The Bookseller’s Alison Bone reported yesterday that Hodder & Stoughton publisher Nick Davies has been tempted away by Canongate to be its new editorial director, replacing Anya Serota, who has been promoted to publishing director. Davies, who begins at Canongate on September 4, said that he had not been looking to leave Hodder, “but the job that Jamie and Anya have asked me to do is just too tempting”. At Hodder, Davies focused primarily on non-fiction titles, publishing books by authors including Billie Piper, Iain Johnstone and Simon Reid-Henry.
