We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Bombora (formerly known as Eksmo Non-Fiction) has acquired Russian rights to Frank Martela’s unique book The Meaning of Your Life Explained, bringing the number of territories to four. Rights are previously sold in the US to HarperCollins, in the Netherlands to Ambo Anthos. In Finland, Gummerus will publish the book.
The hottest topic at the Frankfurt Book Fair was obviously The Little Book of Bad Moods by Lotta Sonninen, the mean little activity book for people who are done and over with positivity. After Frankfurt we’ve closed a string of wonderful deals: The Little Book of Bad Moods will be published in 30 territories and counting!
Bombora bought the Russian rights, the Latvianrights went to Zvaigzne and Stilus knjiga acquired the Croatian rights. Polish rights were acquired by Zysk i S-ka, the Icelandic rights went to Forlagid, and Planeta bought the Portuguese rights. Gramedia Pustaka Utama acquired for Indonesia and Israelirights went to Kinneret-Zmora.
“We are thrilled to be the Croatian publishers of The Little Book of Bad Moods! Our team’s positive reaction was immediate and unanimous. There are many anti-self help titles on the market but very few feature such a wonderful and innovative concept. An activity book that gives you instant results – and lots of fun!“
– George Alessandro Laidlaw, publisher, Stilus knjiga, Croatia
“The Little Book of Bad Moods is a hilarious activity book and a cure for the continuous race to be your better self. I love this funny way to relieve stress and all negative emotions. It is said that complaining should be the Polish national sport. Now we can take it even to a higher level!”
– Anna Giryń, editor, Zysk i S-ka, Poland
“There is no better way to improve your mood than to fill in the wonderful sheets of The Little Book of Bad Moods. Excellent philosophy from the happiest nation on earth, reminiscent of the Muskrat’s (from the Moomins) philosophy, The Uselessness of Everything.”
– Stella Soffía Jóhannesdóttir, editor, Forlagid, Iceland
“We’ve all been force-fed positive New-Age messages for years now and readers deserve BAD MOODS and some exposure to the truth: life sucks!”
– Ziv Lewis, acquisition manager, Kinneret-Zmora, Israel
