Meyer to leave Echo Publishing to pursue writing career

Angela Meyer, publisher at Echo Publishing, is leaving the house to pursue a career in writing and freelance editing.

Meyer joined the team at Echo Publishing as a commissioning editor in 2014. In 2018 Echo became an imprint of Bonnier Books UK and Meyer was promoted to publisher. Meyer has published many award-winning and internationally published Australian books and a global number one bestseller, The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris.

“I am enormously grateful for my five years at Echo, for everything I have learnt and every experience with my colleagues in Australia and internationally, with my authors, and among the pages of manuscripts … I’m looking forward to finding a new balance between writing and editing, and I’m excited to watch Echo continue to go from strength the strength.”

Meyer’s debut novel, A Superior Spectre, was published by Peter Bishop Books (Ventura) in Australia and Saraband in the UK, and has been shortlisted for four literary awards.

“I would like to thank Angela for being a brilliant colleague, outstanding publisher, and a shining light in the Australian publishing community.”

Kate Parkin, M.D. of Adult Trade Publishing, Bonnier Books UK said: “We wish Angela the very best for her future and thank her for her outstanding contribution. The wonderful Benny [Agius] and the team at Echo will continue to work with our stable of excellent authors, publishing books that connect with readers all over the world, seeking to find new voices, and taking the list from strength to strength.”

Benny Agius, General Manager, Echo Publishing said: “I would like to thank Angela for being a brilliant colleague, outstanding publisher, and a shining light in the Australian publishing community. We will miss her. Echo Publishing has an outstanding list and I am looking forward to building on our past and expanding on our future with our wonderful authors and the brilliant books they write. The only way is up!”

Angela Meyer said: “I am enormously grateful for my five years at Echo, for everything I have learnt and every experience with my colleagues in Australia and internationally, with my authors, and among the pages of manuscripts. I am proud of what I have achieved and I cannot imagine a future where I don’t still work with other writers and on books. I’m looking forward to finding a new balance between writing and editing, and I’m excited to watch Echo continue to go from strength the strength.”

Meyer will leave Echo Publishing at the end of October. The company is currently recruiting for a replacement.
