Global SF and Fantasy imprint Orbit has acquired a new trilogy by Sunday Times bestselling fantasy author Trudi Canavan. UK Editorial Director Anne Clarke acquired World rights from Arabella Stein, acting for Trudi Canavan’s primary agent Fran Bryson, in a major deal. The deal coincides with Trudi Canavan’s first major UK and European tour. The tour begins this week for publication of her latest novel The Rogue.
Millennium’s Rule is set in an entirely new magical world, with the first book in the trilogy due to be delivered in June 2013. It will be published by Orbit in 2014 in all good bookstores across the planet.
Trudi Canavan says: “I am delighted to continue working with Orbit who have been such a big part of the success of my books—and I am excited to be exploring this new, dynamic fantasy world which I can’t wait to share with my readers.”
Anne Clarke says: “I have long been a fan of Trudi’s wonderful books, and I was delighted and honoured to become her UK publisher when I joined Orbit at the start of this year. Trudi has a wonderful talent for creating emotionally compelling characters and weaving them into an exciting narrative set in a well drawn and wholly believable magical world. I and the rest of the Orbit team are thrilled at the prospect of publishing Trudi for many more years to come.”
Fran Bryson says “Trudi and Orbit are a terrific team. It’s great news that they will enter the stunning world of Millennium’s Rule together.”
