From my agent, John Jarrold:
“Michael Homler at St Martin’s Press has acquired US rights in the horror novel THE RITUAL by Adam Nevill from Harriet Sanders, Rights Director at Pan Macmillan in London. Julie Crisp acquired World Rights in the book from agent John Jarrold.
This is the seventh foreign rights deal for Adam Nevill via Macmillan’s rights department, following on from Germany, China, France, Russia, Spain and Turkey.
THE RITUAL will be published by Macmillan in 2011, following on their success with Adam’s previous novel APARTMENT 16. SMP plan a 2012 publication.”
Really excited by this news of some US action. Currently, my first two books are available on export in the US, but it’s never the same as being published by the full resources of a US publisher.
