Bookouture - digital publisher of brilliant fiction
Holly Martin has published ten books with Bookouture, since signing with us in 2015. Her gorgeous romantic comedies have established her as a seasonal favourite in both Christmas and Summer reading, with over a quarter of a million copies sold.

We are therefore delighted to announce that Holly’s Hope Island books – Summer at Buttercup Beach, Christmas at Mistletoe Cove and Spring at Blueberry Bay – will now be released in paperback in partnership with Sphere in the UK, from Summer 2018 to Spring 2019.

Associate Publisher Natasha Harding has also acquired World English Language rights from Hayley Steed at The Madeline Milburn Literary Agency for three stunning new books set in Sandcastle Bay, for the Bookouture list. The first title, The Holiday Cottage by the Sea, will publish in April 2018.

Natasha Harding, Bookouture Associate Publisher said,

I’m delighted to continue working with Holly Martin as her publishing continues to grow. Holly has such a wonderful fan base of readers – and I know they are going to love the Sandcastle Bay setting for her three new feel-good novels. We’re thrilled to be teaming up with the brilliant team at Sphere to publish her bestselling Hope Island novels into the paperback market. It’s going to be an exciting year!

Cath Burke, Sphere Fiction Publisher, said,

I’m delighted to be working with the lovely people at Sphere and so excited to see the Hope Island series going into paperback. Being able to share my stories with new readers is wonderful. This year, I’m so happy to be continuing working with Bookouture on the release of my new romantic comedy series, set in the tiny seaside village of Sandcastle Bay. I hope people will fall in love with the quirky village characters and the charming village itself… I can’t wait for people to read them!

Hayley Steed at Madeline Milburn Literary Agency said,

It’s fantastic that Sphere will be taking Holly’s books into paperback. Her digital sales have been phenomenal and she’s a true brand name in the genre so we can’t wait to see her novels in print, and her new series continue her success with Bookouture too.

We do hope you will join us on Facebook and Twitter to join in the celebrations.
