Introducing Sarah Wray, September's newest team member, who we're thrilled to have on board ~
Hello, I’m Sarah! I’ve just joined September to help with operations, direct sales, marketing and a bit of everything else. But this isn’t my first time working with their gorgeous books: I previously looked after September when I worked with our sales and distribution agents, Turnaround.
Right from the start, I fell in love with Alice Stevenson’s Ways to Walk in London, which gave me a newfound love for the city that changed my life. I also adored Angela Kiss’s How to be an Alien in England, which helped me make light of the ups and downs of being an expat in the UK – something this expat has often needed over the years! Sharon Blackie’s If Women Rose Rooted guided me as I made the choice to leave London for Devon, and I absolutely can’t wait for her next book, The Enchanted Life, which has one of the best covers I’ve seen in some time!
At the moment, I’m working with Molly Hatch’s A Passion for China, which has brought back such a lot of happy memories of staring through the glass panes of my grannies’ cabinets as a child. We didn’t own or eat off much fancy china, but these few beautiful heirlooms were a real point of pride for the family matriarchs, who’d inherited them over the years. Molly’s hand-drawn depictions of popular china patterns and her memories of china’s place in her family home are simply lovely. I’m also gearing up for Halloween with Eight Ghosts. Who among us hasn’t stood in an English Heritage property and felt a sense that something spooky was going on? Among the contributors is one of my all-time favourite authors, Jeanette Winterson, so this has moved right to the top of my TBR pile!
