Head of Zeus has bought world rights to three new novels by Conservative Mid Bedforshire MP Nadine Dorries in a "major" six-figure deal.
Head of Zeus c.e.o. Amanda Ridout and senior editor Rosie de Courcy acquired the rights from Piers Blofeld at Sheil Land Associates.
The first book will continue Dorries' Angels series which follows the lives of the nurses of Lovely Lane. The other two books will begin a new series which is a "rags to riches" tale set in the Liverpool and Ireland of the 1950s.
Blofeld said: “Nadine’s rare gift for connecting with readers grows ever stronger and Amanda, Rosie and the rest of the team at Head of Zeus are doing a brilliant job of building her into the iconic, major brand author she deserves to be.”
Ridout added: “In just three years Nadine has become an extraordinary success and the power of her storytelling is resonating with readers everywhere. We look forward to working with her on this new series and to building her fanbase even further.”
The Four Streets, Nadine Dorries’ first novel was published in April 2014. Since then her novels have sold over 1.25 million copies in print and e-book, the publisher has said. Her latest novel The Mothers of Lovely Lane publishes on Thursday (15th June).
