We’re thrilled to announce that Storm has acquired two Second World War series by USA Today bestselling author Rachel Wesson. Editorial Director Vicky Blunden signed a deal for World rights, including film and TV, with Wesson. The Resistance Sisters series will be rebranded for release in ebook, audio and paperback in August 2023, while the first book in the Hearts at War series will be released in September, with a sequel published in October 2023.

Wesson comments,

“I’m thrilled to be joining the talented team at Storm Publishing and am really excited to continue working with my amazing editor, Vicky Blunden. Vicky combines a passion for storytelling with a sharp editorial eye and her help in bringing my stories to life is invaluable. I can’t wait to see what we achieve next together.”

Blunden says,

“Rachel’s books are impossible to put down, finely researched, emotional and utterly absorbing. She’s an absolute genius at creating characters readers care about who fight for what they believe in. No one explores the intrigue and drama of the resistance as thrillingly. I’m overjoyed we’re going to have the opportunity to expand her already huge fanbase and give even more readers the chance to fall in love with her writing.”
