Midas Consulting helps bestselling author Valerie Mendes find new publisher

Following a decision to change direction and start writing historical novels, bestselling children’s and YA author, Valerie Mendes, approached Midas Consulting with a view to helping her find a publisher for her new book Larkswood. Within ten minutes of submitting our Publishing Strategy Valerie, mother of film director Sam Mendes, found hew new agent David Headley at DHH Literary Agency.

Orion Publisher Kate Mills has just bought world rights to two historical novels from Mendes with plans to publish Larkswood in early 2014. Larkswood will tell the story of the Hamilton family and how, in the glorious summer of 1896, disaster strikes the family and leaves it divided.

Valerie said “Thanks to your Report, I found my new Agent, David Headley, who, on the strength of Larkswood, has just negotiated a two-book deal for me with Orion. Without you, I should never have found him.”
