Bookouture signs bestselling author Natalie Barelli
It is with great pleasure that we announce the news that Bookouture has acquired two new psychological thrillers from bestselling author Natalie Barelli. Associate Publisher Jessie Botterill did the deal for world rights direct with the author.
Natalie has had huge success self-publishing Missing Molly, The Loyal Wife, The Accident and The Housekeeper, and two titles in the Emma Fern series with Thomas & Mercer. Her first book with Bookouture, a gripping psychological thriller with a dark twist at its heart, will publish in November of this year, with a second to follow in March 2021.
‘I’ve long been a fan of Natalie’s nail-biting, totally twisty and unputdownable psychological thrillers, so you can just imagine my excitement when my suggestion that she work with Bookouture to build on her massive success was met with enthusiasm. I can’t wait to show her what we can do, and to watch her audience grow across the globe.’
‘I’ve been a big fan of Bookouture’s psychological thrillers since forever, so I am beside myself with excitement to be joining them. I can’t wait to work with Jessie and the team and see what twisted stories we can concoct together.’
