European Rights Deals for Richard Ford

Joanna Kaliszewska and Anna Alexander of the rights department at Hodder Headline have recently sold rights in the STEELHAVEN  fantasy trilogy by UK novelist Richard Ford to Bragelonne in France, and in the first book in the series, Herald of the Storm, to Fanucci Editore in Italy and Art Line Studios in Bulgaria.

World rights in the trilogy were acquired pre-emptively by John Wordsworth of Headline from agent John Jarrold for a high five-figure sum in pounds sterling, and rights have already been sold in Spain.  Herald of the Storm was first published in the UK in April 2013, with paperback publication following in August 2013 and it has received superb reviews.  The sequel, The Shattered Crown, will be published early in 2014.
