Sharmaine Lovegrove snaps up Lucy Ayrton’s ONE MORE CHANCE as her first acquisition for Dialogue Books
Friday 29th September 2017
Sharmaine Lovegrove has announced Lucy Ayrton’s ONE MORE CHANCE as her first acquisition for new imprint Dialogue Books.
ONE MORE CHANCE tells the story of an inmate in a London prison and depicts “a fascinatingly authentic world of female friendships, gang etiquette, drug addiction, therapy groups and even the lively prison hair salon – in a way that places a mirror up to us all, and engrosses us in a plot full of jeopardy, suspense and adventure”. Its protagonist is Dani, a girl who went a bit wild in her teens and became gripped by drug addiction, for whom readers root for her rehabilitation and desire to prove herself to her daughter and be able to bring her out of care.
UK and Commonwealth rights, excluding Canada, were acquired from Laetitia Rutherford and it will be published on 28th June as a £12.99 trade paperback and e-book.
