Thriller author Sam Blake is hoping that Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) will bring a little extra magic to the audio book of her new bestseller Keep Your Eyes on Me. With the audio market one of the fastest growing sectors in the book business, Blake is thrilled that her feminist novel of revenge is the first full audio narration that Lynch has agreed to. Available now through all audio channels, Lynch’s reading of Keep Your Eyes On Me will also be available via the library service’s Borrowbox.
Bolinda acquired World English Language Audio rights to Keep Your Eyes on Me Sam Blake’s first standalone thriller described as ‘Strangers on Train meets Dial M For Murder’. TM Logan, bestselling author of the Richard and Judy Book Club choice The Holiday, said “‘Revenge is sweet in this deliciously entertaining thriller, as two women scorned aim to settle a few scores – with an ingenious plan that will have you cheering them every step of the way.’
Bolinda previously published the audio editions of Blake’s bestselling police procedural series featuring Irish detective Cat Connolly, the first of which was an instant bestseller and was shortlisted for Irish Crime Novel of the Year.
Publishing in audio on the 09/01/2020, Bolinda are delighted that the sensational Irish actress Evanna Lynch will be narrating Keep Your Eyes on Me – Lynch rose to prominence in the role of Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter film series, appearing in the last four films. Bolinda believe that Lynch’s notable voice and Irish roots will build on the powerful, fast-paced thriller penned by Sam Blake, for a unique listening experience.
The deal for World English Language audio rights was agreed between Ellis Moore, Senior Rights and Content Manager at Bolinda, and Simon Trewin of the Simon Trewin Literary Agency. This star-studded narration follows a string of powerful castings from Bolinda, including Louise Brealey to narrate of the award-winning international bestseller, The Five: The Untold Stories of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper by Hallie Rubenhold, alongside other powerful voices such as Colin Morgan, Russell Tovey, Emelia Fox and Matt Lucas.
Ellis Moore, Senior Rights & Content Manager at Bolinda, said, “It has been an absolute pleasure working with Simon and Sam to acquire and cast this wonderfully crafted thriller – bringing Evanna’s voice to such powerful female characters has been such a huge added bonus and she will be known around the globe.”
Simon Trewin, agent and founder of Simon Trewin Literary Agency, reveals, “Sam Blake, Bolinda for audio, and Corvus for print, is the perfect trio and I am excited to see what heights we can reach between us all in 2020”
Sam Blake said “I’m absolutely thrilled that Evanna agreed to read Keep Your Eyes on Me – this is the first time she’s done a full audio book narration and it’s my first psychological thriller, so it’s doubly exciting. I flew to London to meet her while she was recording and loved everything she brought to the script, the characters and their accents.”
Hitting the bestseller lists on release, Keep Your Eyes on Me is a story of two wronged women with one deadly plan – revenge. It’s a total change for Sam Blake, but one she is very excited by.
The audio edition is available from 09/01/2020 in trade CD, MP3CD and digitally, as well as in libraries – available digitally through the BorrowBox library lending app, physical CD, MP3CD and Playaway format.
