US deal for Suzanne McLeod
As fan-girl and admirer of Suzanne, I have to share the fab news from John Jarrold's blog:
Susan Howe, Rights Director at Orion, has sold US rights in three urban fantasies by UK novelist Suzanne McLeod to Ginjer Buchanan of Berkley Ace in a good deal. The books will be published as mass-market paperback originals, with the first appearing late in 2009 or early in 2010.
World rights in the series, which opens with Suzanne’s debut THE SWEET SCENT OF BLOOD (published in hardback and trade paperback in the UK in September 2008), were acquired by Jo Fletcher at Gollancz from John Jarrold in 2007. The second book, THE COLD KISS OF DEATH, will be published by Gollancz in July 2009.
