Octopus gets red carpet ready

Octopus imprint Mitchell Beazley will publish the first book from “body sculpting expert” Louise Parker, which promises to get people “red carpet ready” in just six weeks.

Senior commissioning editor Eleanor Maxfield acquired world rights from Heather Holden-Brown of the hhb agency to The Louise Parker Method, which will be published in May 2016.

London-based Parker [pictured], once dubbed “the fat whisperer to the stars” by the Daily Mail for her work with celebrities, says her method is the “fastest, safest, most intelligent and long-lasting fat-loss programme”.

Maxfield said: “Louise has all the talent and credibility to be the next face of health. The whole of Octopus is fired up to work with such an inspirational author.”
