We are really pleased to say that Dom Kingston has joined Nosy Crow on an “attached freelance” basis this month, working on publicity (media coverage and events) for Nosy Crow’s list.
Dom’s most recent role was Senior Publicity Manager for Macmillan Children’s Books. He left at the end of April to establish himself as a freelance publicist. Prior to Macmillan Children’s Books, Dom was Senior Press Officer at HarperCollins. He’s worked closely with authors and illustrators including Axel Scheffler, Julia Donaldson, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Michael Morpurgo and Darren Shan as well character brands and TV and movie tie-ins from Paddington to Lord of the Rings.
“I am delighted to be working with Nosy Crow – it’s a publisher with a great team, a great list and a great profile, so it’s a terrific opportunity for me as I start my freelance career. Kate’s enthusiasm for both the book and the digital side of the business is absolutely contagious. And working closely with authors and illustrators has always been a highlight of the job so I can’t wait to get to know everyone on the Nosy Crow list!”
It’s great to be able to attract someone of Dom’s calibre and with his experience. We’ve heard how much authors and illustrators love Dom! We swooped on him as soon as we heard he’d resigned to set up on his own. We look forward to Dom amplifying the noise that we’re already making at Nosy Crow, and we think that he’ll really enjoy the dynamic, informal and technology-aware culture we have here”.
