SMP Nabs Perinot’s Next Historical
Publisher's Weekly, September 1, 2014

"Sophie Perinot sold world English rights to her historical novel Medicis Daughter to St. Martin’s Press editor Toni Kirkpatrick. Agent Jacques de Spoelberch represented the author. The book is set in 17th-century France and follows a beautiful princess who, de Spoelberch explained, “walks the knife edge between the demands of her serpentine mother, Catherine de Medicis, and those of her conscience.” Medicis Daughter is set for a late 2015 release."


De Spoelberch Reps Three
Publisher's Weekly, August 4, 2014

"Jacques de Spoelberch, from J. de S. Associates, sold three new projects. Bloomsbury's Rob Galloway, in his first acquistion, picked up world rights to Michael Witwer's Empire of Imagination: The Legend of Gary Gygax, a biography of the co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons. Bloomsbury plans to publish the book in summer 2015.

De Spoelberch also reprsented Michael Stanley (the pseudonym for the writing team of Stanley Trollip and Michael Sears), who sold North American rights to the next two novels in the Detective Kubu series to Marcia Markland of St. Martin's Press/Thomas Dunne. Death in the Family, the first of the two novels, is slated for summer 2015.

Mike Greenberg sold world rights to his new novel, My Father's Wives, again to editor Kate Nintzel at William Morrow, in a deal brokered by de Spoelberch. Greenberg is the cohost of ESPN's Mike and Mike and author of the the novel All You Could Ask For (2013). My Father's Wives, set for release in January 2015, is narrated by a man who is 'impelled by a sudden shock to his own life to go on a search to understand his marriage, his father, and himself.'"
