Quinn moves from Amazon, where she was a bestseller in digital

Sara O'Keeffe and Susannah Hamilton at Corvus (Atlantic) have signed at auction world rights for The Bastille Spy and a second, untitled novel by CS Quinn. Atlantic struck the deal through Piers Blofeld at Sheil Land, and will publish The Bastille Spy in print and digital in autumn 2019. Quinn was previously published by Amazon, selling hundreds of thousands of copies in digital.

The Bastille Spy opens a new series, starring a female spy operating during the French Revolution. Quinn said: "I am beyond thrilled to be joining such a dedicated and hard-working publisher. There was really never any contest after meeting the team at Corvus. They demonstrated such incredible warmth and expertise, I knew I'd be in great hands."

Blofeld said: "Amazon have done a brilliant job establishing Cath as an author in digital, selling hundreds of thousands of copies of her books and making Cath a regular at the top of their charts. I'm really thrilled that Sara and Susannah will be driving Cath into the next phase of her career and establishing her as a bestseller in print as well as digital."
