The authors of the hit Irish novel Oh My God What A Complete Action have signed a triple book deal with renowned UK publisher Penguin Random House.

The debut novel by Sarah Breen and Emer McLysaght topped the bestseller list in Ireland last year.

Now Michael Joseph, the women's fiction imprint of Penguin Random House, has won an auction for the rights of the book, and its two yet-to-be written follow-ups.

OMGWACA follows the trials and tribulations of 28 year old Aisling, who works in Dublin but goes home to see her mammy every weekend without fail.

The Carlow and Kildare writers say "Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine Aisling flying the Irish coop, so to have Michael Joseph and Penguin Random House showing her such love is so, so exciting for us. We're also in great company with our literary heroines Marian Keyes and Sue Townsend part of the Michael Joseph family too."

In December, Breen and McLysaght signed a six figure Irish book deal for two more novels, and it was reported a film deal was also being negotiated.
