We’re delighted for TLC mother-daughter duo Perdita and Honor Cargill, whose debut YA novel Waiting for Callback was critiqued by TLC, and promptly signed with Hannah Sheppard at DHH Agency, who sold UK rights to Simon & Shuster in a two-book deal. The Bookseller article announcing the acquisition can be found here. Of their experience with TLC, Perdita said:
“We not only got a great report, we also found our perfect agent – Hannah Sheppard at DHH Literary Agency. Consider our expectations to have been well and truly exceeded! We can’t thank TLC enough for their genius matching of manuscript to reader.”
We’re thrilled for Perdita and Honor, and can’t wait to see their book on shelves. Waiting for Callback, aimed at readers aged 11+, is about Elektra, a young girl who is discovered by an acting agent. She dreams of Oscars glory but instead lurches from one cringe-worthy moment to the next, falling out with her best friend along the way.
