Meet the Team
THE ENTICE TEAM
One of our most frequently asked questions is who we are and what we do! So here’s a little introduction to the key members of our Entice team
Anna Boatman: I joined Little, Brown at the beginning of February 2013, having previously worked for Harlequin on the Mills & Boon and MIRA imprints. I work with around thirty of Piatkus’s authors including global bestsellers such as J.R. Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Christine Feehan and Julia Quinn.
As Senior Editor, my other main focus is buying new authors for the Piatkus and Entice lists. As such, I’m always on the hunt for new and exciting voices with a growing platform either in the States or in the UK. I’m looking for very commercial women’s fiction storytellers to whom readers wish to return time and time again, from lush Historical romances to witty, intelligent chick-lit to spell-binding paranormal authors and women’s fiction with a twist. There’s also nothing I love more than discovering fresh and exciting genres, so I’m keen to see more New Adult submissions as well as any authors who bring new life to tried-and-tested themes.

Dominic Wakeford: As Junior Editor for Piatkus Fiction I have a fantastically varied role, working on both the genre side of the list with Anna and also on our Superlead authors and bookclub fiction with Emma Beswetherick.
I’m on the lookout for commercial women’s fiction with a strong voice, memorable characters and sparkling writing, books that allow me to escape daily life and be transported to extraordinary places. I’m also active on our social media channels, be that sharing exclusive content from our fabulous authors or going through your favourite ‘book boyfriends’ – it’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it!
I joined the Piatkus team in January 2015, having previously worked in Editorial at Constable & Robinson, and in the ebook department at Random House. Feel free to get in touch with me on Twitter @domwakeford – no comments about my absurd hat, please.
