The debut from Gareth Brown, The Book of Doors, has been sold in the Arabic language to the Arab Culture Centre.
The Book of Doors will publish in February 2024 from Penguin Transworld and also in the last week, picked up a fantastic endorsement from The Leviathan author, Rosie Andrews:
"A real page-turner - incredibly ambitious and inventive, The Book of Doors is a great read."
The next Naija-set thriller starring psychologist Philip Taiwo, Gaslight by Femi Kayode (Bloomsbury Raven, November '23), was spotlighted in The Bookseller last week, as one of their crime & thriller picks:
"I loved Kayode's first Philip Taiwo novel, Lightseekers, and it was picked as a Book of the Month by The Times, Sunday Times, Independent, Guardian, Observer, Financial Times and Irish Times. In this second, the investigative psychologist is asked to clear the name of a bishop accused of murdering his wife - the "First Lady" of a Nigerian mega-church. Taiwo is a really interesting and original protagonist."
Last week, author Louise Beech announced that she would be performing a one-woman show in 2024.
Technological Amazingness (and other titles that didn't make the cover) will go up for a very exclusive one-show performance, on Saturday 10th February at the East Riding Theatre, and will see Louise talk about her writing career thus far, what went on behind the scenes and with a focus on her four most popular books, End of Story, Eighteen Seconds, This Is How We Are Human and How To Be Brave.
