Jane Johnson, Publishing Director at HarperVoyager, has acquired world rights for six new novels from Sunday Times bestselling author Raymond E. Feist.
This deal will start a stunning new epic fantasy series, THE WAR OF FIVE CROWNS, which will draw influences from medieval history and Arthurian legend. HarperVoyager will publish the first in that series, KING OF ASHES, in May 2014.
Raymond E. Feist said: “I’ve enjoyed a wonderful relationship with HarperCollins spanning the entirety of my career and couldn’t be more pleased to be continuing it. The HC team are friends and allies, and I deeply appreciate their dedication and hard work.”
Jane Johnson said: “I’ve been working with Ray for over 20 years now and he is one of my very favourite authors, and people, so I’m thrilled to have done a deal that means we will be working with one another for many years to come, bringing his magical adventures to an ever-wider audience across all formats and platforms.”
