According to the Telegraph…
After the whirlwind successes of Stephenie Meyer’s vampire-themed books, and JK Rowling’s world of wizards before them, Sally Green has become the latest author to sign a seven-figure fantasy book deal with her novel about witches.
Green, a 52-year-old former accountant, started writing her debut novel Half Bad three years ago. The thriller, which tells the story of modern witches who live secretly among Britons, has been bought by publishers in 36 countries, from Canada to Ukraine. According to The Guardian, the advances for a trilogy of novels are expected to earn £1million.
Added to that, the film rights to Half Bad have been bought by Fox 2000 and Karen Rosenfelt, producer of The Twilight Saga, based on Meyer’s novels, which grossed more than £2 billion at the global box office.
