Alex Hay: Publication News!

  Publication News! 

We're absolutely thrilled to announce that Headline Publishing Group has pre-empted Caledonia Novel Award 2022 winner Alex Hay's The Housekeepers for a six-figure sum. His debut novel will be published by Headline Review as a lead launch in Spring, 2023.

Caledonia Novel Award 2022 judge Alice Lutyens, who signed Alex following the competition, described the Edwardian heist as "a dastardly plot of revenge and retribution...deft, clever and slippery...escapism at its best".

Senior commissioning editor Frankie Edwards said: "Alex has written such a slick, clever and extraordinarily entertaining novel in The Housekeepers, one that revels in its opulent setting while deftly pushing at something altogether darker. I adored the incredible women Mrs King draws from the underbelly of Edwardian London to pull off her outlandish endeavour - each with their own score to settle and very particular take on morality - and couldn't help but urge them on in their pursuit of revenge, riches and the truth."

Alex commented: "I really don't think any of this would have happened had I not entered the Caledonia Novel Award, when the book caught the fair winds of Alice's attention and benefited from all the subsequent excitement around the competition result. I really can credit it with so very much and am most grateful."

Many congratulations to Alex!
