We are so very excited to share that Publishing Executive Leodora Darlington has acquired world rights for three books in a new detective series from M. M. Chouinard, a research psychologist with a PhD from Stanford.
M. Chouinard’s first book is an absolutely unputdownable crime thriller with psychological suspense that sees the newly-promoted Detective Jo Fournier grapple with the responsibilities of her new position while trying to piece together her most difficult and dangerous case yet. The first title in the series will publish in May 2019, with book two following in September 2019 and book three in January 2020.
Leodora said of the announcement,
We’re exceptionally excited to be adding Michelle to our list of Bookouture authors. She has brought us a blinding new crime series with huge potential, and has used her specialist knowledge to provide us with richly complex and chilling characters. Her writing will have you reading her books in one sitting and sleeping with the lights on when you’re done! I can’t wait for readers to fall in love with this series and the lead character of Detective Jo Fournier as much as I have. Gripping, twisty and unputdownable—this is simply a series you won’t want to miss!
Michelle said of the announcement,
I’m beyond excited to be part of the Bookouture team! I know Leodora’s passion and skill will help make my novels the best they can be, and with so much talent at every level, the series couldn’t have a better home. I’m honoured and proud to be counted among the amazing authors here, and can’t wait for the world to meet Jo Fournier!
