Deal announcement: Imprint of Simon & Schuster buys “The Regulars”!
We’re sending all the collective hip-hip-hoorays of the Internet writersphere to client Georgia Clark, whose second novel, THE REGULARS, sold last week in a preempt deal to Emily Bestler Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. It’s due out in 2016, but what a way to start 2015!
I loved this manuscript for its whip-smart humor and clever premise: Three twenty-something women in New York get their hands on a potion that makes them gorgeous, and they use their looks to attract some coveted career successes. But being beautiful has some ugly complications that leave them longing to be just “regular” again, and they learn a lot about themselves, their friendship, and what it means to truly beautiful in a culture that values prettiness above all.
Congratulations, Georgia! We’ll keep an eye on your website for news and updates!
