We’re delighted to share that commissioning editor Kate Smith has acquired World All Language rights in e-book, paperback and audio, including film and TV, for two new historical novels by the author Lelita Baldock.

Her new novels, both set during the Second World War, will be released in March and August 2025.

Baldock says,

“Working with Storm and editor Kate Smith has been an incredible experience and I am thrilled to sign with them for two more historical novels. Kate’s vision and understanding of the emotion within my manuscripts supports my words to truly shine. I think we make a great team! I am so proud of what we have achieved with The Baker’s Secret and I am excited to share more stories with readers soon.”

Smith says,

“I’m over the moon to be working with Lelita on two more historical novels. Her writing is beautiful, with such rich historical detail and characters who draw you in and stay with you for a very long time. It’s been wonderful to see the response to The Baker’s Secret and readers are in for such a treat with her upcoming publications.”

For more information about Lelita Baldock, you can find her on Facebook, X, Instagram and on her website.
