We are delighted to announce today that we have entered into a multi-book joint venture publishing partnership with the internationally bestselling thriller writer Joseph Finder. Under the agreement HoZ will publish two new stand-alone thrillers and seven backlist titles over the next two years. CEO Amanda Ridout brokered the deal with Clare Alexander of Aitken Alexander.
Amanda Ridout said 'Joe is a hugely accomplished and successful thriller writer who has great potential to grow his readership outside the US. We will be energetically building his brand in both E and P starting with the brilliant Suspicion.'
Joseph Finder said 'Im very excited to be partnering with Head of Zeus. Amanda Ridout is a force of nature - I love her publishing vision and I am delighted that she and Clare Alexander were able to come up with such an innovative publishing arrangement.'
We will publish the new stand alone novel Suspicion in E and P as part of a global publication in June, and follow with seven backlist titles published in E in September.
