s First Graphic Novel Competition. His graphic novel THE BAD DOCTOR was widely praised and reviewed, including in the NYT and by Alison Bechdel. Myriad sold translation and US rights, secured Ian a regular column in the Guardian ('Sick Notes') and are now working on his follow-up, THE LADY DOCTOR. Ian is also the founder of GraphicMedicine.org and will be helping Myriad to build a niche-within-a-niche list of Graphic Medicine titles.
