Bookouture re-signs bestsellers Miller and Ragsdale
We’re thrilled to announce that Commissioning Editor Maisie Lawrence has acquired world rights to a new bookclub novel from Amazon charts bestseller Beth Miller, exploring last goodbyes sand second chances.
‘Working with Beth is an absolute dream. She was the first author I signed when I joined Bookouture and she’s an utterly astonishing writer. Every time I read one of her books, I know I’m going on an extraordinary emotional journey, but one that is always so uplifting. I can’t wait to meet the characters in this new novel and to publish it with Beth–I know it’ll stay with me forever.‘
‘I’m delighted to be writing another novel with Bookouture, especially one that’s so close to my heart: the last few years have been unusually full of goodbyes and second chances. I’m so looking forward to seeing how this new story unfolds. One second chance I’m particularly happy about is getting to work once again with the editing powerhouse that is Maisie. Let our in-depth discussions about character motivation commence!’
Commissioning Editor Maisie Lawrence has also acquired World All Languages rights in two new emotional women’s fiction novels from bestselling author Alison Ragsdale, both publishing in 2025.
‘Every time I start reading one of Alison’s novels, I know I’m going on an extraordinary emotional journey. Tissues are a must! Alison is an absolute genius at asking the questions about our families and loved ones we dare never speak aloud. Her characters absolutely walk off the page and I can’t wait to read these two new novels. It’s a real privilege to be working with her. I know her readers will absolutely love the way she’ll explore an amazing dilemma in them both!‘
‘I am over the moon to have the opportunity to continue working with my brilliant editor, Maisie, and the dynamic Bookouture team. Writing from the heart has always been my goal while setting my books in the stunning Highlands of my homeland, Scotland, and having this insightful group of professionals embrace that is truly a dream. I can’t wait to bring more emotionally charged tales to life and create these new casts of characters. I hope to touch readers’ hearts with their struggles and triumphs.‘
