We’re delighted to announce that Bookouture have signed a new two-book contract with women’s fiction author Brooke Harris. Commissioning Editor Abigail Fenton acquired World English Language rights from Hayley Steed of Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency.
Abigail Fenton said of the deal,
Brooke is an author I have had my eye on for a while, and so I am beyond thrilled to finally be welcoming her to the Bookouture list. Her gorgeous, evocative writing and emotional, relationship-driven storytelling have both broken and warmed the hearts of the whole Bookouture team, and I can’t wait to share these fantastic books with the world.
Brooke Harris said,
I am delighted to join the wonderful team at Bookouture. Lots of my favourite books are Bookouture titles. To be among such talented and lovely people is humbling and very exciting. Many thanks to my agent, Hayley Steed, and my editor, Abigail Fenton, for championing my story and believing in my words. I am very much looking forward to the road ahead.
Hayley Steed added,
It’s so rare to find a book that pulls as emotionally on your heartstrings as Brooke’s does – I was left feeling both bereft and uplifted after the final page. Brooke’s characters are beautifully written, and I defy anyone who can read this book and not shed a tear. I’m delighted that Abi and the incredibly dynamic Bookouture team will be bringing this wonderful story to readers next year!
The first book, which tells the story of Holly and her nana Annie, their loves and losses, will publish in March 2019, with the second to follow in July of that year.
