More Rights Deals For Maverick House

In a further flurry of rights activities, Maverick House has acquired a new title and sold film right in a second.

Film rights to The Devil In A Red Dress, by journalist and author Abigail Rieley, were acquired by LA and Galway based producer Michael Duke.

The company also acquired the rights to Raymond Alikpala’s Of God and Men, which the author originally self-published in Cambodia as God Loves Bakla. The book deals with his experiences as a closet homosexual in a catholic society. The title will be published in October 2011.

Yesterday Maverick announced the acquisition of Eating Smoke by Chris Thrall.
