John Jarrold’s Corner: New Book Deal for Jasper Kent!

06 Jun

This is old news already (my dad is visiting from Australia so blogging took a back seat for a bit), but I’m re-posting the news here because it’s really awesome news and I’m incredibly chuffed for Jasper! 🙂

    PRESS RELEASE – NEW DEAL FOR BRITISH NOVELIST

Simon Taylor of Transworld Publishers in London has concluded a World Rights deal with John Jarrold, for a third historical vampire novel by UK author Jasper Kent. This follows on the successful publication of Kent’s debut, TWELVE, set in Russia during the Napoleonic Wars, earlier this year.

The third book takes up the story at the time of the Crimean War, after the second novel in the sequence – THIRTEEN YEARS LATER, which is coming from Bantam Press early in 2010. This third volume will see publication in 2011.

“Jasper’s debut has already been a remarkable success, with four reprints of the trade paperback within a few months of publication and over thirteen thousand copies now in print,” said John Jarrold. “Simon and his colleagues at Transworld have done a wonderful job, and word of mouth has obviously been very strong. It’s great to have this deal in place for an author who is already going places.”

To check out more info about Jasper, check out his website here and his blog here, and give John a visit too at this link. 🙂

Congrats to Jasper and to John, to the publishers and to readers! 🙂 Awesome news! 🙂
