Nancy Barone Signs With Bookouture

Posted at 1:34PM Monday 14 Jan 2013

Bookouture today announced the signing of author Nancy Barone on a three book contract.

The contract is for global rights to three women's fiction titles which will be published both digitally and in print-on-demand.

Oliver Rhodes, Founder of Bookouture said he was incredibly excited to be working with Barone:

"Nancy's writing combines laugh-out-loud hilarity with a real depth of emotion - something which definitely made her manuscript stand out from the pack."

Nancy has previously published a number of romances with Solstice Publishing, but this is her first women's fiction book. She commented on the move:

"I signed for Bookouture because they share my vision for my books and care about them as much as I do - an author's dream come true. They're amazing to work with."

Bookouture plan to publish Nancy's first title - The Husband Diet in May, with the second to follow before the end of the year.

Nancy is Canadian by birth, but has lived in Italy for most of her adult life - where she teaches English and is married to a Brit. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America.

Bookouture is the digital imprint founded by Oliver Rhodes - previously Marketing Controller at Harlequin UK and a Bookseller Rising Star for 2012.

Bookouture specialises in entertaining fiction for women and is dedicated to building building global author brands through smart, creative digital marketing.
