Three debuts for Hot Key
19.10.12 | Katie Allen
Hot Key Books has acquired three debuts.
Natalie Whipple's Transparent follows an invisible girl born into a gangster family in a world where everyone has a superpower. The publisher bought UK and Commonwealth rights at auction through Ginger Clark (originally on behalf of Anna Webman) at Curtis Brown US, and Hot Key will publish simultaneously with HarperCollins US in May 2013.
The second title is the Great Galloon, signed in a worldwide IP licence deal for two books from debut author Tom Banks. Both titles were bought on exclusive by Sara O’Connor through Brubaker, Ford & Friends. The series for 8-10-year-olds is described as "Captain Pugwash meets Monty Python".
And Sarah Odedina bought world rights in Tall Tales from Pitch End by debut Nigel McDowell from Jodie Marsh at United Agents. The "wonderful classic fantasy adventure" will be published in 2013.
