Corvus, an imprint of Atlantic Books, has acquired world English rights to a new novel by C.S. Quinn, who was previously published by Amazon.
The Bastille Spy is the first book in a new series about a female spy and is set during the French revolution.
Corvus editorial director Sara O'Keeffe and editor Susannah Hamilton acquired the manuscript in a two-book deal from Piers Blofeld at Sheil Land and will publish in print and digital in 2019.
Blofeld said: “Amazon have done a brilliant job establishing Cath as an author in digital, selling hundreds of thousands of copies of her books and making Cath a regular at the top of their charts. I’m really thrilled that Sara and Susannah will be driving Cath into the next phase of her career and establishing her as a bestseller in print as well as digital.”
