Leicester, UK, June 4, 2019 – W.F. Howes Ltd, an RBmedia company and the UK’s leading audiobook publisher, has acquired the exclusive UK and Commonwealth audiobook rights for Siege by Michael Wolff. The title is the highly anticipated sequel to Wolff’s best-selling Trump exposĂ© Fire and Fury. The audiobook will be released into libraries on 4th June 2019 simultaneously with the print and audio download editions from Little, Brown. 

Like its million-selling predecessor, Siege promises to be an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side. Named a Best Book of the Year by The Guardian, Kirkus Reviews, The Sunday Times, The Observer, and Financial Times, Fire and Fury was W.F. Howes’ #1 bestselling audiobook of 2018 and among the first books to extensively document the continuing conflicts in the Trump White House.

Miles Stevens-Hoare, General Manager of W. F. Howes, comments, “Important titles, such as Siege, should always be made accessible in audiobook format to libraries and their members. We are committed to the fastest and widest distribution of audiobooks in the library market, timed to release concurrently with the trade book.” 

W.F. Howes won exclusive library rights to produce the Siege audiobook and will deliver it digitally to library members through the RBdigital app and platform, as well as in CD format to library and retail markets.
