Canelo have acquired two sweeping and atmospheric novels by Rose Alexander
Commissioning editor Emily Bedford has acquired World English language rights to two new standalone novels by Rose Alexander from Megan Carroll at Watson, Little Ltd.
Along the Endless River takes the reader on a journey through the wilds of the Amazon rainforest as Katharine and her husband start their own rubber business. But tragedy soon strikes and Katharine must find new strength in order to survive alone in a man’s world. Rose’s second novel with Canelo is a dual timeline historical romance set across modern and Second World War Europe. Rose has two previously published novels, Garden of Stars and Under an Amber Sky.
Emily Bedford says: ‘Working with Rose is a pure joy and I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to publish her novels. Rose has a fantastic talent in completely transporting readers to the worlds of her novels and Along the Endless River is no different, guaranteed to take your breath away with romance, heartbreak and danger.’
Rose Alexander says: ‘I'm absolutely over the moon to be working with Canelo on my new books! The experience has already exceeded my expectations in terms of attention to detail and level of input from my editor Emily, and the cover design is simply breathtaking. I am so excited to see the book go out into the world and hope that readers get as much enjoyment from reading it as I did from writing it.’
Megan Carroll says: ‘I could not be more delighted that Rose has found a home at Canelo! She’s a hugely talented writer and is in brilliant hands with Emily and the team. I’m so looking forward to Rose’s next novel to be out in the world – her writing is filled with such emotion, and Along The Endless River is a beautiful story.’
Along the Endless River will be published in January 2021, in print and ebook, with a second standalone novel to follow in June 2021. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
