So excited this afternoon to share the news that Keshini Naidoo, Associate Publisher at Bookouture, has acquired WEL rights from Jane Gregory at Gregory and Company in a four-book deal with Barbara Copperthwaite. Her first book for Bookouture will be published in summer 2017, with book two following in autumn.
I’ve long been watching Barbara’s career with huge interest – her talent for creating charismatic, unforgettable characters, coupled with the darkest storytelling, is second to none. She’s already achieved fantastic sales with her self-published titles, and I’m now looking forward to us working together to take her readership to new heights.
Barbara said of the deal:
I’ve admired publishing powerhouse Bookouture from afar for some time now – their ethos, quality, success…and the fact all of their authors are not only super-talented but so friendly and supportive of one another. To be welcomed into Bookouture’s family is a dream come true, and I’m so excited about what the future holds for this partnership.
