Today, we had our first internal meeting. Kate’s spent most of her last few years in meetings, so to have held out until our fifth week in these offices before having an internal meeting is a cheering reminder of the advantages of not being corporate. Camilla’s on the left and Imogen’s on the right and the one in the middle is that nice and capable Michelle Draycott from Imago .
Another reminder of the advantages of our scale and independence came from an agent today, who said in an email about something we are working on with him, “Also can I say how invigorating it is to deal with a quick, small, responsive, enthusiastic publisher. Life elsewhere can be wading through treacle.”
There’s no treacle with the Crow, we say.
