Y Books Sells International Rights

Y Books, the recently formed publisher run by Chenile Keogh and Robert Doran, have sold international publishing rights for their title Paperboy by Tony Macaulay to HarperCollins.

Harper Collins plan to release the new edition in November 2011 in the UK and Australia.

Chenile Keogh, Managing Director/Publisher at Y Books said, ‘We are thrilled that Paperboy will now be brought to an international audience. We knew that this was special book from the moment we read it. We are sure that Harper Collins will do a fantastic job and that Tony will become a household name both at home and abroad.’

The book is about Macaulay’s childhood in the 1970s at the top of the Shankill Road in Belfast, an experience that has shaped his life and inspired his writing.

The deal was brokered by Prizeman & Kinsella Literary Agency and comes on the back of the sale of the film rights to Titian Red Pictures.
