Tyler Keevil sells new novel

24 Oct

Tyler KeevilHuge congratulations to our own Tyler Keevil, prolific author and Course Leader for the BA in Creative Writing at the University of Gloucestershire, whose third novel has been purchased by Harper Collins imprint  The Borough Press.

Tyler’s new novel, No Good Brother, follows Tim Harding, a Canadian  deckhand who is trying to make an honest living when his trouble-prone younger brother, Jake, tracks him down at the Vancouver shipyards. Tim senses trouble, but nothing prepares him or us for the wild adventure that follows. The publisher describes it as “a rip-roaring novel of loyalty, love, danger and family.”

Holly Ainley, commissioning editor at The Borough Press, acquired world all language rights from Becky Thomas at Johnson & Alcock in a five-figure deal. She said, “I am a huge fan of Tyler’s writing and No Good Brother is an inspired story that defies expectation at every turn. It combines the beautifully controlled literary style of his short stories, with his trademark sharp-witted and heartfelt novelistic style.”

Keevil said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the Borough list. No Good Brother is an important book for me and I know it couldn’t be in better hands.”

Unfortunately you’ll have to wait a while to read it: the novel is scheduled for publication in February 2018. Congratulations Tyler!
