First book was Amazon hit for Ebury imprint
Del Rey is 'delighted' to announce the sequel to The End of the World Running Club, The End of the World Survivors Club, by Adrian J Walker. Walker’s debut was featured in Simon Mayo’s 2016 Radio 2 Book Club and was a number 1 bestseller on Amazon. Rights in the first book have sold in US, Germany, Russia, France, Spain and Czech Republic.
According to Ebury: 'The End of the World Survivors Club is a post-apocalyptic thriller and sequel to The End of the World Running Club following Edgar Hill’s wife Beth who has survived the apocalypse with a young family in tow. This is a disaster story centring on human endurance with a twist about the lengths a mother will go to in order to save her family.'
Walker said: "I’m so happy to finally bring this second chapter to the story. Writing as Beth was hugely cathartic as I have so much more in common with her character than I do with Ed’s, so I hope readers enjoy hearing her voice as much as I enjoyed writing in it. Her challenge is even more daunting than her husband’s was, so be prepared for some fairly gut-wrenching moments on an epic journey full of familiar (and unfamiliar) faces."
The End of the World Survivors Club by Adrian J Walker will be published as a B format paperback in September 2019, prices at £7.99. Ebury has World All Languages rights.
