Hodder World pre-emptive deal for lost WW2 memoir

Four publishers were in the mix, but Hodder came up with the deal, negotiated brilliantly by my agent.  They will be calling the book ‘Lucky Johnny: Footballer on the River Kwai,’ and they plan to publish it in May 2014. This is a draft of a memoir only recently discovered at the bottom of a case in an attic.   As a ghostwriter, I have worked on it to make it publishable and I am delighted that it has already provoked so much interest.
