Pantera Press signs first international rights deal

Pantera Press has signed its first international rights deal with the sale of North American rights to the first seven books in Sulari Gentill’s ‘Rowland Sinclair Mysteries’ series and J M Donellan’s Killing Adonis to Poisoned Pen Press.

The Arizona-based independent publisher specialising in mystery titles will begin publishing books in Gentill’s series next year. Pantera Press rights manager Katy McEwen told Books+Publishing the deal was made at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

McEwen said Gentill’s series, which offers a ‘tantalising insight into the people and politics that shaped 1930s Australia and the world’, will ‘gather a whole new legion of fans on the other side of the Atlantic’. The latest book in the series Give the Devil His Due was published in 2015.

Pantera has also sold world audiobook rights to Wavesound for three of its titles: The Crossing and The Falls (both by B Michael Radburn) and The Trusted (John M Green). The Crossing and The Trusted will be published early in 2016, and The Falls will be released to coincide with publication of the print book in August.
