Bestselling author Jeffrey Archer has moved houses. After publishing with Macmillan's St. Martin's Press imprint, Archer has struck a three-book agreement with HarperCollins.
The world rights agreement was negotiated by HC UK CEO Charlie Redmayne, managing director Kate Elton, and executive publisher Kimberley Young with James Archer and Alan Mitchell at Mitchell Rights Management. As part of the deal, Archer will pen a new title in his William Warwick series, Over My Dead Body, which is set to be released through all HC English-language markets in fall 2021.
Publication in the U.S. of all titles in the deal will be coordinated by HarperCollins 360, the U.S. division of the company’s global English-language publishing program, headed by affiliate publisher Jean Marie Kelly.
Archer, HC noted, has over 275 million copies of his more than 37 books in print around the globe. His work is available in 97 countries and 33 languages.
