Five Mile sells UK, US and Canadian rights to Love Your Body

Five Mile has sold UK, US and Canadian rights to Jessica Sanders’ picture book Love Your Body (illus by Carol Rossetti) to the Quarto Group.

With the latest deal, made by Five Mile commercial director Tash Besliev, Love Your Body has now been sold into 25 territories.

Besliev said, ‘Publishing Love Your Body has been rewarding on so many levels, but being able to sell rights into so many territories means the important messages in this book will reach millions and millions of young girls right around the world.’

Quarto will publish Love Your Body in the UK, US and Canada in April 2020.

In November, Five Mile will publish Sanders’ Me Time, described by publishing director Niki Horin as ‘a self-love bible that reframes the idea of self-care from single acts of self-indulgence to an ongoing practice of self-love that nurtures our physical, mental, spiritual and future selves’. Five Mile will also publish Sanders’ next picture book in 2020.
