The latest update from CEO Jane Fraser.
Happy New Year, all – I hope you’ve enjoyed the festive season. After a relaxing couple of weeks the team at Fremantle Press is back to business and as busy as ever!
This new year has brought a few changes to the Fremantle Press team. Sadly this month we will be saying farewell to Bill Fleming, our accounts manager. He will be sorely missed. We will also be welcoming two fresh faces: Kate Norman, a recent public relations graduate, will join as the new marketing and communications assistant, and Pat Brady will be taking over from Bill as our new accounts manager.
After a year of waiting we were very excited this month to receive the German translation of Dianne Touchell’s debut novel, Creepy & Maud. The teen novel, which was published by Königskinder (an imprint for YA titles), is sure to connect with a German audience and will hopefully lead to other opportunities for translation.
Last but not least, we have recently sold English-language UK and Europe rights for Kate McCaffrey’s four novels Destroying Avalon, In Ecstasy, Beautiful Monster and Crashing Down to Cameron Books. Kate McCaffrey is a bestseller in Australia and her books have attracted a lot of international attention so it will be great to see how the books fare in the UK.
That’s all for now – take care and have a happy Australia Day!
