Hot Key buys 'electrifying' debut

Hot Key Books publisher Emily Thomas has bought two books by 22-year-old debut author Natasha Footman, including YA fantasy novel, The Elites, tipped as one of the hot books of Frankfurt in The Bookseller’s round-up.

Thomas acquired UK and Commonwealth rights through Nicola Barr at Greene & Heaton, and described The Elites as: "an electrifying read, with strong elements of 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and The Hunger Games, but still unique-original and beautifully told".

She added: “We are so thrilled to have this book and the talented Natasha Footman on the Hot Key list.”
