Orange Broadband New Writers Award Shortlist

The shortlist for the Orange Broadband New Writers Award has been announced:

Clare Allan, POPPY SHAKESPEARE (Bloomsbury)
Karen Connelly, THE LIZARD CAGE (Harvill Secker)
Roopa Farooki, BITTER SWEETS (Macmillan)

“We were very impressed with this year’s submissions for the Orange Broadband Award for New Writers,” said Jackie Kay, poet, novelist and Chair of judges. “We admired the breadth, depth, insight and talent of so many of these books and were spoilt for choice and impressed with the state of women’s fiction today. We are happy to see women take on such big and serious subjects, both personal and political, with such imaginative panache.”

Realignment for Random House UK

In Britain, The Random House Group has announced a number of changes and promotions as part of the Group’s growth strategy as it looks to the next stage in its development. First, Board Director Richard Cable, is to develop a new publishing portfolio. In this new role he will seek out “exciting and profitable new publishing enterprises” and further announcements should be expected during the year. But the big news is that the CHA arm – which include Century, Hutchinson, William Heinemann, Arrow, Random House Audio and Random House Books – will split into an entirely separate entity from the CCV line – which comprises Jonathan Cape, Chatto & Windus, Harvill Secker, Yellow Jersey Press, Vintage and Pimlico.

CHA will be led by Susan Sandon, who is newly promoted to Managing Director. In this new role, she will report to Peter Bowron, Group Managing Director, who takes on this responsibility alongside his current portfolio. CCV will be helmed by Cable with Dan Franklin acting as publisher for the whole line.
