Daily deals

Krinard was writing paranormals long before it was popular. Why haven’t I read her yet?
Susan Krinard’s three new paranormal romances, to Tracy Farrell for HQN, with Leslie Wainger editing, in a good deal, by Lucienne Diver of Spectrum Literary Agency.

Sounds kind of interesting. But does this mean that its a trilogy? I.e., a three book deal? Ugh.
Charlotte Mede’s debut erotic historical, UNCONTROLLABLE, in which a Da Vinci Code-like hunt for the formula of the 19th-century’s most sought after new weapon — dynamite — is hidden in the musical score of Beethoven’s Eroica, to Kate Duffy at Kensington, in a three-book deal, by Liz Trupin-Pulli at JET Literary Associates (world).

Oh for god’s sakes, no.
Tori Spelling’s “humorous, self-deprecating” memoir, ranging from childhood privileges to tabloid misperceptions, success and regrets, and her quest to define herself on her own terms, to Jennifer Bergstrom and Patrick Price at Simon Spotlight Entertainment, in a pre-empt, for publication in spring 2008, by Dan Strone at Trident Media Group (world).

Okay, I am embarassed to say this, but who is Sarah Elliott?
Sarah Elliott next two books in her historical Regency series, again to Jessica Alvarez at Harlequin, in a nice deal, by Laura Langlie at Laura Langlie.

I’m big on debut authors, but this sounds very eh to me.
Katie Crouch’s debut novel-in-stories GIRLS IN TRUCKS, about a Charleston girl up North, anxious to shake the bonds of good family and Southern womanhood, and a novel, MEN AND DOGS, about an aging veterinarian, to Judy Clain at Little, Brown, at auction, for six figures, for publication beginning in February 2008, by Rob McQuilkin at Lippincott Massie McQuilkin (NA).

This sounds great! I’ll be buying this book.
Kristin Cashore’s debut GRACELING, the story of a world where some people are born with extreme and often feared skills called Graces, and a girl must struggle for redemption from her own horrifying Grace, the Grace of killing, to Kathy Dawson at Harcourt, by Faye Bender at Faye Bender Literary Agency (NA).

Meh. But then I am not an inspy fan.
Cheryl Wyatt’s debut A SOLDIER’S PROMISE, in which a USAF Pararescue Jumper teams with a teacher of special needs students to make dreams come true for a child with cancer, to Melissa Endlich at Steeple Hill Love Inspired, in a nice deal, by Tamela Hancock Murray at Hartline Literary Agency.

Sounds pretty bad.
Jill Amy Rosenblatt’s THE JENNIFER PROJECT, a humorous, do-it-yourself Cinderella tale about a Plain Jane who decides to develop a glamorous “Jennifer persona” only to find that with love wish fulfillment is never easy, to Danielle Chiotti at Kensington, in a two-book deal, by Agnes Birnbaum at Bleecker Street Associates (world).

  1. Your comments cracked me up. So honest. He he. I found this site when I googled my name to find an interview someone had posted.

    If you do happen to pick up my book and read it (NO PRESSURE! đŸ™‚ ), I’d love your feedback. Some readers letters I’ve received so far through harelequin’s Reader Service have been from folks who say they don’t normally read Christian fiction…but liked my book. I’m interested in all feedback, but especially from readers who don’t normally read Inspies.

    Have a great day!

    Cheryl Wyatt
