Jenny Geras, Publishing Director at Bookouture, has acquired World English rights in two new books from Tracy Bloom, bestselling author of No-One Ever Has Sex on a Tuesday. Geras did the deal with Madeleine Milburn at the Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency.
The deal reunites Tracy Bloom with Jenny Geras, who also published her at Arrow, after Bloom’s incredible self-publishing success with her first two novels. Bloom has now sold over half a million copies of her books.
The first book in the new contract will be No-one Ever Has Sex on Christmas Day, published this autumn, and the second, The LastLaugh, will publish in March 2018.
I am absolutely over the moon to be working with Tracy again. No-one Ever Has Sex on Christmas Day is the book I have always wanted Tracy to write and The Last Laugh is an incredibly exciting step for Tracy – a book that will bring her to a whole new audience as well as appealing to her existing fans. She is a huge talent and the most delightful author to work with.
Tracy Bloom said:
I have long admired Bookouture’s vision and excellence in digital publishing, making them the natural place for me to continue to grow my readership. It’s a massive bonus to get to work with Jenny again who has always been such a huge supporter of my writing.
Madeleine Milburn said:
I am also delighted to be reunited with Tracy at the MM Agency. Understanding the history of her career, I see Bookouture as the perfect home for her books offering the editorial and publishing expertise of a traditional publisher with the pricing flexibility and dynamism of self-publishing.
We do hope you will join us on Facebook and Twitter to welcome Tracy to the family.
