Diane Chamberlain is moving from Pan Mac to Headline Review for her new novel.
Editorial director Sherise Hobbs bought UK & Commonwealth rights from Peggy Boulos Smith on behalf of Susan Ginsburg at Writers House. The Dark End of the Street will be published in spring 2021.
Chamberlain has sold 1.5m books in the UK, according to Headline. She has shifted 987,646 print books for £4.2m through the TCM, with The Midwife’s Confession (Mira) her biggest seller at 121,526 copies sold for the 2011 paperback.
Hobbs said: “Diane Chamberlain is a rare and exceptional storyteller beloved by readers around the world. Her rich, multi-layered novels, laced with secrets, are reading-group favourites and we are so proud to welcome her to Headline Review.”
Chamberlain added: “I’m thrilled to be joining Headline Review. It’s home to some of the world’s greatest storytellers and I’m excited to be among them. I’m looking forward to working with Sherise and the rest of the team on my new novel, and to reaching new readers in 2021 and beyond”
