A Double Dose of McDonald
One of my favorite writers, critics and people, Craig McDonald, has scored a two-fer of a book deal:
First there’s the fiction:
Journalist Craig McDonald’s HEAD GAMES, based on the theft of Mexican
Revolutionary Pancho Villa’s head in the 1920s, to Benjamin LeRoy of
Bleak House, for publication in fall 2007, in a two-book deal, by
Svetlana Pironko at Author Rights Agency. Russian rights to Antonina Gall at Arabesque, in a nice deal.
Then there’s the criticism:
Journalist Craig McDonald’s ROGUE MALES: Conversations &
Confrontations About the Writing Life, interviews with major American
and European crime fiction authors, to Benjamin LeRoy of Bleak House,
for publication in 2007, in a two-book deal, by Svetlana Pironko at
Author Rights Agency.
What more is there to say other than congratulations? This is such cool, cool news.
