Tom Lloyd

Tom Lloyd was born in 1979 in Berkshire. After a degree in International Relations he went straight into publishing where he still works. He never received the memo about suitable jobs for writers and consequently has never been a kitchen-hand, hospital porter, pigeon hunter, or secret agent. He lives in Oxford, isn’t one of those authors who gives a damn about the history of the font used in his books and only believes in forms of exercise that allow him to hit something.

I’m the Publicity Manager for Gollancz. If you’ve seen the movie Bridget Jones’ Diary, you’ll know a book publicity job involves answering the phone every three hours and never having a single book on your desk. In reality, I answer the phone a lot and my desk and shelves are groaning in books. I also don’t look anything like Renée Zellweger. When I am at my desk I’m trying to rustle up press coverage for authors in print and online and, when I’m occasionally let out, I can be found escorting authors on bookshop tours and to conventions. Three things make me very happy: Cake, beer and Wonder Woman. You can also follow me on Twitter: @jon_weir
