With almost 2 million copies sold since its launch just over a year and a half ago, Robert Bryndza’s Erika Foster series has been a runaway success in eBook and audio – and has been translated in over 27 languages.
Following Bookouture’s acquisition by Hachette UK, the Erika Foster series will now be released in paperback in partnership with Sphere in the UK.
The Girl in the Ice will be published by Sphere in paperback on November 30th along with an international trade paperback edition on 4th December. The next books in the Erika Foster series will be released in quick succession in both paperback and trade paperback in the UK, Australia and New Zealand throughout 2018, 2019 and beyond.
Bookouture Publisher Claire Bord commented,
Together with Little, Brown, we have an incredible opportunity to bring the Erika Foster series to a new audience and, establish Robert as a major global brand author in print. Bookouture will continue to focus on building upon Robert’s loyal and growing fan base of digital readers.
Catherine Burke, Sphere Publisher and Little, Brown Book Group Executive Director added,
The chance to work alongside our Hachette colleagues at Bookouture and launch Robert as a Sphere author for the physical part of his publishing is an absolute dream. Like millions of others, Robert’s writing grabbed me from the get-go – I love Erika Foster and I adore the addictive, propulsive way Robert writes.
Robert Bryndza said,
The past two years have been life-changing, and I feel very grateful to work with the brilliant team at Bookouture. I’m beyond excited that the Erika Foster series will now reach a whole new audience in print with the Little, Brown Book Group.
The fifth book in the series, Cold Blood was released in eBook, audio and paperback on 20th September and shot straight to the top of the UK Kindle charts on pre-orders alone.
