The book will be published in October 2022 by Canelo.
We are so thrilled for Victoria Selman, who last week saw the publication of her new novel, Truly, Darkly, Deeply in hardback, eBook and audiobook format (Quercus Books).
This is a fast-paced and gripping thriller that possesses a twist so shocking, we'd be surprised if you weren't still trying to pick your jaw up come Christmas!
Already Dead is the first in Tina's 'DI Sheridan Holler' series and has already picked up a fantastic quote from fellow author, Elly Griffiths:
"An excellent crime novel, full of humour and pathos as well as utterly realistic action. A stunning debut."
More news on this very exciting acquisition soon!
Also sold last week was Eve Seymour's backlist title, Don't Tell Anyone. Originally published in 2016 by Midnight Ink, the book has been bought for World English Language rights, by Joffe Books, in a deal negotiated by Broo Doherty.
The book will be published by HarperCollins imprint, One More Chapter, in April 2023 and is the compelling story inspired by the scandalous real life of silent movie icon, Alla Nazimova.
"Grimdark Magazine presents the darker, grittier side of fantasy and science fiction. Each quarterly issue features established and new authors to take you through their hard-bitten worlds alongside articles, reviews and interviews. Our stories are grim, our worlds are dark and our morally grey protagonists and anti-heroes light the way with bloody stories of war, betrayal and action."
