Hay House gets a slush pile bestseller

Hay House is to republish a book which has gone from the slush pile to the New York Times bestseller list. Rights have been sold in 20 territories.

E-Squared by Pam Grout is a self-help book which asks readers to follow nine experiments which seek to prove that our thoughts create reality. It was originally submitted to Hay House in the US where it sat on the slush pile before being picked up by editor Alex Freemon. E-Squared was first published in January 2013, and after becoming a word-of-mouth hit has now been in the New York Times bestseller list for four consecutive weeks, seven months after publication.

Grout is a writer and screenwriter who lives in the USA.

The title was made available as an e-book and as a paperback via print on demand in the UK, but will now be republished on 19th September as a paperback priced at £10.99. It will be backed by a large marketing campaign.

So far, rights to the book have been sold in 20 territories.
