Hodder & Stoughton are thrilled to announce that they will publish Sleeping
Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King on 26th September 2017.
The novel is the first collaboration between the father and son. The deal for British
Commonwealth and audio rights was made by Jamie Hodder‐Williams and
Chuck Verrill, of Darhansoff & Verrill, representing Stephen King, and Jenny
Meyer of the Jenny Meyer Literary Agency on behalf of The Williams Company,
representing Owen King. Translation rights are handled by Jenny Meyer and,
representing Stephen King, Chris Lotts of The Lotts Agency.
A simultaneous audio edition will be published by Hodder Audio.
The novel, which asks the question ‘What would happen if all the women
abandoned the world?’ is a wonderfully provocative story of supernatural
suspense. Editor Philippa Pride says: ‘We are thrilled that these two hugely
talented writers – father and son – have come together to write such an
exciting, powerful and original novel, rich with beautiful imagery and arresting
characters. It is a wonderful achievement and publication will be a major event.’
Publication date: 26 September 2017
