To be edited by Sareeta Domingo

Katie Brown, senior commissioning editor at Trapeze, has signed Who's Loving You?, an anthology of stories by women of colour about love, sex and desire edited by author Sareeta Domingo, who will also be a contributing author. Trapeze has world rights through Sara Keane at Keane Kataria Literary Agency, and will publish in early 2021.

Confirmed contributors include Dorothy Koomson, Irenosen Okojie, Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, Daniellé Dash, and Sara Jafari.

Domingo said: "I couldn't be more thrilled to be working on a project that has been so close to my heart for so long. The opportunity to create an anthology that explores and challenges the idea of romantic fiction, by sharing stories from an unbelievably talented group of authors, is fantastically exciting. And working with Katie and the team at Trapeze Books is the perfect fit!"

Brown said: "When I met Sareeta, I was immediately blown away by her vision, drive, and ideas and when she told me about the concept for her love stories, I knew I had to be the one to publish the collection. This is definitely a dream project for me and working alongside Sareeta - a prodigious talent - makes it all the more special. Sareeta has brought on board some of the most exciting writers working in British publishing and journalism, and we have other incredible contributors who I can't wait to announce."
