FBC Flash News: Two-book US Rights Deal for Mark C. Newton


PRESS RELEASE –TWO-BOOK US RIGHTS DEAL FOR NEW BRITISH FANTASY WRITER

"Margaret Halton, Rights Director at Pan Macmillan, has sold US rights in two fantasy novels by UK novelist Mark Charan Newton to Chris Schluep for a good five-figure sum in US dollars.

World rights in the novels, which open with Mark’s mainstream debut NIGHTS OF VILLJAMUR (to be published in hardback in the UK in June 2009), were acquired by Peter Lavery at Tor UK from John Jarrold in 2008.

Chris Schluep said: ‘I am so excited to be publishing NIGHTS OF VILLJAMUR, which is an absolutely wonderful book, and I’m very much looking forward to launching the U.S. career of an important and talented new writer in the field. I’m convinced that Mark has a bright future ahead of him; he’s one of those writers that you come across only on occasion . . .’

‘Chris acted quickly and with great enthusiasm. Mark and I are delighted, and looking forward to working with him and his colleagues at Del Rey, who I know well,’ said John Jarrold.

Contact Margaret Halton or John Jarrold for further information:

Here at FBC we are "fan boys" at least me and Robert - I think Robert gets an official acknowledgment somewhere - so not particularly objective sometime, but after all I loved Nights and that made me a "fan" first and foremost

Next book will be one of the most (possibly top in fantasy) anticipated novels of mine whenever - hopefully it will be ready for mid 10 with an arc by late 09, early 10 - but as with all novels, it's hard to be sure until everything is done

Good news. I can't wait to read Nights of Villjamur.
