Jen

Jen works in the Gollancz/Indigo marketing team. Originally from New York, she talks too loud (and far too fast). When not marketing books or devising evil genius plans (as she prefers to think of marketing) she reads too much, adventures as much as possible and is learning the difference between US and UK English (it’s a complex process). She has a weakness for brilliant YA novels, fairy tales, myths, chocolate tea and trashy American TV. She also has a pathological hatred of mayo. You can follow her on Twitter: @gennmcmenemy

Cover Reveal: Crashing Heaven

Gollancz Team: - January 27th, 2015
Al Robertson, Cover Reveal

We’re delighted to be able to exclusively reveal the cover for a superb SF debut that we’re publishing in June.
