Blackstaff Acquires Tony Macaulay’s Breadboy!

Blackstaff Press has announced the acquisition of a new title by Tony Macaulay, the bestselling author of Paperboy!

Senior Editor Helen Wright bought world rights in Breadboy which will be published in paperback in Spring 2013.

Helen said: ‘We’re all great fans of Paperboy and so we’re thrilled to be publishing its sequel Breadboy – a trip back to the Shankill with Tony on a new career path, with all the warmth, nostalgia and humour that made Paperboy such a hit.’

Macaulay’s first book was published initially by Merlin in Ireland before being republished here by Y Books and then by HarperCollins in the rest of the world. Red Titan Films acquired movie rights for the book in 2010.

The deal was negotiated by Paul Feldstein at the Feldstein Agency on behalf of Macaulay.
