HoZ buys new series from Carole and John Barrowman!

John Barrowman and Head of Zeus

We are pleased to announce that we have acquired a new trilogy from Carole and John Barrowman! 

Editorial Director Laura Palmer acquired UK & Commonwealth rights in HOLLOW EARTH UNBOUND, a new trilogy for ages 12+ by writer Carole and her actor brother John Barrowman in a six figure deal from Georgina Capel at Capel and Land. We also bought rights to the third book in the first HOLLOW EARTH trilogy, aimed at 9-12 year olds which will be published in July 2014 with the new trilogy starting in July 2015 accompanied by a nationwide PR and events tour. The series follows the adventures of twins Matt & Em Calder who can bring anything they draw to life. 

Laura Palmer said: 'Carole and John's stories are set in this fantastic world, where gifted children can travel between paintings and bring their own art to life. It's such a cool superpower. I read the first two books, and my inner kid clamoured for more. Happily, there are four more books to come - and HoZ is going to have a lot of fun publishing them.'

John and Carole said: 'We are so excited that Matt & Em and the beasts of Hollow Earth are joing Head of Zeus and that they're bringing us with them. We know HoZ has great things planned for all of us!'
