P


an Macmillan caps a bumper year at The British Book Awards with this, its third Publisher of the Year title in six years.


Its successes in 2015 and 2017 were char-


acterised by huge bench strength across its publishing, with few blockbuster brands but many bestsellers, and superb work on midlist and backlist. That was true again in 2019, when it published nine of the UK’s top 50 authors and went only one week without a book in the TCM top 10. Established fiction names such as Peter James, David Baldacci and Jeffrey Archer all grew their sales; Adam Kay and Elton John delivered in non-fiction; and the children’s division had a record year. But 2019 also brought a new publishing


sensation: Kate Allinson and Kay Featherstone’s Pinch of Nom. Published brilliantly by Editor of the Year Carole Tonkinson, and with a campaign


behind it that won the Marketing Strategy of the Year, it was the biggest book of the year by a country mile. With more Nom books soon following, it has created a massive book brand from scratch in record time. Other numbers in Pan Mac’s year are hard to


argue with. Total TCM sales jumped 25.8% to a record £95.2m. Rights and other international sales rose nearly as much—securing the British Book Award for Export—and audio had a bumper year. There was critical acclaim too, with more than 60 prize shortlistings. “Pan Macmillan’s figures are incredible across


every bit of the company,” said the judges. They were also impressed by its care of authors and staff, charity partnerships and work on diversity. As one author put it: “I’m in awe of how Pan Macmillan retains such a friendly and warm atmosphere while operating at the scale and level that it does.”
