Edinburgh-based publisher Barrington Stoke has acquired a new novel by Steve Cole, the author of some of the Young Bond series (Red Fox).
Editor Emma Baker acquired the world rights to Mindwriter, a years 8-12 fiction title about two people who can read minds, from Philippa Milnes-Smith at LAW Limited.
The book will be illustrated by Nelson Evergreen and published in July.
Mairi Kidd, m.d. of Barrington Stoke, said: “We're delighted to have Steve join the Barrington Stoke list with this tremendously exciting and unsettling novel. As the author of Young Bond we know Steve can't be beaten on breathtaking plots, but Mindwriter takes it up a notch with some deeply creepy supernatural thrills.”
