Bookouture has signed a trilogy from debut author Sandy Taylor.
Bookouture’s publishing director Claire Bord acquired world English language rights to three novels by Taylor through the Kate Hordern Literary Agency.
The first, titled The Girls from See Saw Lane, is set in late 1950s Brighton and tells the story of childhood friends Dottie and Mary, who are ‘Woolies’ girls making their way in the world.
Bord said: “Sandy has written a distinctive, charming and emotional story of friendship, love and terrible tragedy. The nostalgia market continues to flourish, particularly in e-book and I know Sandy’s novels will have huge appeal.”
Bookouture will publish The Girls from See Saw Lane in December 2015, with the second novel in the series following in late spring 2016 and the third in autumn 2016.
