Here there be deals
So even though Kevin reported the details already, it’s still excellent to see the official PM writeup:
Kevin Wignall’s WHO IS CONRAD HIRST?, about a professional hit man who
wants out of the business, to David Rosenthal at Simon & Schuster,
by Deborah Schneider at Gelfman Schneider.
Speaking of returning crime writers, no doubt plenty of people will be happy to hear this news:
Carol O’Connell’s FIND ME, a story of love, loss, death
—and discovery —that will permanently change Kathleen Mallory, to Neil Nyren at Putnam, by Larry Kirshbaum at LJK Literary Management (NA)
And as it happens, O’Connell just turned in the manuscript earlier this year, and the book is slated for publication on December 28 (if Amazon is correct in their assumptions.)
And finally, yup, another blogger gets a book deal, but this one really makes sense:
Melissa Plaut’s NEW YORK HACK, about the author’s years driving a New York City yellow medallion cab, “a career change she made after having decided at the age of twenty-nine
to become “the driver of my own life,” to Bruce Tracy at Villard, in a
pre-empt, by Erin Hosier at The Gernert Company (world). Film/television rights: Brooke Ehrlich for Rabineau Wachter & Sanford.
