Today’s Publisher’s Weekly reports that, “In a major deal closed during the week of the Frankfurt Book Fair, Lauren E. Abramo at Dystel & Goderich sold the bestselling self-published romance by Samantha Young, On Dublin Street, to NAL for seven figures. Kerry Donovan acquired the title for the Penguin imprint in a two-book deal, which includes a currently untitled follow-up.
The novel, which Abramo said has sold more than 150,000 copies (n digital) in one month, has appeared not only on the Amazon bestseller lists but also on the lists for the Wall Street Journal and Apple. In the book, which is set in Edinburgh, a woman is awakened (sexually and otherwise) when she meets the intense brother of her new flat mate.
From everyone here at IndieReader, best of luck, Sam!
