Blink inks deal with James Bulger’s mother

Blink Publishing has signed a memoir by Denise Fergus, mother of murdered toddler James Bulger, at auction.

Blink’s Natalie Jerome signed world rights from LBA Books’ Amanda Preston and Kym Rowlingson of Krystal Management. Jerome said an offer was made within 20 minutes of receipt of I Let Him Go (written with Carly Cook), a “heartbreaking account” of Bulger’s abduction and “the nightmare that followed”.

The title will be issued in hardback in January 2018.
