HarperFiction has signed a self-published novel in a six-figure deal.
Editorial director Natasha Bardon and executive publisher Kate Elton pre-empted UK and Commonwealth rights, excluding Canada, in Jason Gurley's Eleanor, in a deal with Caspian Dennis at Abner Stein on behalf of Seth Fishman at the Gernert Company. The book, originally self-published, follows Eleanor in the wake of the death of her twin sister.
Bardon said: “I’m so excited to publish this incredible book. Jason has packed such feeling and familiarity into each page, every moment carries real emotional punch. It’s a beautiful novel.”
