Dolby’s Imprint at Random House UK is Named

The Bookseller reports that Trevor Dolby and Rosie de Courcy‘s new imprint at Random House UK has been named Preface Publishing. The announcement comes simultaneously with the launch of the imprint’s Spring 2008 list, comprising A POINT OF VIEW by Lisa Jardine and THE CLEANER by Brett Battles (a debut spy thriller published this month by Bantam Dell.) Dolby, formerly publisher at HarperCollins, joined Random House in April to set up Preface as a new list straddling non-fiction and fiction. “I am delighted that Preface has developed at such a fast pace since its inception in April,” he said. “It is very exciting to be able to formally name the imprint and give it a strong identity.” De Courcy joined the company as publishing director in March.

Rosie De Courcy Joins Random House UK

DeCourcy.jpgThe Bookseller reports that veteran publisher Rosie de Courcy has joined Trevor Dolby‘s new imprint at Random House. She starts immediately as publishing director of the as-yet unnamed imprint, with plans to publish in the region of 6 to 8 novels each year. De Courcy was a founding member of three start ups in British publishing – Futura, Century and Orion. Most recently she has been editor at Little, Brown UK.

Dolby said: “When I first discussed the imprint with Random House, Rosie was the only person I wanted to publish the fiction. She is quite simply an iconic publisher, one of the great editors of the last 25 years. It’s a privilege and a thrill that she’s agreed to join me.”
