Run Your Way to a Book Deal
For that seems to work for Jamie Freveletti, whom I think I met briefly at ThrillerFest and is a member of the Chicago Contingent:
Jamie Freveletti’s RUNNING FROM THE DEVIL, introducing an ultra
marathon runner who uses her experience as a bio-chemist to survive in
the jungle after a hijacking gone wrong, to Carolyn Marino at Harper,
in a six-figure deal, in a pre-empt, in a two-book deal, by Barbara
Poellee at the Irene Goodman Agency (world).
