I've got a book deal!
Joshua Farrington of The Bookseller reports:
"In a separate deal, senior commissioning editor Sam Carter signed world English rights to Black Tudors, a debut history book from Dr Miranda Kaufmann. The deal was done with Charlie Viney at the Viney Agency.
The book is Carter's first acquisition for Oneworld. Carter said:
"Miranda has unearthed some extraordinary lost stories from a much-examined period of our history, and has woven a fascinating narrative around some remarkable characters who will confound our cosy assumptions about Tudor England. Miranda is an exciting new talent, and Black Tudors will be an adornment on Oneworld’s strong history list."
The book will be released in autumn 2016."
I still can't quite believe this is really happening, after working towards it for so long. Many many thanks to Sam Carter of Oneworld Publications for taking me on, and to Charlie Viney and Val Hudson of The Viney Agency for all their hard work in getting me to this stage.
Now all I have to do is write the book!
If you want to learn more about the Black Tudors before the book comes out, do have a look round my website or come to one of my talks.
