It’s very exciting over here at Bookouture today! We are overjoyed to announce that we have signed another eight-book contract with global bestselling author, Angela Marsons.
Since Silent Scream was published in late 2014, Angela has gone on to sell over one and a half million copies worldwide, with each of her four books hitting the top 10.
Keshini Naidoo, Associate Publisher, said of the deal:
Angela Marsons is the kind of writer an editor dreams of – her Kim Stone series consistently goes from strength to strength and I’m always excited to see what she has dreamed up for her next thrilling novel. Angela is a supremely talented writer, bursting with ideas, and I am absolutely delighted that this new deal will allow us to build upon Angela’s already huge global fanbase and really take her to the next level.
Angela Marsons said:
I am beyond delighted to be signing with Bookouture for another eight books featuring Kim Stone. I’m not sure Oliver Rhodes believed me when I warned him that he would have to scrape me from the Bookouture window. The efforts of both Bookouture and Lorella Belli Literary Agency have secured translations in 17 territories and a print deal for the Kim Stone series.
The passion, dedication and drive of the people within this amazing team is truly inspirational. From the moment I originally signed with Bookouture I felt as though I was being welcomed into a family where integrity is key and everyone matters. I now hold that view more than ever and I am very excited to be continuing this journey with such a dynamic and knowledgeable team.
Since publishing Angela Marsons’ first book in 2014, Bookouture have sold over one and a half million copies worldwide globally of the DI Kim Stone series, with translations rights sold in 17 countries including Norway, Germany, Poland, Italy, Japan, Estonia, Portugal and Vietnam. In a first for Bookouture, a print deal has been agreed with Bonnier Publishing – paperback copies of Silent Scream will be released in July 2016. Her next eagerly anticipated Kim Stone novel will be released in autumn 2016.
