〉Film and television rights are now available for the fantasy adventure novel, the first in a planned series.
Award-winning author Julia Golding has hit the market with her latest novel, MEL FOSTER AND THE DEMON BUTLER, which is already sending ripples to interested buyers. Recently published on July 30th, 2015 by Egmont, the novel will be the first in an adventure series following the titular Mel Foster, with the next installment titled Mel Foster and the Time Machine.
The story centers on a young boy named Mel Foster, who accidentally revives a giantess, Eve Frankenstein, from inside a block of ice. Luckily, she decides to protect him and help him attempt to foil a plot by Queen Victoria’s butler to use a monster army to destroy the British Empire. It’s up to Mel and his newfound monster friends to stop him.
Golding, a former British diplomat with a doctorate in English literature from Oxford University, has now published over thirty books across a variety of genres. Her debut novel, The Diamonds of Drury Lane, won both the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize and the Nestle Children’s Book Prize in the U.K. In the U.S., her Secrets of the Sirens won the honor book medal of the Green Earth Book Award.
Over half a million of her books have been sold worldwide and translated into several languages. David Highman Associates are repping both the literary and film rights for this hot property.
