Sad to see that Clare Hall-Craggs is an early casualty of the Random House/Penguin merger/
Clare Hall-Craggs is leaving her job as publicity director of Random House Children’s Publishers following the merger with Penguin’s children’s division.
Hall-Craggs departs today (13th May) after 15 years at Random House, where she led a team of seven publicists. During her time at the company she has worked with authors including Jacqueline Wilson, Terry Pratchett, Shirley Hughes, Simon Mayo and Beth Reekles.
Apparently last month staff at Random House Children’s Publishers were told that up to 18 roles were at risk of redundancy.
