NEWS FROM ANGRY ROBOT BOOKS
Introducing Penny to the Angry Robot Team
Hail Robot Army!
As some of you may already know, I will soon be leaving to prepare for my own debut...my first baby! With that, we have been actively searching for my maternity cover, someone crazy enough to fit in with us here at AR HQ and capable of negotiating the world we inhabit.
I am delighted to introduce you to Penny Reeve. Penny joined us as an intern back in February and has impressed from Day One. She comes to us from a public relations background and is also the community editor for LeftLion magazine, a Nottingham culture magazine. She has wonderful experience with all things publicity and I've no doubt will be a great addition to our team.
Penny's move from intern to employee is immediate, and you can reach her at email@example.com. We're throwing her in at the deep end with blog tours for authors such as Danielle L. Jensen, Ishbelle Bee, Susan Murray, Rod Duncan, and Alyc Helms on the immediate agenda. If you'd like to take part in any of these tours, drop Penny a line. I'm here until Friday 29 May, and am already thinking of how quiet my life will be without my Robot Army...until I realise there'll be a tiny baby screaming for my attention. But for now, here's more on Penny:
Penny started her working life dealing with criminals but quickly realised that the novels of Tom Robbins suited her tastes, rather than those of Fyodor Dostoyevsky, so she left to spend the next few years roaming the world teaching children and Tibetan monks the English language.
On returning to the UK, Penny took up a public relations job and worked for used cooking oil, potatoes and retail. However the lure of the Robot Overloads was too much for her and, pulled in by their gravitational force Penny took up an internship. The rest, as they say, is history.
That's all, folks.
Do reach out to greet Penny, and help make her feel at home. I've told her how fantastic our Robot Army are and I've no doubt you'll all get along wonderfully.
