| 12 Comments | No TrackBacks

HarperCollins announced today that they will be 'global publishers' of Louise Rennison?s next two Georgia Nicolson novels, which will publish simultaneously in UK and USA. A substantial 6-figure deal was brokered by Rennison's agent, Clare Alexander of Gillon Aitken Associates.

Book 5 in the best-selling Georgia Nicholson series, And That?s When It Fell Off In My Hand will be published in hardback on 1st June 2004, with the paperback following in May 2005, to coincide with the hardback of Book 6.

The series launched in UK with Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging in 1999, followed by On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God (2000), Knocked Out By My Nunga-Nungas (2001) and Dancing In My Nuddy Pants (2002). Sales in UK for the series already top 350,000, with US sales of nearly a million.

Gillie Russell, Publishing Director of Fiction says, ?Louise Rennison is the original and best writer of her genre, reflecting the humour and angst of teenage life. HarperCollins US have been her publisher from the beginning and it makes sense to publish her globally. It is a fantastically exciting opportunity for us to take Louise to even greater heights.?

Clare Alexander says , ?Louise Rennison?s Georgia novels are now bestsellers in over 30 languages and her success in America has been phenomenal. We believe that the team at HarperCollins will be able to build on Louise?s terrific fan base in the UK and to take her to the next level internationally as well?

The UK launch will be supported by a huge publicity, marketing and sales campaign to build on the international success of the series and to further raise Louise?s profile.
