We are delighted to be welcoming debut romantic comedy author Drew Davies to Bookouture.
Commissioning Editor Christina Demosthenous acquired World English Language rights for two romantic comedies from Hattie Grunewald of Blake Friedmann.
The Shape of Us is a high-concept, funny and quirky read about four strangers whose paths cross as they fall in and out of love in the city of London. It will publish in November 2018, followed by a second book in May 2019.
Christina Demosthenous said,
I’m over the moon to be publishing Drew. The Shape of Us is a very special book. It doesn’t matter how many times I read and re-read it, it just gets better – making me laugh, cry and sigh with pure joy every single time. I can’t wait for readers to experience its magic.
Drew Davies said,
Wow, this is happening. I’m being announced! Ma, look – they’re announcing me! Where was I? Oh yes, I’m absolutely over the moon to be joining Bookouture, I really am. The team’s drive and talent are unmistakeable. And Christina is my dream editor, working with her is such a pleasure – I’m so excited about launching my first two books with her and the team. Both novels will be romantic comedy – and yes, I promise they’re much funnier than the opening to this paragraph.
