We’re absolutely delighted to be welcoming not one, but two new authors to the Bookouture team today.
Claire Bord, our Publishing Director, has snapped up global rights to Nigel May’s previously self-published and highly acclaimed bonkbusters Trinity and Addicted plus two new novels. Claire says,
‘Everyone says the bonkbuster is dead but Nigel’s bestselling novels are proof that the genre is very much alive and kicking. This is glam fiction at its very best.’
Trinity and Addicted will be re-released late Spring 2015 followed by the new novel in summer 2015.
Nigel May is a TV presenter and journalist. As a writer he has written for many of the UK’s most successful magazines and newspapers, specializing in showbiz and celebrity, as well as writing on subjects ranging from relationships through to travel.
And, if that wasn’t enough, we’re so excited that we’ll also be joined by Holly Martin, previously published by Carina and bestselling author of One Hundred Proposals and The Guestbook – who has signed for Bookouture on a four-book deal via agent Madeleine Milburn. Claire said,
‘We’re delighted to be publishing Holly at Bookouture. She writes wonderfully romantic, engrossing stories which have captured the hearts of readers.’
Holly’s new novel for Bookouture will be released in summer 2015, followed this autumn by the first in a new ‘White Cliff Bay’ series – following the lives of several characters living in a small fictional seaside town.
After writing and submitting to publishers and agents for four years, Holly Martin won the Sunlounger competition in July 2013. She went onto self-publish a fantasy series before winning the Carina Valentine’s Day competition in November 2013 and a three book publishing deal.
We do hope that you’ll join us in welcoming two more wonderfully talented authors to Bookouture!
