Orion has bought two gift humour books, including a cookbook inspired by "Game of Thrones".
Anna Valentine, publishing director, non-fiction, bought world rights directly from Rory Scarfe at Furniss Lawton for Game of Scones: All Men Must Dine by Jammy Lannister, and Motivational Quotes to Help You Be More Positive by Chris (Simpsons artist).
Game of Scones: All Men Must Dine is a spoof cookbook which includes recipes such as Tyrion’s Shortbread, Red (Velvet) Wedding Cake, and Jaime and Cersei’s Family Mess.
Motivational Quotes to Help You Be More Positive is the debut from Chris (Simpsons artist), an anonymous cartoonist whose blog ‘Simpsons Pictures that I Gone and Done’ has nearly 500k ‘likes’ on Facebook.
Valentine said: “I’m hugely excited about these two brilliant gift titles, which are destined to be a hit with humour-lovers everywhere. At Orion Non-Fiction we’re looking to grow our stable of gift humour titles following 2014’s success with Baking Bad, Where’s Boris? and Dogs Hanging Out of Windows, all of which helped to grow our market share in this area. Game of Scones and Motivational Quotes… are two titles that stand out from the crowd and are ultimately very, very funny.”
Game of Scones will be published by Orion in hardback and e-book on 5th November 2015, costing £9.99.
