Bookouture is delighted to announce that Commissioning Editor Susannah Hamilton has signed another book from digital bestselling psychological thriller author Maria Frankland. His Ex-Wife is a taut, tense, page-turning domestic thriller which will publish in October 2024, to follow Maria’s two other front-list publications with Bookouture in 2024.

Susannah says,

‘I absolutely adore working with Maria – her brilliant ideas, amazing characterisation, clever plots and incredible imagination are second to none. Her readers know and love her from her self-published stories, and I can’t wait to bring her novels to more readers around the world. She is such a talented author, and His Ex-Wife is going to be a fantastic addition to her Bookouture publishing.’

Maria says,

‘I’m delighted to be working on another psychological thriller book with the incredible Bookouture team and in particular with Susannah, my brilliant editor. We have great fun bouncing ideas about and I can’t wait to bring both my existing readers and new ones into another gripping story.’

Bookouture is also delighted to announce the acquisition of four new psychological thrillers from Miranda Smith, bestselling author of The School Trip and Not My Mother. Publisher Ruth Tross completed the deal direct with the author.

Ruth says,

‘Every time I open a Miranda Smith suspense novel I know I’m in for a treat. Miranda is such a wonderful writer – her books come to life with rich characters, compelling hooks and surprising reveals. She tells a cracking story and explores the dark heart of humanity in the most brilliant way, and her thousands of fans will be overjoyed to know there are many more thrillers in store.’

Miranda says,

‘I’m thrilled to continue working with Ruth and the Bookouture team. We’ve now worked together on over ten books, and I’m excited to continue building that list in 2025 and 2026.’
