Orion has acquired two new novels by Liz Fenwick for a “good five-figure advance”.
Orion Fiction publishing director Kate Mills bought UK and Commonwealth rights to The Returning Tide and another, as-yet-untitled, novel from Carole Blake at Blake Friedmann.
Mills said: “Liz Fenwick’s novels capture all the mystery and romance of Cornwall and I’m delighted that we will publish The Returning Tide next summer, and a further novel after that. She is building a loyal, eager readership and we look forward to growing it further with what promises to be a very exciting novel.”
The Returning Tide will be published in 2016, with the untitled novel released in 2017.
Fenwick’s new novel, Under a Cornish Sky, will be published in June this year.
