Choc Lit has acquired world rights for a “slow burning” contemporary romance novel by Linn B Halton, titled Sweet Occasions.
The book follows cupcake shop owner, Katie, as she deals with the issues of a failing relationship and running a small business. The love story at the heart of the narrative unfolds over the space of two years.
Halton has previously had several books published with Harper Impulse and she won the 2013 Innovation Award for Romantic Fiction from the Festival of Romance. She is also the managing editor of the digital lifestyle magazine, Love a Happy Ending.
She said: "Joining Choc Lit was top of my wish list and although I'm the newest member, in some ways it feels as comfortable as going 'home'. I feel blessed to be in the company of some very talented and awesome authors, and a part of such a friendly, professional and supportive team. When I finally see Sweet Occasions sporting that Choc Lit badge I'll be doing a happy jig all over again."
Choc Lit will publish Sweet Occasions later this year in e-book at £2.99, with the paperback to come in early 2016 at an r.r.p of £7.99.
