We are delighted to announce that Publishing Director Kathryn Taussig has signed a two-book deal with Judith Murdoch of Judith Murdoch Literary Agency from acclaimed historical author Kate Eastham. The first is centred around the friendship of two nurses working in the Mill Road Hospital in Liverpool, England during the 1941 May Blitz and will publish in late October 2020. It will be followed by a heartfelt historical novel about the Spanish Flu epidemic in February 2021.
‘I am absolutely thrilled to welcome Kate to Bookouture! She’s an incredibly accomplished writer and her novels are so moving with unique and genuine characters you really care about. I can’t wait to work with Kate and to bring her the wider international readership her writing so deserves.’
‘I am absolutely delighted to be writing my next two books with Bookouture. Their warm welcome and supportive approach have already made me feel very much at home.’
