Book News: Headline Sign Sheila O’Flanagan
A flick through some blogs took me to the Chick Lit Reviews site where I discovered this exciting piece of news:
Headline has signed a three-book deal with Sheila O’Flanagan, continuing a partnership that extends over 15 novels and two short story collections.
Headline’s director of publishing Marion Donaldson conducted the deal for British Commonwealth rights with Carole Blake of Blake Friedmann.
Headline is already due to publish three O’Flanagan titles this year—the paperback edition of The Perfect Man, a new hardback Stand By Me and a collection of Christmas-themed short stories called A Season to Remember.
The new titles will be published in 2012–14. Donaldson said: “I couldn’t be more delighted. Sheila is a wonderful writer, writing warm, wise and unputdownable novels about families, relationships, friendship and love, and charming readers and retailers alike both through her books and in person.
“We are very proud to be her publisher, and look forward to many more successful years of partnership.”

I like O’Flanagan and am pleased about this. How about you?
