Simon & Schuster has signed another novel by Orange Prize-shortlisted author Monique Roffey.
The company published Roffey’s debut, Sun Dog, in 2002. Her latest novel Archipelago was published in July this year. S&S also published her memoir With The Kisses of His Mouth.
Roffey was shortlisted for the 2012 Orange Prize for Fiction with The White Woman on the Green Bicycle.
Clare Hey, senior commissioning editor at S&S, bought UK and Commonwealth rights to Seven Levels of Sky from Isobel Dixon at Blake Friedmann. The novel will be released in 2015.
Hey said: “I am delighted to be continuing our journey with Monique. We have grown together over the past ten years, with wonderful successes along the way, and her new novel is set to be hugely exciting.”
Dixon added: “Monique’s powerful storytelling has put her at the forefront of contemporary Caribbean writing and I’m thrilled that what promises to be a landmark novel has again found its home with S&S, who have championed her writing over the last decade.”
