Boldwood announces further author acquisitions and traditional print programme launch
Boldwood is delighted to announce their most recent author acquisitions – bringing the total number of authors on the list to 32. From bestselling women’s fiction writers Sarah Bennett and Alison Sherlock via the doyenne of cosy crime Frances Evesham and Australian domestic noir author Kirsty Ferguson to the exciting debut novelist Leonie Mack, the Boldwood list continues to showcase the very best in commercial fiction. All authors have been contracted on multi-book deals and will be published in every format simultaneously in all English-language territories.
As the second year of the company’s life dawns, Boldwood is also pleased to announce the start of their traditional print programme in March with the highstreet retailer The Works. This complements Boldwood’s already established print distribution to bricks and mortar retailers worldwide via Ingram wholesale. In addition Boldwood will be offering Large Print editions of every title on their list and will be working with their partner Ulverscroft to sell them into the global library sector alongside Boldwood physical audio product.
Amanda Ridout Founder and CEO comments: ‘There is no better way to celebrate Boldwood’s first birthday than to add more exciting authors to our list – including our first Australian writer. It has been an exhilarating and successful first year, putting our company infrastructure jigsaw together, and working with our brilliant authors, retailers and distributors to reach nearly two hundred thousand readers in every part of the globe in under six months. We are looking forward to taking our next steps into traditional print publishing in 2020 and to building our multi-format publishing programme with 65 new titles planned.’
Boldwood’s latest additions to their author list is attached with biographical and title detail.
