Arrow snaps up six Sweet Valley e-book novellas
27.07.12 | Charlotte Williams
Arrow has acquired six novellas that follow on from Francine Pascal's adult novel, Sweet Valley Confidential, and will be publishing them as e-book originals.
Editor Gillian Holmes bought UK Commonwealth, excluding ANZ, rights from Angharad Kowal at Writers House, with Cornerstone Digital to publish all six novellas as e-books on 12th August 2012.
Holmes said the novellas open three years after Sweet Valley Confidential ended, and said: "In The Sweet Life, Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield are now 30, and there are some pretty huge surprises in store both for them and the millions of Sweet Valley fans. Each 'episode' ends on a cliffhanger so it's impossible to stop reading them. Direct to digital e-books are the perfect format for Sweet Valley fans, and it's a new and exciting venture for us."
