Thread Publisher Claire Bord acquired World English Language rights in Happy Single Mother: Changing the story of the modern family by author and journalist Sarah Thompson. from Rowan Lawton at The Soho Agency.

Claire said:

‘In Happy Single Mother, Sarah de-bunks many of the myths surrounding single parenting: from how it affects your child’s development to the desperate-single-mother stereotypes still playing out in contemporary culture. She also examines and celebrate the many positive impacts that being raised by a single parent can have on a child. Sarah is covering such important ground and shining a much needed and long overdue light on what it means to be a single parent today.’

Sarah said:

‘I’m extremely proud to be joining the Thread family. It’s great to know that Happy Single Mother is in the hands of such an experienced and knowledgeable team, who have really understood what this book is about from the start. While it’s still undoubtedly tough, single motherhood isn’t always the booby prize, and there is plenty to learn from and celebrate about the contemporary single-parent lifestyle. I can’t wait to get to work on what I hope will be a revealing, supportive and relatable book for single mothers (and single mothers to be) everywhere.’

Happy Single Mother will be published in ebook, paperback and audio on 3rd March 2022
