Cath Trechman, Senior Fiction Editor at Titan Publishing has commissioned an epic fantasy trilogy, GODS OF WAR, from UK novelist Richard Ford . The deal is for World English rights. The agent was John Jarrold and the first book will be published early in 2017.
In a world where magic has vanished, rival nations vie for power in a continent devastated by war. When a young woman demonstrates magical talent for the first time in decades there are those that will kill to obtain her power. But the girl finds that guardians can come from the most unlikely places.
Cath Trechman said: “We are thrilled to be publishing Richard’s outstanding new trilogy. He is a wonderful writer and Gods of War is gritty, character-driven epic fantasy at its best.”
Richard Ford said: “I am over the moon the Gods of War trilogy has found a home. The enthusiasm from Cath and her team made me realise Titan is the perfect fit for the series.”
John Jarrold said: “Richard and I had a long and detailed meeting with Cath and her Sales and Marketing colleagues in the Titan offices. Their enthusiasm and strategy was wonderful and I’m looking forward to seeing them spring into action!”
