Unbridled Turns BookSense Pick into Six-Figure PB Deal

I’ve just gotten word that Unbridled Books has sold the paperback rights to one of its big fall titles, Margaret Cezair-Thompson‘s The Pirate’s Daughter, to Random House in “a significant six-figure deal.” The novel, October’s #1 BookSense pick, tells the story of a fictional illegitimate daughter of Errol Flynn, the result of a fling with a Jamaican teenager. Cezair-Thompson, a professor of literature and creative writing at Wellesley, was previously nominated for the Dublin International IMPAC Award in 2001 for her novel The True History of Paradise.
