Piatkus has acquired two more novels from pop-cultural commentator and feminist fantasy author Maria Lewis.
Lewis is the author of the Who’s Afraid? books that are currently being turned into a TV series.
Planned for publication on Halloween 2018 (31st October), the first of her books under the new deal is The Witch Who Courted Death. It features Casper, a "fierce and unforgettable" heroine who can speak with and control the dead, an enemy she doesn't understand and a witch who does not want to be found.
Anna Boatman, publishing director of Piatkus Fiction, bought world rights from Ed Wilson of Johnson and Alcock.
