Keshini Naidoo, Associate Publisher has secured World English rights in a two-book deal with Madeleine Milburn at the Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency, with the first book, Lock Up Your Daughter, to be published in Autumn 2016.

Keshini said of the deal:

I’ve long been a huge fan of Mel Sherratt, so I couldn’t be more thrilled that she will be joining us at Bookouture! Her suspenseful new series will showcase her trademark mix of complex characters and hard-hitting issues, coupled with emotive writing that will grip you from the very first page. I’m delighted to be publishing Mel and look forward to introducing her to a whole raft of new readers as well as delighting her army of fans.

Mel said:

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Keshini and Bookouture as Marcie Steele, and I can’t wait to work with them under my own name. Bookouture are a wonderful team, most of whom I’ve known on a professional level for quite some years, and I’m so excited by Keshini’s strategy, vision and forward thinking. I’ve learned so much from her and I particularly love her enthusiasm for her role.

Do join in the celebrations over on Facebook and Twitter and welcome Mel to the team.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
