A new two book deal for Eva Glyn

I'm delighted to share the news that One More Chapter has acquired two more Eva Glyn books set in Croatia, the first being The Dubrovnik Book Club, which will be published in ebook, paperback and audio in March.

Here are some excerpts from the press release:

HarperCollins UK’s One More Chapter has signed a new two-book deal with Eva Glyn, the author of The Olive Grove and The Island of Secrets. Publisher Charlotte Ledger acquired World All Language rights from Eva Glyn, with the first book, The Dubrovnik Book Club, scheduled to publish in March 2024.

An escapist and emotional novel with a cosy mystery element, The Dubrovnik Book Club is perfect for fans of Victoria Hislop and The Durrells. Newly arrived on the sun-drenched shores of Croatia, Claire Thomson’s life is about to change forever when she starts working at a local bookshop. With her cousin Vedran, employee Luna and Karmela, a professor, they form an unlikely book club. But when their first book club pick – an engrossing cosy crime – inspires them to embark upon an investigation that is close to the group’s heart, they quickly learn the value of keeping their new-found friends close as lives and stories begin to entwine…

Glyn said: ‘I am delighted to be setting two completely new books in Croatia, especially as it is the only European destination to be included in Lonely Planet's top ten countries to travel to in 2024. I can't wait to work with the team at One More Chapter to take more readers there.’ 

Ledger added: ‘It’s such a joy to continue publishing Eva’s heartwarming books set in beautiful Croatia. Every time she comes to me with an idea I immediately want to grab my passport and head to the airport! We are so excited to bring her books to new readers at home and around the world.’

About me...

Over the last couple of years I have become adept at writing with two hats on; under my own name Jane Cable it’s romance with a twist, and as Eva Glyn I create escapist relationship-driven fiction. My inspiration comes from the nuggets of history I discover both at home and abroad, and the beautiful places I find them.

Eva Glyn’s books are set in Croatia, a country I fell in love with in 2019. My friendship with tour guide Darko Barisic has proved invaluable to gain an insight into Croatian daily life that few foreign authors can dream of. My first book set in the country, The Olive Grove, was inspired by Darko’s experiences of the war in the 1990s. Both An Island of Secrets and The Collaborator's Daughter are dual timeline looking back to a little known period of World War 2 history. Eva is published by One More Chapter, a division of Harper Collins and has been contracted to write two books about unlikely friendships... and books! The first of which, The Dubrovnik Book Club, will be published in March 2024.

My Jane Cable novels are published by Sapere Books. The first two were haunting contemporary romances looking back to World War 2; Another You inspired by a tragic D-Day exercise at Studland Bay in Dorset, and Endless Skies by the brave Polish bomber crews who flew from a Lincolnshire airbase.

Although I am Welsh I live in Cornwall and my current Sapere Books series, Cornish Echoes, are dual timeline adventure romances set in the great houses of the Poldark era and today. I love visiting the county’s historical sites and rugged coastlines as well as travelling further afield.
