Associate Publisher Natasha Harding has acquired World All Language rights including audio, film and TV for two brand new psychological thrillers by Kindle Top Five and USA Today bestseller author Shalini Boland. Bookouture have also agreed a deal for two of Boland’s previously self-published bestsellers The Best Friend and The Girl From the Sea.
Shalini Boland has been described by reviewers as ‘Queen of the double twist’ and I completely agree! Her psychological thrillers are totally gripping, with incredible characters and unputdownable plots that always have a killer ending. We’re so proud to publish Shalini Boland’s incredible novels and there’s plenty more exciting reads in store for 2019 and 2020.
I’m beyond excited to have this opportunity to write and release more books with the talented team at Bookouture. Natasha is quite simply my dream publisher, and I feel honoured to continue working with her to bring more thrillers to loyal fans and new readers!
Shalini Boland’s latest novel, The Perfect Family, is now available to pre-order here. This will be followed by The Best Friend in February 2019 with four books more books scheduled for release between summer 2019 and autumn 2020.
And in more great news, Associate Publisher Kathryn Taussig has acquired World rights for two new novels in the Tara Thorpe series from Clare Chase, to publish in 2019. Set in Cambridge, Chase’s novels follow DC Tara Thorpe as she teams up with her boss Garstin Blake to solve a slew of local mysteries. Murder, mystery and maybe even romance is on the cards!
Clare Chase said,
I’m thrilled to sign this new contact with Bookouture. The entire team has been a joy to deal with and I can’t wait to work with my editor, Kathryn Taussig, on the next books in the Tara Thorpe series.
Kathryn Taussig said,
Clare’s writing is so very atmospheric and she’s done a brilliant job of developing her main characters over the course of the series. Every new book brings fresh surprises, readers will be thrilled and astounded by how the drama plays out in these next few books, both inside the police station and on the trail of some very twisty and suspenseful mysteries.
