Highlights of Our Year 
Langtons International Agency and Book Marketing International have had a great year! Thank you to all who have supported us during 2015.

This has been a totally exciting and fascinating year for us. We have had the pleasure of selling the memoir Trumbo by Bruce Cook, to Grand Central Publishing,  in time for the movie's release in November with Bryan Cranston, Helen Mirren and Diane Lane, in starring roles. Now nominated for three SAG and Critics' Choice Movie Awards for best actor, best supporting actress and best ensemble. 

Both the regular book and the movie tie-in book are doing very well and have been translated into four languages, with many great reviews in national newspapers, radio and on the internet.  Trumbo the book  is on its way to being a best seller.

Art in The Blood  by Sherlockian expert and Emmy Award Winning author, Bonnie MacBird, sold to Harper Collins UK, is also doing very well.  Sold as a trilogy, the first book came out in UK and USA in September 2015.  It has now been sold to 13 countries internationally for publication in 2016 and is receiving accolades in the UK and the USA.

Carey Harrison's quartet has been bought by Endeavour Press, UK where the three books out of the "Liskeard Quartet" have taken on a new lease of life.  Carey is the author of 16 published books and 40 stage plays and the son of Rex Harrison and Lily Palmer.
Dr. Sam Alibrando's fascinating book Kilter  was sold to Career Press in October, to be published in 2016. 
Ann-Margaret Carrozza's book, The Love Contract, which we sold to Skyhorse Publishing for publication in 2016, is co-authored with prize-winning journalist Richard Schwartz. Ann-Margaret is also signed with Studio City Productions to be the featured legal expert in a new reality show.
Dancing on Her Grave by Diana Montane and Carolina Sarassa sold to Lifetime television for a two-hour movie.
