And even more new deals 

...as reported by the venerable folks at Publisher's Marketplace.

Looks like John Connor's going to be the breakout author of the recent Nine New Blood Campaign from Orion:

Senior prosecutor with the Crown Prosecution Service John Connor's A CHILD'S GAME, the third in the Karen Sharpe series, to Yvette Goulden at Orion, in a two-book deal, for five figures, by Philip Patterson of Marjacq. The BBC has licensed his first two Sharpe novels PHOENIX and THE PLAYROOM for television.

Meanwhile, those in the UK better get their HypeMonster (TM) watch going for this new one:

Young Scottish novelist Stuart MacBride's debut crime novel COLD GRANITE, to Jane Johnson at Harper UK, for six figures, for three, books, for publication beginning in May 2005, by Philip Patterson (world). Goldmann pre-empted German rights for six figures right before LBF, by Andrea Joyce at Harper. Harper's Lucy Vandervilt is selling US rights.
