Hera sign two women’s fiction novels from debut author, Liz Hurley
Hera are delighted to announce they have acquired two feelgood, heartwarming novels from women’s fiction author, Liz Hurley. The Wiverton Sisters series will follow the lives of Ari, Paddy, Nicoletta, Aster, and Clem, orphaned at a young age, whose lives are changed forever when they discover that Ari has inherited a sprawling country estate in Norfolk, and the title of Countess Wiverton... The first book in the series will be published by Hera in early 2020, with the second book following later that year. World rights were agreed directly with the author.
Keshini Naidoo, Publishing Director at Hera, said of the deal:
‘Reading Liz’s book is an absolute tonic. I fell in love with Ari and all of the Wiverton sisters as soon as I met them – these are relatable, idiosyncratic, funny women with so much heart, wrapped in a story that will have you smiling from ear to ear! I’m absolutely thrilled to be publishing Liz’s book and just can’t wait for readers to get their hands on this charming, utterly uplifting novel in 2020.’
Liz Hurley commented:
‘I’m really looking forward to working with Hera. They are so full of energy and it’s great to be part of something new. I love the way they treat authors like partners and I’m looking forward to this being a great collaboration.’
