The Orion Publishing Group is delighted to announce the acquisition of two new novels by author Liz Fenwick. Kate Mills, Publishing Director at Orion Fiction bought UK and Commonwealth rights from Carole Blake for a good five-figure advance. THE RETURNING TIDE plus one untitled novel, will be published in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

Kate said: ‘Liz Fenwick’s novels capture all the mystery and romance of Cornwall and I’m delighted that we will publish THE RETURNING TIDE next summer, and a further novel after that. She is building a loyal, eager readership and we look forward to growing it further with what promises to be a very exciting novel.’

Liz Fenwick said: ‘The team at Orion have been fantastic to work with and I'm thrilled this will continue for the next two books.’

Carole Blake said: ‘Liz and Orion have been a terrific team for the 3 books published so far. She’s recently delivered her strongest novel to date, UNDER A CORNISH SKY, so this is a great time to be renewing our contract with Orion, and the agency is looking forward to adding to the 11 languages she is sold to so far.’

Growing up in Boston, Liz discovered early on that her best friends could be books. While waiting on a place on a Masters degree, she moved to London to see if life looked different from the other side of the Atlantic. It did and she soon fell in love with an Englishman. Now happily married with three children, she spends as much time as possible at her home in Cornwall.

Liz’s new novel, UNDER A CORNISH SKY is published in June this year.
