Publishing Executive Ellen Gleeson has acquired World All Language rights for two books directly from the author. Both are gripping standalone World War Two-set historical novels, which take place in the spectacular Tuscan countryside. Book 1 will publish in summer 2019 with the second book publishing in spring 2020.
Ellen Gleeson said,
I was completely swept away by Angela’s beautiful writing and I just know readers are going to feel the same. Her emotional stories of the tragic consequences of war, romance, heartbreak, and family secrets are compelling and deeply moving; and the enchanting setting of Tuscany makes these novels extra special. I’m so excited to share these stories with the world and I’m delighted that my first acquisition for Bookouture is such a promising voice in the historical fiction genre.
Angela Petch said,
I’m tingling inside at being welcomed to the Bookouture ‘family’, as they call themselves. I love that. Having tried the process alone, via self-publishing, I’m pinching myself. My lovely editor, Ellen Gleeson, says she has ‘fallen in love with my book’. Thank heavens I live in a lonely Tuscan valley and nobody can hear my excitable screams! The chance to be guided by a friendly, supportive and professional team is a dream and I can’t wait to get started.
