I have fantastic, wonderful, giddy-making news! My very good friend and critique partner, Nicole Castroman, just sold her debut novel BLACKHEARTS to Simon Pulse. *dancing ensues* If you’re on twitter, head on over to @nicolecastroman and tell her congratulations. And, she’s agreed to answer a few questions for my new blog series “How I Got Here” tomorrow!
Here are the details of her deal:
Sara Sargent at Simon Pulse has acquired Blackhearts by debut author Nicole Castroman. Inspired by the tale of Blackbeard, it’s the story of a forbidden romance between a servant girl desperate for freedom and the master’s son who dreams of a life at sea. But they are caught up in something bigger than their circumstances: a love that changes the course of history. Publication is scheduled for spring 2016; Quinlan Lee at Adams Literary did the deal for world English rights.
