RHCB is delighted to announce that Annie Eaton, Fiction Publisher at RHCB, has acquired a standalone novel from debut author Lindsey Barraclough; LONG LANKIN. The deal which is for World rights and includes translation, film and TV, was done direct by the author.
LONG LANKIN is a haunting story for young adults about two sisters sent to live with their eccentric aunt in 1950s rural East Anglia. The older child discovers that the village is hiding dreadful secrets, and that a centuries old mystery involving witchcraft, child snatching and murder threatens her younger sister's life when a terrifying presence is awakened in the churchyard.
LONG LANKIN will be published in hardback in spring 2011.
