Lucy Gilmour boosts Aria team

Aria – the efirst commercial fiction imprint from Head of Zeus continues to expand.  Having launched its first titles in April 2016 and on target to reach £1 million turnover before its second birthday – Caroline Ridding, Aria Publisher, is delighted to announce the recruitment of Lucy Gilmour as editorial director, from 2nd October. Lucy brings with her over a decade of commercial acquisition experience; having cut her teeth at Mills and Boon, Lucy launched Harlequin's successful digital first imprint and most recently worked on the launch of HarperCollins' HQ imprint and published many successful authors there including the kindle sensation, Lucy Oliver.
 
Caroline Ridding says – ‘Over the last 18 months the imprint has gone from strength to strength and Lucy will bring a wealth of passion, energy and commercial intuition to the team. ‘
 
Lucy says 'I can't wait to work with Caroline and the team at Aria - they're commercial publishing personified. I love their dynamic and ambitious vision, and together I think we make a dream team. I will actively be working to build a list across the commercial fiction spectrum with a particular focus on crime and psychological suspense. I have also been tasked with developing our title lists for the US market, which contributes nearly 30% of Aria sales.
