Military stories make me sad and I just don’t find them appealing right now, given the current state of things.
NYT bestselling author JoAnn Ross’s SHATTERED, the first in a trilogy featuring military heroes in southern romantic suspense novels about reunion, redemption, and danger, to Kara Welsh and Laura Cifelli at NAL, in a major deal, in a three-book deal, by Robin Rue at Writers House (world).
I might give this a chance because I think others have liked her Dorchester(?) books
Bonnie Vanak’s EMPATH, in which a veterinarian is a gentle-natured creature until she is seduced by an embittered warrior werewolf who has to mate with her and turn her into a killer to destroy the shapeshifters stalking his pack, to Ann Leslie Tuttle at Harlequin Nocturne, in a nice deal, by Natasha Kern at Natasha Kern Literary Agency (world).
Never read the debut.
Michelle Yu and Blossom Kan’s TRADING CHOPSTICKS, sequels to their debut China Dolls, to Diana Szu at Thomas Dunne Books, in a nice deal, by Natasha Kern at Natasha Kern Literary Agency (World English).
These were termed Paperback rights so I guess they were already published?
2006 Rita nominee Lyn Cote’s TEXAS: Star of Destiny historical trilogy, which follows three women through the rough-and-tumble world of 19th century colonial Texas, plus reprint rights to her Blessed Assurance trilogy for a new 3-in-1 anthology, to Cynthia DiTiberio at Avon Inspire, in a very nice deal, by Danielle Egan-Miller at Browne & Miller Literary Associates (world English).
I have a weakness for mother/daughter stories
27-year old Alice Kuipers’ LIFE ON THE REFRIGERATOR DOOR, a portrait of the relationship between a working mother and her teenaged daughter told exclusively through the notes they exchange during the course of a life-altering year, to Claire Wachtel at Harper and Susan Rich at Harper Children’s, for publication.
Hmm. I thought blogger books were over
Blogger and designer Michelle Lamar’s THE WHITE TRASH MOM GIVES ADVICE: Or Why Perfection is Overrated, a humorous but practical guidebook for every woman who’s every struggled with baking, making Halloween costumes from scratch, or the pervasive evil known as school volunteering, to Sheila Oakes at St. Martin’s, by Stephanie Kip Rostan at Levine Greenberg Literary Agency (NA).
