Hera Books signs two with Scottish crime fiction novelist Alex Kane

November 27, 2018

We’re delighted to be welcoming crime fiction author Alex Kane to Hera! World rights for two books were agreed directly with the author by Keshini Naidoo, Publishing Director at Hera. The first book in the deal, No Looking Back - a darkly gripping thriller about a woman escaping her abusive husband and searching for the truth about her parents’ death – will be published by Hera in March 2019.

Keshini Naidoo commented of the deal: ‘As soon as Alex sent in her submission, we knew we had something special on our hands, and we couldn’t wait to bring her to Hera! No Looking Back has all the elements that we love to read in thrillers – a strong, resilient, relatable main protagonist who finds herself fighting their way out of painful circumstances, with plenty of secrets being revealed along the way and a shocking, twisty ending. We’re thrilled to be publishing Alex Kane on the Hera list and can’t wait to launch this book in early 2019.’

Alex Kane said of the signing: ‘I am delighted to be published by Hera Books. To work with Keshini and Lindsey is such a fantastic opportunity. The experience and knowledge that these women have is outstanding, along with their own successes and achievements. It is so exciting to know that my books are in their hands. I am thrilled to be working with them.’
