HarperCollins Expands Agreement with Jeffrey Archer

HarperCollins, which already owns Italian and world English rights to Jeffrey Archer’s William Warwick series, has taken over publication of the titles in several additional markets. Starting this fall, the series will now be published by HarperCollins France, HarperCollins Holland, HarperCollins Ibérica, and HarperCollins Japan.

The deal was coordinated by HarperCollins International CEO Chantal Restivo-Alessi, with James Archer and Alan Mitchell, from Mitchell Rights Management. The new deal is part of HC’s effort to publish bestselling authors on a worldwide basis. In a statement, Restivo-Alessi called the William Warwick series “a prime example of stories that can travel, appealing to audiences around the world.”

Publication dates vary by market, but the first Warwick title in the new deal will be published by HarperCollins Holland in October 2021. Over the course of his nearly 50-year career, Archer has published more than 37 titles and sold more than 275 million copies around the world.
