Holly Martin‘s Hope Island series will be released in paperback in partnership with Sphere in the UK, from Summer 2018 to Spring 2019. She has also signed a deal for three new books with Bookouture, the first of which will be published this April.

She has published 10 books since signing with Bookouture in 2015, selling over a quarter of a million copies and establishing her as a seasonal favourite in both Christmas and Summer reading. The Hope Island series includes Summer at Buttercup Beach, Christmas at Mistletoe Cove and Spring at Blueberry Bay. The three new books will be set in Sandcastle Bay, starting with The Holiday Cottage by the Sea.

Associate Publisher Natasha Harding acquired World English Language rights for the new titles, stating:

I’m delighted to continue working with Holly Martin as her publishing continues to grow. Holly has such a wonderful fan base of readers – and I know they are going to love the Sandcastle Bay setting for her three new feel-good novels. We’re thrilled to be teaming up with the brilliant team at Sphere to publish her bestselling Hope Island novels into the paperback market. It’s going to be an exciting year!”

Holly has said:

‘I’m delighted to be working with the lovely people at Sphere and so excited to see the Hope Island series going into paperback. This year, I’m so happy to be continuing working with Bookouture on the release of my new romantic comedy series, set in the tiny seaside village of Sandcastle Bay. I hope people will fall in love with the quirky village characters and the charming village itself… I can’t wait for people to read them!’
