Mantle signs Bloody Everything

Mantle has acquired the first novel for adults from Joanna Nadin, the children’s author best known for her Rachel Riley series.

Sam Humphreys, associate publisher, acquired UK and Commonwealth rights to The Queen of Bloody Everything, plus a second book, from Judith Murray at Greene & Heaton.

The Queen... is about mothers and daughters and the idea “that family might be what you make it, but you can’t change where you come from”, Humphreys said.

Mantle will publish the novel in 2018.
