Bookouture re-sign Browne, Kovach and Heald
We are totally thrilled to announce that we have re-signed new contracts with some of your favourite thriller fiction authors.
Commissioning editor Helen Jenner has acquired world all language rights to three new books by psychological thriller author Sheryl Browne publishing in 2020 and 2021.
Helen said of the deal,
‘I am absolutely delighted to be working with Sheryl on three new books. She is a master of psychological thrillers, delivering twist after twist and knocking the socks of readers with her explosive plots.’
‘I’m over the moon to have signed with Bookouture for another three titles and look forward to bringing you more psychological thrills with the help of my wonderful editor, Helen. I’m still pinching myself, to be honest. It really is my dream come true.’
And Helen Jenner has also signed a new deal with crime writer Carla Kovach. She has acquired world all languages rights to four more books in the popular Detective Gina Harte series. All four books will publish in 2020 and 2021.
Helen said of the deal,
‘Carla delivers brilliant concepts and clever plot twists that always keep her readers guessing. From the moment I read the first book in this series, The Next Girl, I knew Carla was a writer I wanted to work with and six books down the line that’s still the case. I am beyond excited to work on these next four books.’
‘I am absolutely delighted to be offered a further four book contract with Bookouture! My editor, Helen, is amazing and I’m super thrilled that we will continue working together. I’ve loved every moment of being a Bookouture writer. The team and my fellow authors are fantastic and I’m so proud to be a part of it.’
Associate Publisher Christina Demosthenous has acquired World All Language rights to two new novels by bestselling psychological thriller author, Ruth Heald, publishing in 2020. The first book focuses on the twisted, shocking relationship between a marriage counsellor and her client, a wife, where neither woman is who she seems, and the second revolves around a wedding that goes horribly wrong.
Christina said of the deal,
‘I could not be more excited to be publishing more psychological thrillers by Ruth. Both of Ruth’s first books, The Mother’s Mistake and The Woman Upstairs, have been bestsellers, with readers loving her sleek, sharp, writing, her pacey, twisty plots and her utterly flawless characterisation. I’m so proud to be Ruth’s editor – roll on 2020!’
‘I’m delighted to sign a second contract with Bookouture. I love working with Christina and the team and feel very lucky that I will continue to benefit from the editorial insight and ongoing support that Bookouture provide.’
