Covid diaries: Ore Agbaje-Williams

The first time I’d worked from home – in February 2019 – I’d had a wisdom tooth taken out and the swelling made me look like Frankenstein’s monster. An understandable reason for not wanting to be in the office, and not needing to be. I worked from my room, didn’t have a desk and had never even... Continue reading at The Bookseller

Covid diaries: the education entrepreneur

Walking into the office and seeing the team working away has quickly become the highlight of my day.

Covid diaries: the bestselling author

It's no secret that most authors are introverts. That doesn't mean that we don't enjoy bookshop events and literary festivals. Who doesn't love talking about their books or their writing process? But afterwards, we are spent, drained of energy, and need to recharge. Writing is a solitary... Continue reading at The Bookseller

Lockdown diaries: changing times

In terms of technology, we were lucky to be well set up for remote working: our company had already made sure we were equipped with the things we needed to work from home, so when it was announced that the office was closing, I was able to carry on and keep things moving.

Lockdown diaries: the book PR

I work in comms and my whole work life (and my actual life come to think of it!) is based on the premise that I will always be around people and I’m constantly planning events and parties and book tours… so when all of that very suddenly got put on hold, it was much harder for me to wrap my head...
