Bookouture has signed a three-book deal with self-published author Kathryn Croft.
Keshini Naidoo signed world English rights in a deal with The Madeleine Milburn Literary, TV and Film Agency.
The first book, a psychological thriller called Until You Die, will be published in August this year, with the second book following in February 2016 and the third in summer 2016.
Naidoo said: "‘I’m overjoyed that Kathryn will be joining the growing stable of crime writers at Bookouture. Her writing is sharp, deftly plotted and darkly compelling and her books are a superb addition to the psychological thriller scene. She has achieved considerable success with her self-published titles, reaching the top 10 in the Kindle charts with her last book, and we’re really excited by the prospect of taking her career to the next level with Until You Die."
