Bookouture has acquired a brilliant women’s fiction debut – THE UNDERCOVER MOTHER from author Emma Robinson. Associate Publisher Isobel Akenhead acquired World rights in three novels.
Isobel Akenhead said:
I am absolutely delighted that my first acquisition with Bookouture is an author as fantastic as Emma. I felt an absolute buzz when I read THE UNDERCOVER MOTHER for the first time. Emma Robinson is the most hilarious and honest new writer, whose voice I am confident will resonate with women everywhere.
Emma Robinson added:
I am absolutely thrilled to sign with Bookouture for my debut novel. It is such a pleasure to work with a publisher who loves your characters as much as you do – I can’t wait to see where Isobel and the rest of the team will take us!
The novel is a fresh, funny look at the first year of motherhood for fans of The Unmumsy Mum and The Bad Mother’s Diary by Suzy K Quinn. It will be published in March 2018, with two more novels following later in the year.
