‘Hot Deal for Myriad’ – Publishing News from The Bookseller, October 2012

22nd October 2012

Myriad has signed a third novel by Isabel Ashdown, the author of Glasshopper, the winner of the Mail on Sunday Novel competition, and Hurry Up and Wait.

Editor Vicky Blunden acquired UK and British Commonwealth rights (excluding Canada) in Summer of ’76 from Kate Shaw at The Viney Agency.

Blunden said: “we are delighted to continue to publish Isabel Ashdown with all the enthusiasm, dedication and care we always have”.

Shaw said: “I am thrilled Vicky, Candida and the team at Myriad are publishing Isabel’s brilliantly insightful and touching novel. I am old enough to remember the summer of 1976 and am hoping publication of this novel next summer will coincide with another heatwave!”

The title, described as a “moving tale of family meltdown during the heatwave of 1976” will be published in trade paperback in July 2013.
