Bookouture Associate Publisher Ellen Gleeson has acquired World All languages rights, plus audio, Film and TV rights for two more books in Liz Eeles’ bestselling Heaven’s Cove series, both to publish in 2023.
‘Liz is a complete joy to work with and I am so proud of the incredible Heaven’s Cove series. The new books have everything readers love about Liz’s writing: the beautifully escapist Devon setting, lots of secrets and complex family dynamics, and a delicious romance. It’s a pleasure to edit and publish these gorgeous books, and to see this series go from strength to strength.’
‘I’m thrilled to have signed a new contract with brilliant Bookouture, especially as it means more Heaven’s Cove books! I loved writing the first four books in the series and I can’t wait to work on two more with my wonderful editor, Ellen.’
Bookouture Commissioning Editor Natalie Edwards has acquired World All Language Rights for a wonderful two-book series of dazzling Greek beach reads from women’s fiction author Sue Roberts.
‘When Sue shared her ideas for these two feel-good summer titles, I was immediately whisked away to the sunshine of Greece. Sue’s gorgeous writing and stunning settings combine to make the perfect escapist stories and I cannot wait to publish these novels!’
‘I am thrilled to be continuing my writing journey with Natalie and Bookouture and cannot wait until next year when two new summer reads will be out there, hopefully appealing to regular readers of my books, as well as new ones! Set in the hills of Crete, we even meet some adorable four legged friends for those of you who are dog lovers. I look forward to sharing this new, two book series with you.’
