Rights Success For O'Brien Author
Irish author PR Prendergast, a school teacher and father of three from Dublin, has sold foreign rights to publishers in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Serbia and Macedonia (Albanian language rights). According to his publisher in Ireland, The O’Brien Press, ‘many other countries [are] extremely interested.’
Prendergast’s title, Dancing in the Dark, has also been nominated for the 21st Bisto Children’s Book of the year Award this year alongside Oliver Jeffers, Sheena Wilkinson, Deirdre Sullivan and others.
The success for Prendergast marks yet another rights win for O’Brien Press who have been at the forefront of rights sales by Irish publishers in the last few years securing record rights sales for their author Celine Kiernan and her Moorehawk Trilogy.
