Author shifts to Scribner, Pocket Books
Bestselling author Barbara Delinsky has signed a three-book deal with Scribner and Pocket Books, shifting houses from sister imprint Simon and Schuster.
Agreement, said to be in the seven-figure range, is for North American hardcover and paperback rights. Simon and Schuster Audio will also handle the audio and CD recordings.
Delinsky will continue to be edited by S&S editor-in-chief Michael Korda and senior editor Chuck Adams. Her first book will be “Flirting With Pete,” due out in June.
Delinsky’s titles have been published in 25 languages and have sold more than 30 million copies. Nonfiction title “Uplift,” about surviving breast cancer, was published by Pocket Books last year.
Amy Berkower of Writer’s House negotiated the deal for Delinsky.
