Commissioning Editor Kate Smith has acquired World All Language rights, including film, TV and audio, for three novels from the bestselling women’s fiction author Eliza J. Scott. The first books in the Welcome to Micklewick Bay series will launch in May 2024.
Based in Yorkshire, where the series is set, Eliza J Scott has written and self-published ten novels, including the Life on the Moors and Heart Shaped series, and has been an Amazon UK Kindle bestseller.
“I’m overjoyed to have signed with the innovative and dynamic team at Storm Publishing and about having the fabulous Kate Smith as my editor. Kate’s enthusiasm and excitement for my Welcome to Micklewick Bay series shone through in our chats. Her ideas are brilliant and I can’t wait to start working with her and the rest of the team at Storm. I’m also very much looking forward to my books reaching new readers thanks to Storm’s vast industry knowledge and forward-thinking approach.”
“‘Eliza has such a talent for creating wonderfully rich characters and communities in her novels. Not only are they beautifully written with gorgeous settings, but they manage to blend humour and light-hearted escapism with serious emotional themes, always handled with empathy and insight. As her reviews attest, her books can make you laugh on one page and cry on the next, and always leave you desperate for the next in the series. I’m so proud to work with Eliza as her editor at Storm and can’t wait to welcome readers to Micklewick Bay next spring.’
