Publisher Claire Bord acquired US eBook rights for three titles, A Vintage Wedding, A French Affair and A Secret Garden from Bill Hamilton at AM Heath.
Katie Fforde has written over twenty bestsellers and has sold in excess of 3 million copies worldwide. Bookouture published A Summer at Sea, Summer of Love and Recipe for Love in the US last year.
Claire Bord said of the deal:
Last year, Bookouture sold over 2.5 million copies in the US, achieving eleven Kindle top tens including a no.1 bestseller. It’s a huge market for us and one in which we are continuing to build momentum for our authors. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring Katie’s much-loved novels to her growing US audience.
Katie Fforde commented,
I do hope these books, full of English eccentricity and plenty of romance, hit the spot with US readers. I love working with Bookouture.
Bill Hamilton, Katie Fforde’s agent, said,
We’re delighted to commit more of Katie’s UK bestsellers to Bookouture’s US list and look forward to seeing the sales grow through their unique epublishing model.
The three titles in the deal A Vintage Wedding, A French Affair and A Secret Garden will be published over the summer 2017.
