Krystyna Kujawinska, Foreign Rights Director at Orion, has sold German rights in two urban fantasies by debut novelist Suzanne McLeod to Nicole Geismann of Goldmann for a significant advance after a hard-fought auction.
World rights in the series, which opens with THE SWEET SCENT OF BLOOD (to be published in the UK in September 2008), were acquired by Jo Fletcher at Gollancz from John Jarrold in 2007.
‘This is a truly magnificent deal for a debut novelist,’ said John Jarrold. ‘I couldn’t be happier for Suzanne, or for Gollancz and Goldmann. And many congratulations to Krystyna.’
