HarperFiction Closes New Deal With Rosie Thomas

Posted at 11:01AM Tuesday 11 Dec 2012

HarperFiction has closed a major new two book deal to continue their successful partnership with Rosie Thomas. The deal was done between Thomas's agent Jonathan Lloyd of Curtis Brown and Kate Elton, Publisher of HarperFiction.

The deal, for UK and Commonwealth rights, will take Thomas's publishing up to 2016 and comes after The Kashmir Shawl which was a number #2 Sunday Times bestseller and reached #1 in the Kindle chart, reinforcing her enduring appeal as a writer of rare quality.

The new books cover the period 1885-1944 and tell the story of a family of stage illusionists and a Victorian music hall with a truly magnificent and original cast of characters.

Rosie Thomas is the author of a number of celebrated novels, including the award-winning Iris and Ruby and in a writing career spanning 30 years and more than 20 bestselling novels, has been highly praised for her storytelling and creating characters that her readers really care about.

Kate Elton says:

'Rosie Thomas is an extraordinary writer. Over twenty wonderful novels she's proven time and time again that her intelligent writing, emotional complexity and unforgettable storytelling resonate incredibly powerfully with readers worldwide. She's one of the jewels of the HarperFiction list, and we're all incredibly proud to continue our publishing relationship.'

Jonathan Lloyd says:

'I am delighted to renew the successful partnership with HarperCollins and Rosie Thomas. She is an amazing and diverse talent. Having read 30,000 words of Book 1, I know that it is a very special novel that will delight and thrill readers all over the world.'

Rosie Thomas says:

'It's wonderful to have the continuing support and enthusiasm of Kate's great team at HarperFiction. They have published me with flair in the past, and I know that with these new books we'll be going from strength to strength.'
