Century has struck a six-figure deal with Little, Brown in the US for the North American rights to its two books from astronaut Tim Peake: Hello, is this planet Earth? and his forthcoming new book, Ask an Astronaut.
The deal was done with Reagan Arthur, senior vice president and publisher of Little, Brown.
Ask an Astronaut, which publishes with PRH in the UK on 19th October, will be Peake's "personal guide to life in space", based on the thousands of questions he has been asked since his return to Earth.
Peake is a European Space Agency astronaut. He finished a 186-day mission working on the International Space Station when he landed back on Earth on 18th June last year.
