Here's another fabulous procurement for Penguin Random House South Africa and looks to be a goodie so keep your eyes peeled for this upcoming release ...
Paige Nick
Penguin Random House South Africa has bought rights to publish well-known columnist and author Paige Nick’s new novel in South Africa.

Nick is an award-winning advertising copywriter, writes highly popular columns for the Sunday Times and is the author of the acclaimed novels
A Million Miles From Normal and This Way Up. A selection of the Sunday Times columns and the letters they inspired was recently published as Pens Behaving Badly.

She made her international debut as part of Helena S. Paige: the pen name for the writer trio Paige Nick, Sarah Lotz and Helen Moffett, who wrote a series of choose-your-own-adventure erotic novels, now published in 21 countries.

Nick’s new novel, to be published in March 2016, is titled Dutch Courage, and follows the fortunes of a South African schoolteacher as she is forced to stand in for her injured sister as a Rihanna impersonator at a ‘Cabaret Bar’ in Amsterdam. Little does she know that she will be working at Legends – a strip club with a difference, where celebrity impersonators bare all by night and live together in a crowded apartment by day.

Fourie Botha, publisher of local fiction at Penguin Random House, says: “Paige has the golden touch. Dutch Courage is a complete delight and we’re so happy to be working with her.”

The deal was brokered by agent Oli Munson from A M Heath in London. Munson says: ‘I couldn’t be happier that Paige’s fresh, funny fish out of water novel will be published by Penguin Random House. Looking at the vigour of their list, It really is the most perfect of fits.’
