DYNAMIC PUBLISHING ACROSS FORMATS: In 2018 we published mass market conversions of the The Ranger (first in series) and The Fallen (most recent in series) to take advantage of opportunities in this format, which we did so successfully with Nick Petrie.
A NEW LOOK FOR ACE: Wehave given Ace a new look in mass market, which we are not carrying over to his hardcovers.
A SERIES TO WATCH: Each Quinn Colson novel has done better than the one before it. In the last year, combined print and ebook sales jumped over twenty percent.
A BEST-SELLING AUTHOR: Ace Atkins’ continuation of Robert B. Parker’s Spenser books have all been New York Times bestsellers, and he’s earned widespread acclaim for the Quinn Colson books from such fellow bestselling authors as Lee Child, Michael Connelly, John Sandford, Megan Abbott, and C. J. Box.
A NEW HERO FOR THE DEEP SOUTH: South Louisiana has James Lee Burke, Minnesota has Sandford, Los Angeles has Crais and Connelly, Florida has Hiaasen and Randy Wayne White—now rural Mississippi has a magnetic young hero in Quinn Colson.
