Aussie authors to Legend Press

Legend Press has acquired the work of two new Australian authors. 

Commissioning editor Lauren Parsons bought UK & Commonwealth rights (excluding Australia) to “a stunning debut about friendship, love and loss” titled Skylarking by Kate Mildenhall from Sophy Williams, and world rights to two books from the Heloise Chancey Mystery series by M.J. Tjia directly from the author. The first, She Be Damned, will be published Summer 2017, with the follow-up in 2018.

Parsons said: “We are delighted to acquire these two fantastic historical fiction authors, expanding our list into the genre. Australia is a key market for growth, and we are excited about the wealth of talent Australian agents and publishers have to offer.
