ATRIA BOOKS SIGNS FOUR-BOOK DEAL WITH #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR ABBI GLINES
(NEW YORK) – November 22, 2013. Atria Books announced today a four-book world rights deal with #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines. The first three books in the runaway new adult bestselling Too Far series, FALLEN TOO FAR, NEVER TOO FAR and FOREVER TOO FAR, will be published as eBooks in January 2014 with trade paperback editions to follow. Atria will also release a never before published novel, RUSH TOO FAR in eBook and trade paperback simultaneously in May 2014. The book will re-tell the story of Fallen Too Far from hero Rush Finlay’s perspective.
Fallen Too Far, Never Too Far, and Forever Too Far, originally self-published by Abbi Glines, established her as one of the foremost authors of the new adult genre, selling over 400,000 eBooks each, with Fallen Too Far reaching the half a million mark. These books launched the Rosemary Beach series, which follow the romantic entanglements within a group of best friends in a small resort town on the Gulf Coast.
Judith Curr, President and Publisher of The Atria Publishing Group says, “We’re so thrilled to be the exclusive publishers of Glines’s Rosemary Beach series and to have the opportunity to work with her on building a long term career.”
The deal was negotiated by Atria editor Jhanteigh Kupihea with Jane Dystel of Dystel & Goderich Literary Management.
