Imminent foreign editions of Apartment 16, and the new novel title: The Ritual

By 27th October 2010Uncategorised
Here’s a press release from my agent, John Jarrold, which pretty much sums up what an exciting year it has been for Apartment 16:

“Sascha Mamczak at Heyne has acquired German rights in two horror novels by Adam Nevill from Jon Mitchell, Rights Manager at Pan Macmillan. Julie Crisp acquired World rights in the books from agent John Jarrold.
This is the sixth translation deal for Adam Nevill via Macmillan’s rights department, following on from China, France, Russia, Spain and Turkey.
APARTMENT 16 was published very successfully by Pan in May this year, and THE RITUAL will follow in 2011.  Heyne are planning to publish THE RITUAL first, following up with APARTMENT 16.
‘APARTMENT 16 has sold extremely well, reprinting three times and spending a good deal of time as’s bestselling horror title, and we’re both delighted with this deal,’ said John Jarrold.  ‘Congratulations to Jon Mitchell!’”

This author is very happy (and relieved)

    Congratulations Adam! I'm so pleased that Apartment 16 has achieved the recognition it deserves. Long may it continue, all the best.

    Congrats Adam! I am so glad Apartment 16 is so successful. It is my opinion, as a lowly reader an avid follower of the horror, supernatural and macabre genre, that so much written today cannot compare. Your style is exceptional and your storytelling rivals that of your competitors. Good luck. I am awaiting the next book with newfound delight. Jeanette

  • Thanks Jason, Jeanette. Appreciate the kind words. Here's hoping The Ritual casts a spell over a few readers too.
