Jamie-Lee Nardone, director of the Black Crow PR and marketing agency, is to cover Sophie Goodfellow’s maternity leave for indie crime publisher Orenda Books.
Nardone will work on upcoming campaigns include Psychopaths Anonymous, from international bestseller Will Carver; Demon, the fifth in Matt Wesolowski’s award-winning Six Stories series, which blends horror, crime and social commentary; and Bitter Flowers, billed as a "stunning, sophisticated, tension-packed thriller" from bestselling Norwegian author Gunnar Staalesen.
“My very first book campaign was a crime thriller, and I’ve been fortunate to work with some of the best authors in the industry—Orenda’s are no different. I absolutely love the crime community, and I’m so excited to shout about Karen [Sullivan, founder and publisher of Orenda Books] and her fabulous books," Nardone said.
Sullivan added: "I’ve known Jamie-Lee for years, and have always been impressed by her work and, of course, her immense professionalism, enthusiasm and passion for books, and all things crime. I can’t think of anyone better to take over from Sophie, and Jamie-Lee is an absolutely perfect fit for our team. We’re looking forward to many months of inspiring partnership."
