S&S nabs German star

Simon & Schuster has bought world rights (excluding Germany) in These Days of Ours, a new novel by Juliet Ashton, and will publish in June 2016.

Ashton, who was previously published by Sphere in the UK, is a superstar in Germany, where she has shifted more than 100,000 copies for Rowohlt.

Clare Hey, editorial director at S&S, said: “Juliet manages to speak right to the heart of what is important in life and has an ability to create characters you feel you know.”
