Bookouture sign Kate Hewitt in a two-book deal

We are delighted to announce that bestselling author Kate Hewitt is joining Bookouture for a two-book deal.

Associate Publisher Isobel Akenhead acquired World all language and audio rights for two novels from Helen Breitwieser at Cornerstone Literary.

A Mother’s Choice is a heartbreakingly beautiful story about the complexities of adoption and motherhood. When struggling mother-of-three Heather finds herself pregnant again, she knows there is no way she can keep her baby. But – even when she thinks she’s found the perfect adoptive mother in Grace – how can she stop herself loving the child as it grows inside her? Neither Grace nor Heather are prepared for how tangled their lives will become, or how agonizingly difficult their choices will be. A Mother’s Choice will publish in May 2018 and will be followed by a second novel in September 2018.

Isobel Akenhead said,

I am so excited to be working with Kate. She’s a fantastic writer with an amazing skill for getting to the heart of a dilemma, and A Mother’s Choice is one of the most emotionally-powerful novels I have ever read. I guarantee the twist will break your heart, and that fans of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain and Kelly Rimmer will not be disappointed.

Kate Hewitt said,

I’m thrilled to be joining the Bookouture family, and have been so impressed by the quality of their stories as well as the innovation of their marketing. A Mother’s Choice is a story that is close to my heart and I’m so glad this book has found such a wonderful home.

It would be lovely if you were able to join us on Facebook and Twitter to celebrate.
