Master of Pennies
At the heart of every successful business is someone who understands finance and processes. In 3P it is Caroline. As one of the two founding partners, Caroline keeps a cool head and makes sure everyone gets paid on time. With a fascination for engineering and riding on a combine harvester, it makes perfect sense that she takes care of the order and chaos that can exist in a business. As the business has continued to grow it is Caroline that has formulated many of the systems that keep everything flowing.
Master of Ideas
The other side of the coin. Andy wrote the first two books that kicked off the enterprise that became 3P Publishing. The love of books and a matching birthday were the tentacles that drew Caroline and Andy together to form the company – he is the other founding partner. Andy’s strengths lie in the creative areas of writing and marketing; two essentials for the modern author. He can be relied upon to quote random historical stories that are usually gruesome and an ability to remember dates that have little interest to most people that he talks to.
Master of Precision
With an eye for detail Lauren takes care of the layout and proof-reading. Spotting the missing full-stops and misspelt worms. (Just kidding.) She is the one who will make your book look like, well, a book. An adventurer at heart, don’t ask her about her trip along the Oregon Trail. She wasn’t eaten by a bear, we were pleased about this, but something else definitely got to her. She found Ben Nevis a safer option.
Master of Grammar
Eagle-eyed and pedantic are excellent qualities for an editor and Rachel has them in abundance. With many years experience, Rachel can spot a mis-quoted quote from a mile off. As for a semi-colon in the wrong place or a random capital letter Rachel will hunt it down and correct if for the good of mankind. A mum of two, Rachel is used to tidying up someone else’s mess and making it look good.
Master of Design
Don’t judge a book by its cover says many a fool. Everyone judges a book by its cover and that’s especially true of readers. Making sure that your cover catches the eye is Marie-Louise. A thinker, a creator and an excellent graphic designer means you’ll get something truly striking – which is exactly what you want.
Master of the Web
This website you are reading wouldn’t be possible without Simon. He has guided us through the twists and turns of coding and design and brought us the bright and beautiful site you see before you. With an unhealthy interest in Star Wars and Lego we do fear for his sanity but we are assured that the geeks will inherit the Earth so we are happy to be in his hands.
Master of Content
Simon may be the master but his Jedi protégé is the backbone for getting everything done. She also has endless amounts of patience as she deals with incessant questions from Caroline and Andy. The teamwork of Simon and Nammie (as everyone calls her) means that the online shop and the website work in perfect harmony. Her desire to seek the perfect KFC drumstick set her apart from the usual protégé.
