Puffin acquires three Bodyguard titles

Puffin has acquired three more titles in Chris Bradford’s Bodyguard series, about a teenage bodyguard hired to protect the daughter of the US president.
 
Editorial director Amy Alward acquired the world English language rights to books four, five and six from Charlie Viney at The Viney Agency.
 
“Chris Bradford is one of the hardest-working and most dedicated authors in the business and we are delighted to continue publishing the Bodyguard series, which is kicking ass and taking names even in this difficult market,” said Alward. “We were thrilled to make Chris a bestseller… and we know his fans are desperate for future volumes of this brilliant series.”
 
The first title in the series, Bodyguard: Hostage was published in 2013 and the second, Bodyguard: Ransom, came out in May this year. Puffin will release the third book in the series, Bodyguard: Ambush, in May 2015.
