Publisher’s Marketplace – In Women’s/Romance Deals…
Gwen Jones’s ANDY DEVINE TAKES A WIFE, a reporter decides to interview a man who had the nerve to post an antiquated and down right rude ad for a wife, never expecting to find her very own Mr. Right, to Tessa Woodward at Avon, in a nice deal, for publication in June 2013, by Marisa Corvisiero at Corvisiero Literary Agency.
You’ve read the excerpt, you’ve salivated for more, and NOW, after months of waiting, you’re finally going to be rewarded! HarperCollins Publishers has bought Andy Devine, though you’ll probably see its debut under a slightly different moniker. Who cares! Andy sure doesn’t, and neither do I, as we’re both thrilled to the point of incoherency! Many thanks to my Avon editor, the lovely Tessa Woodward, literary agent/goddess Marisa Corvisiero of the Corvisiero Literary Agency, and beta reader, fellow writer and friend extraordinaire, Linda J. Parisi, who knows genius when she sees it fall flat on her face. And MANY THANKS to the beautiful people at Liberty States Fiction Writers and their Create Something Magical Writers Conference for bringing HarperCollins and this writer together. Beyond fabulous–ALL of you!
Tenative date for publication is Spring 2013, but stay tuned for more info!
