Sam Missingham - Founder, CEO - Lounge Books

Hi my name is Sam Missingham. I spend my time championing books and pressing them into people's hands. I have launched Lounge Books to do exactly that. I have been working at HarperCollins UK for 3 years as head of audience development. This has involved me running large-scale marketing campaigns that connect books and authors with readers. I have been lucky enough to work with wonderful authors and exceptionally talented people. Previous to HarperCollins I worked at the industry trade magazine, The Bookseller for 5 years. I ran their conferences, awards, marketing and was the co-founder of FutureBook.

I speak about book marketing all around the world, recently as keynote at the Sao Paulo book fair. I love speaking to students and mentoring people entering publishing. I also run the networking event #BoroughBookBash with a few industry friends.

I am a complete nerd for publishing and books. You can find me mostly on Twitter @samatlounge tweeting about books and publishing (I'm that predictable)

Thank you for reading this far and supporting what I'm trying to do with Lounge Books. 

Get in touch. I'd love to hear from you.

Meet my wonderful advisory board.
