Transworld has scooped four more novels by author Jo Thomas in a "substantial" six-figure deal. Editorial director Francesca Best bought UK and Commonwealth rights from David Headley at DHH.
The first book in the new contract will be published in summer 2024, returning readers to the Provence setting of Thomas’ 2020 novel, Escape to the French Farmhouse (Transworld Digital/ Corgi), which reached the top spot in the Kindle bestseller chart.
She said: "I am delighted to be continuing my publishing journey with Francesca and the team at Transworld. I’m excited about a return to the French Farmhouse and the characters there that people have come to love. Thank you to the whole team for all your work and efforts."
Best added: "Jo’s novels celebrate all the good things: food, love, family and fun. What’s more, they transport to the reader to gorgeous locations, and I for one can’t wait to go back to Provence with Jo next year."
