Three 'sparkling' Jenny Colgan novels to Sphere

Sphere has signed three “sparkling, warm and hilarious” novels from Sunday Times bestselling author Jenny Colgan.

Maddie West, deputy publisher for Sphere fiction, acquired UK and Commonwealth rights from Jo Unwin at the Jo Unwin Literary Agency, in what has been described as a “major” new deal for the publisher.

West said: “Jenny’s happy, honest stories are a delight to read and a delight to publish, and with two Sunday Times bestsellers this year, I can’t wait for the next one!”

Colgan added: “I am so thrilled to continue working with the powerhouse that is Little, Brown. They go from strength to strength and I am incredibly glad they're taking me along for the ride.”

Sphere will publish the first book on the new contract in October 2016.
