We’re thrilled to announce that we have signed two new psychological thrillers from Kathryn Croft. Associate Publisher Lydia Vassar-Smith signed World English Language rights from Hannah Todd at the Madeleine Milburn Agency.  The first book will publish in July 2023. 

Lydia says,

‘I am absolutely delighted to have signed two more books with Kathryn. She is a brilliantly page-turning writer and an absolute genius in terms of coming up with a gasp-worthy concept. Readers are going to absolutely love these two new thrillers!’

Commissioning Editor Lucy Frederick has signed a World All Languages deal, including audio, Film & TV, for one nail-biting psychological thriller with a whiplash-inducing final twist from Arianne Richmonde, set to publish in summer 2023.

Lucy says,

‘I am overjoyed to be working with Arianne Richmonde on another one of her brilliantly twisty psychological thrillers. Arianne is the queen of dark relationship dynamics and simmering tension, and The Prenup is the perfect example of her excellently executed twists and characters that draw you right into their lives – whether you want to be there or not…! I can’t wait to share this story with readers.’

Arianne says, 

I feel so lucky to be continuing my journey with Bookouture and thrilled to be working with Lucy. She has a great instinct for what works in a story and she is brilliant at honing ideas with plenty of twisty surprises that will entertain readers. I can’t wait for The Pre-Nup to hit the shelves!

We are also beyond excited to share the news that we have signed another four nail-biting psychological thrillers from bestselling author L.G. Davis.

Commissioning Editor Rhianna Louise signed the deal for World All Language and Audio rights for four unputdownable psychological thrillers. Two will publish in 2023 and two in 2024.

Rhianna says,

‘It’s an absolute honour to be bringing more of Liz’s totally pulse-pounding thrillers into the world. This year we published four incredible bestselling thrillers and readers have just devoured them! They can’t get enough of the gasp-out-loud twists and the high-octane suspense on every page. It really is a joy to work with Liz and I can’t wait to see these upcoming books fly.”

Liz says, 

‘I’m thrilled to continue this journey with Bookouture. The team of editors, copywriters, cover artists, marketers, and everyone else involved in the publication of my previous four psychological thrillers were an absolute joy to work with.

I’m incredibly grateful to my editor, Rhianna, who has been there every step of the way to advise and guide me through the entire process of planning, writing, editing, and publishing the books.  I couldn’t be more delighted to be part of the Bookouture family, and I look forward to what lies ahead.’
