Jasper Kent sells one more book in his superb historical fantasy series


Since FBC loved "Twelve" both Robert (who reviewed it HERE) and Liviu (who bought it on publication via BookDepository and plans to review all further installments as long as he co-edits the site), we thought this news from super-sff literary agent John Jarrold is excellent and we wanted to share it:

PRESS RELEASE – NEW DEAL FOR BRITISH NOVELIST

Simon Taylor of Transworld Publishers in London has concluded a World Rights deal with John Jarrold, for a third historical vampire novel by UK author Jasper Kent. This follows on the successful publication of Kent's debut, TWELVE, set in Russia during the Napoleonic Wars, earlier this year.

The third book takes up the story at the time of the Crimean War, after the second novel in the sequence – THIRTEEN YEARS LATER, which is coming from Bantam Press early in 2010. This third volume will see publication in 2011.

"Jasper's debut has already been a remarkable success, with four reprints of the trade paperback within a few months of publication and over thirteen thousand copies now in print," said John Jarrold. "Simon and his colleagues at Transworld have done a wonderful job, and word of mouth has obviously been very strong. It's great to have this deal in place for an author who is already going places."

Contact John Jarrold or Simon Taylor for further details.

FBC congratulates Mr. Kent and we are really looking forward to the further adventures of
