Pan Mac in six-figure Dickinson deal

Pan Macmillan has signed a "significant" six-figure deal for three books from Miranda Dickinson.

Senior commissioning editor Caroline Hogg acquired world English right for the books from Hannah Ferguson at The Marsh Agency.

Dickinson has written six novels, all with Avon, an imprint of HarperCollins, with the most recent, I’ll Take New York, being released in December this year.

The author said she was “grateful to the lovely team at Avon for all they have done for me over the past six years and I’m immensely proud of what we achieved”, and that she was “ thrilled to be entering the next chapter of my writing career with Carolin and the Pan Macmillan team”.

Dickinson’s first book with Macmillan will be published in late 2015 and is “the story of an ordinary woman whose life is changed by a series of mysterious brown paper packages containing beautiful gifts”.

Hogg said: “If you’re a fan of women’s fiction, you’ll know what an inspiration Miranda is within the community.

“Her stories are all about following your heart and taking a chance, and that’s also the message she sends out to readers through her fantastic vlog, tweeting and Write Foxy project.”
