The Latest Deals
June 5, 2013
|Former NYT editor and creator of the blog Kenneth in the (212) Kenneth Walsh's WASN'T TOMORROW WONDERFUL?, about a suburban childhood spent dreaming of life in the big city, and the relationships, anxiety disorders and places in between, to Don Weise at Magnus Books, in a nice deal, for publication in December 2013, by Christopher Schelling at Selectric Artists (World).|
Very pleased to share with you the news that my agent found a publisher for my debut book, "WASN'T TOMORROW WONDERFUL? My Not-So-Straight Path to the (212)" -- a collection of personal essays, aka "a memoir" -- for release this December from Magnus Books! (The deal memo just went up on Publishers Marketplace.)
I imagine I will be talking about it more than enough in the months ahead -- it'll make the perfect holiday gift! -- but I wanted to take this moment to thank My Two Christophers for inching this dream closer to becoming a reality: My agent, Christopher Schelling, who first approached me in 2006 saying he thought I was "funny" and wanted to know if I "had a book in me" -- I did, it just took awhile! -- and Christopher Carozzo, who helped me go through six years of blog posts to figure out which topics might be chapterworthy.
More details TK, but I couldn't be more excited!
UPDATE: The pub date was moved to March 5, 2014.
