Michael Joseph is publishing Mary Berry's first "household how-to" in Autumn 2017. The deal for world rights was done between Louise Moore, managing director of Michael Joseph and Felicity Bryan at Felicity Bryan Associates.
Mary’s Household Tips and Tricks will be a comprehensive, illustrated guide sharing Berry's tips on home maintenance and care for homes large and small, urban or rural, to create spaces that are "at once beautiful and liveable" helping readers to achieve "home happiness".
It will comprise personal anecdotes from Berry about caring for her home, with specific coverage promising advice on how to set a formal table, organise a medicine cabinet and polish silver, plus "the perfect, no-fuss way to clean the loo".
The book will be released on 5th October.
Moore, m.d. of Michael Joseph, said: “'We are so happy to be working with Mary again at Michael Joseph. This is going to be a practical book on household care and the joys of taking time to do small and essential things in life beautifully and well.”
Berry added: “I am so excited about working on this new project with Louise and the team at Michael Joseph. This book will be filled with the wisdom I gleaned from my mother and other tips I have picked up throughout my life, which I am delighted to share with you all. I hope it will be informative as well as entertaining.”
Berry, the author of over 70 books, will support publication with targeted media and events.
