Random House Series Acquisition

| No Comments

Random House Children's Books have announced today their acquisition of a major new action-adventure series launching in July 2009. "Think Alex Rider meets Houdini and you have got the flavour of SHADOW ISLAND by Paul Adam," they tell us.

Clare Argar, editor at RHCB, brokered a pre-emptive three book deal with world rights for a significant sum from Simon Trewin at United Agents. SHADOW ISLAND is the first book in the series.

Paul Adam started his writing career as a journalist. He has written ten critically-acclaimed thrillers for an adult audience.

Paul Adam was born in Sheffield and studied law at Nottingham University. After travelling the world chasing news stories, Paul has settled in Sheffield where he lives with his family. He is starting work on the second Max Cassidy book this Autumn.

RHCB are planning to launch this series with a major marketing and publicity campaign focussing on digital strategies to reach children, parents, booksellers and librarians.
