New appointments and acquisitions at John Murray Press

Hodder & Stoughton's new division John Murray Press has made key appointments in their sales and communications departments. Ben Gutcher, previously Digital Key Account Director at Hodder & Stoughton, has begun his new role as Sales Director for John Murray Press, overseeing sales across all five imprints within the new division: John Murray (Publishers), Hodder Faith, Consumer Learning, Two Roads and Saltyard Books. Hodder Publicity Director Rosie Gailer has been appointed Communications Director for the new division, and Lyndsey Ng has also moved across to the John Murray Press communications department as Publicity Manager. The moves come as part of the Hodder & Stoughton restructure, creating specialist sales, publicity and marketing teams for the divisions. It signals the start of an exciting second half of 2013 for John Murray Press, with highlight titles over the coming months including the much anticipated third volume of Patrick Leigh Fermor's travel trilogy, THE BROKEN ROAD, Michael Rosen's ALPHABETICAL, the official story of the discovery of Richard III’s remains THE KING’S GRAVE, and SCHOTTENFREUDE, the new book by bestseller Ben Schott. John Murray Press have also recently lined up a roster of high-profile titles for 2014 and beyond: John Murray Press Managing Director Nick Davies has acquired a new book by Amanda Vickery – the acclaimed historian, prize winning author and broadcaster will turn her gaze on the 1950s in MODERN GIRLS, a social history focusing on the lives of women in a period of enormous change. Davies struck a deal for UK & Commonwealth Rights with Clare Alexander at Aitken Alexander Associates. Davies has also bought rights to the letters of Roald Dahl, compiled by Donald Sturrock, whose 2011 biography of Dahl was widely praised. Dahl was a prolific letter writer from the age of 9 and for the last thirty years of his life he spent two hours a day on correspondence. Full of his wit and his darker, more troubled side, LETTERS FROM DAHL will be published to coincide with the Dahl centenary in 2016. Roland Philipps has struck a deal with Ed Victor for a new history of women in the twentieth century from acclaimed social historian Juliet Nicolson. Philipps has also secured World English language rights to a biography of Elizabeth Jane Howard by Artemis Cooper, author of 2012’s hugely acclaimed biography PATRICK LEIGH FERMOR. In a hotly fought auction, John Murray Publisher Georgina Laycock acquired WHAT IF? by ex-NASA scientist Randall Munroe, whose cult webcomic xkcd.com/ has had more than a billion page hits and featured in Wired magazine as one of their 20 key influences of the last 20 years, alongside Steve Jobs and online dating. WHAT IF (acquired from Caspian Dennis at Abner Stein and coming out in October 2014) will answer all your questions about science. In another auction, Laycock has just snapped up THE DARLEY ARABIAN, a vivid history of racing through the stories of 25 exceptional horses, from the Independent's award-winning racing correspondent Chris McGrath. The agent is Catherine Clarke at Felicity Bryan Associates and the book will come out in 2015. Meanwhile Publishing Director Eleanor Birne has also acquired two new titles: from Tracy Bohan at The Wylie Agency, a new book by Craig Taylor, NEW YORKERS, which will do the same for the US city as his much loved LONDONERS did for the UK capital and will be published in 2016; and from Barney Karpfinger at The Karpfinger Agency LILLIAN ON LIFE by Alison Lester, a brilliantly written, sassy debut novel that will appeal to readers of The Best Of Everything and fans of Mad Men. LILLIAN ON LIFE will be published in July 2014. Nick Davies says: ‘I am delighted to welcome Ben, Rosie and Lyndsey to the John Murray Press team. Their expertise is considerable and their passion for books infectious. They're already having a considerable impact on our strong autumn list and are helping to build an exciting new generation of writers here at John Murray.’ For further information or for more details on titles mentioned above, please contact Rosie Gailer: 020 7873 6452 or rosie.gailer@hodder.co.uk

Hodder & Stoughton to publish Ruth Davidson, Leader of Scottish Conservative Party

Hodder & Stoughton has commissioned Ruth Davidson, leader of the Scottish Conservative Party to write a book which will explore the life lessons learned by some of the world’s most powerful women. She will talk to a range of successful women, from world leaders to international pop stars; corporate CEOs to army special forces – each describing their own path, in the hope it can be a signpost for others. Ruth Davidson says: ‘This book is for every daughter, every mother, every aunt and every niece. It tracks the great societal shifts that have brought us to where we are as well as the individuals who have helped nudge us another fraction towards the tipping point. As more and more women own the future, I hope very much that this book will become an obsolete curio in my lifetime; a text to be puzzled over as to why it needed to be written at all. In the meantime, here are the life lessons learned by some of the world’s most powerful women’. Rupert Lancaster, Non-Fiction Publisher at Hodder & Stoughton comments: ‘I very much admire Ruth Davidson’s approach to politics, where she brings wit and clarity of thought to an arena where both are often sadly lacking. We’re delighted and honoured that she has chosen Hodder & Stoughton to be the publishers of her first book’. Hodder acquired world rights from Patrick Walsh at PEW Literary and will publish in 2018. Ruth Davidson studied English and Scottish Literature at Edinburgh University and, after graduation, worked as a journalist for more than 10 years, mostly with the BBC. She was elected to the Scottish Parliament for the Scottish Conservatives in May 2011 and was elected leader of the party in November of the same year. Ruth lives in Edinburgh with her partner, Jen, and their cocker spaniel, Wilson.
