For immediate release 

Breakwater Books is pleased to announce two new members joining the team at our HQ in St. John’s:   

George Murray has taken on the role of Marketing Manager. George Murray is the author of 10 literary titles, including: 7 books of poetry, 2 bestselling books of aphorisms, and a book for children, Wow Wow and Haw Haw, illustrated by Michael Pittman and published with Breakwater in 2014. He also teaches writing and has a long history of books and arts advocacy/commentary through,, national and local papers and magazines, arts organizations, and more. An old hand at marketing, George has previously promoted everything from coffee to beer to fire safety products to radio stations to entire university programs. After his last job, George swore he’d never come back to marketing, but the chance to work on books with the fantastic people at Breakwater was too tempting. 

Holly Nadeau is our new Publisher’s Assistant. Originally from St. Paul’s River, Quebec, Holly Nadeau attended Memorial University in Corner Brook specializing in English with a minor in Folklore in 2013. In 2020, Holly decided it was time to return to school to get her certification in Publishing from Toronto Metropolitan University where she decided to specialize in Marketing and Publicity for Children, Teen and Young Adult. When Holly is not working at making sure we run smoothly, she’s scrolling TikTok and Instagram when she should be finishing her next read. 

Please help us welcome them to the team by reaching out to connect! And keep an eye on our newsletter and social media platforms for more updates.
