Robson Press signs advice columnist Mooney

Biteback imprint The Robson Press has signed a book from veteran advice columnist Bel Mooney.

Jeremy Robson, publisher at the Robson Press, acquired world rights to Bel Mooney's Lifelines: Words to See You Through.

The book will draw on Mooney's years of columns, which have revised and updated to create what the publisher calls an "inspirational" collection. Mooney has been an advice columnist in the Daily Mail for several years, offering help on topics from grief to martial breakdown.

Mooney said: "This book comes as a result of many requests from readers who have asked whether I intend to collect an anthology of my own columns and the quotations I choose carefully each week to provide uplifting thoughts on my page. I hope it will make a comforting book to dip into."

The book is set for publication in October 2015.
