Former Rights Director for Canongate – and previously Rights Manager for HarperCollins and New York’s Farrar, Straus and Giroux – Joyce is to work with Saraband to handle rights sales in the North American market.

Andrea Joyce, until recently rights director at Canongate across all territories and media, is to handle North American rights for independent publisher Saraband with immediate effect. Joyce is a past winner of the Bookseller’s British Book Awards Rights Professional of the Year, and has had a career at the top level of rights sales for both British and American publishing companies prior to going freelance in the summer of 2020.

Saraband’s publisher Sara Hunt said: “It is with great pleasure that we are welcoming Andrea to work with our team. Not only is she someone with outstanding experience of rights in publishing at the most senior level, she has the depth of knowledge and passion for the genres we publish, and will be an invaluable asset to our authors.” 

 Andrea Joyce said: “I am absolutely delighted to be handling North American rights for Saraband. They have a brilliant prize-winning list which I am really looking forward to bringing to an even wider international readership.”
