It’s Official! GLIMPSE Book Deal Announcement

Posted by on May 30, 2013 | 4 comments

I’m very excited to share The Bookseller’s official announcement of my book sale:

Constable & Robinson YA imprint Much-in-Little has acquired a novel by debut author Kendra Leighton, inspired by Alfred Noyes’ poem “The Highwayman”.

Sarah Castleton bought UK rights in Glimpse by Leighton from Jane Finigan at Lutyens & Rubinstein.

Much-in-Little will publish in autumn 2014. The story follows the increasingly eerie life of Liz who, after a car-crash erases all memory of the first ten years of her life, moves with her father to The Highwayman Inn.

Castleton said: “Kendra’s super-fresh interpretation of ‘The Highwayman’ is a pull-the-covers-tighter treat. A ghost story, a love story, and a story of overcoming trauma, Glimpse makes you shiver, even as it warms your heart.”

muchinlittle_logoHaving a book published at all is thrilling, but I’m especially delighted that my fabulous agent found a home for Glimpse with Much-in-Little. Much-in-Little is a new imprint of Constable & Robinson, and has already published such great titles as Catherynne M. Valente’s The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making and Lily Herne’s Deadlands.

I couldn’t wish for a better home for Glimpse.

There’s still lots of editing and work to be done before 2014, but for now—I’m off to celebrate! In the meantime, you can find out more about Glimpse/add it to Goodreads here.
