Clare Tillyer, acquisitions director of Blink Publishing, is moving to Michael O'Mara Books to expand its adult non-fiction programme.
Tillyer, credited with signing the first Youtube vlogger to publish a book, Alfie Deyes, joins Michael O’Mara on 3rd May 2016.
She joined Blink Publishing in September 2013, where she created an adult non-fiction list from scratch. Before that she was a director at John Blake Publishing.
Michael O’Mara, chairman of Michael O’Mara Books, said: "This is a key role for the future of MOM Books and we believe Clare is the perfect fit for an expanding adult list."
Tillyer added: “When I joined the Bonnier Group in 2013 after ten years at John Blake Ltd, I was tasked with creating an entirely new list. It has been a brilliant experience turning nothing but a vision into a real publishing success story.
"Creating a new list for O’Mara and helping build on their remarkable non-fiction programme is a wonderful opportunity I am very pleased to be given. I am looking forward to joining the team and getting started.”
