WOO HOO. Just sold the book I’ve been working on for the last two years! As soon as the ink dries on the contract, I’ll tell you more, but here are hints. It’s a:
• Biographical novel along the lines of The Paris Wife by Paula McClain;
• A torrid romance;
• Set in London and Germany from 1910 to 1933 but mostly 1930’s Hollywood during the height of the studio system, when there were “more stars than there are in heaven” and also
• A tale of re-invention.
That’s all I can reveal for now, but I invite you to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’ve guessed who my two main characters are.
A little back-story… My last novel, The Widow Waltz, was published in 2013. Once that manuscript was finished, I immediately started a family saga that I’d still like to complete, but I got thrown off my game by breast cancer. Scary. I put the family saga aside and when I came up for air, started a novel set in the 1970s. I was a few chapters in when suddenly I got the idea for a biographical novel. That book kept saying “write me, write me.” So, I did. Hence last week’s sale.
This will be my fifth novel and sixth book (Slouching Toward Adulthood, book #4, was non-fiction) and it’s as exciting now as it was when I sold my first book. There is nothing about this crazy business of book publishing that I take for granted. Plenty of wonderful books never find a home, so I feel deeply honored to know that my latest effort will turn into a story that readers can enjoy…. though not until 2018.
More details soon, I promise.
With giddy gratitude,
