In the run up to the Frankfurt Book Fair, it’s been a fabulous week for the Foreign Rights Department… But first, we’re kicking things off with a cover reveal.
The cover for Danielle Jawando’s stunning Young Adult novel, And The Stars Were Burning Brightly, has been revealed and it’s absolutely gorgeous. The novel is published in March 2020, and we can’t wait!
It was a very special day for Teresa Driscoll this week. Her latest chilling thriller, I Will Make You Pay was published by Amazon / Thomas and Mercer, and on Teresa’s birthday, no less! And the celebrations didn’t stop there…
I Will Make You Pay also received a brilliant write up from the Sunday Mirror, calling it a “slick psychological thriller”.
Excited to see @TheSundayMirror recommending my new book #iwillmakeyoupay as a ‘slick psychological thriller ‘… worth Staying In for !

The outdoor campaign for The Places I’ve Cried in Public has also started and it looks incredible…

And on the foreign rights front…
Ashley Audrain’s The Push has sold to Forlagid in Iceland, taking the total number of territories sold to an outstanding 30. This truly is an exceptional number since mid-June when Ashley first signed with the Agency!
Madeleine Milburn, Liane-Louise Smith, Georgina Simmonds and Hayley Steed will all be heading out to the Frankfurt Book Fair next week. There they will hold 162 meetings with editors from all over the world, selling international rights for our brilliant authors. Check back in soon for a full update once the dust has settled!
