We are thrilled to share the exciting news that bestselling self-published Irish romantic comedy author Susanne O’Leary is joining the Bookouture family.
Commissioning Editor Christina Demosthenous acquired World All Language and Audio rights in a two-book deal.
The first book, The Road Trip, tells the hilarious and heartwarming story of two women, Maddy and Leanne, who win the lottery. Deciding not to tell their families and friends about their big win, they plan a mad-cap road trip through Europe in a red convertible sports car. Starting off in Wales, they wind through the continent, ending up on the sun-drenched French Riviera. Along the way there are laughs, disasters, old flames and fresh starts. It will publish in June 2018.
The second book will publish in August 2018. The Boat Trip follows Maddy and Leanne’s adventure as they sail around the gorgeous Dalmatian islands.

I am so excited to be welcoming Susanne into the Bookouture fold. The Road Trip is everything you look for in a rom-com and more. It’s a riot of a read – laugh-out-loud funny, fabulously uplifting, featuring two fantastically relatable heroines that you wish were your best friends. It’s all about living life to the full and making the most of every moment – a fun, inspirational message that I think readers are going to love.

I couldn’t be more delighted to start the next part of my writing career with Bookouture! I already know how wonderful they are to work with and how well they treat their authors. I can’t wait to introduce my new heroines Maddy and Leanne to my readers and take them on The Road Trip through Europe. It’s going to be an exciting journey!
