IPR License, the global and digital marketplace for books rights, has announced the result of its inaugural member ‘Agents Pick’ with the winner, Just Two Weeks by Amanda Sington-Williams, being approached by top literary agency Andrew Lownie.
Five pieces of work were shortlisted: The Valbonne Monologues by Chris France, An Unbreakable Bond by Mary Wood, The Altruists’ Pact by Mark Andrew, A Wealth Of Energy by David Gunstone and Just Two Weeks by Amanda Sington-Williams – see below for details and to enquire about the rights available for any of the shortlisted works, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tom Chalmers, Managing Director at IPR License, commented: “The quality of the work shortlisted was suitably high and this is reflected in the fact that a top agency like Andrew Lownie immediately spotted Amanda’s potential. IPR License is all about showcasing authors work and finding ways to get it in front of agents, publishers and rights professionals across the globe and we look forward to our ‘Agents Picks’ taking the literary world by storm.”
David Haviland, agent at The Andrew Lownie Literary Agency, added: “It’s great to be involved in this initiative and its very encouraging to see some great new talent emerge amongst IPR members. Just Two Weeks is a gripping psychological thriller, loaded with suspense and menace. The characters are drawn with great depth, and the plot keeps us guessing throughout, before reaching a suitably unnerving climax. And we very much look forward to working closely with Amanda in the future.”
