News too good to wait: Eowyn Ivey’s debut novel sells to Little, Brown imprint

Publisher’s Weekly has broken the news, and our own Eowyn Ivey (blog contributor, 49 Alaska Writing Center volunteer, bookseller, and all-around wonderful person) has confirmed the deal:
“Frontiersman reporter who now works at Fireside Books, an independent bookstore in Palmer, Alaska Eowyn Ivey’s THE SNOW CHILD, a saga set in 1920s Alaska, where one evening a childless couple build a child out of snow, then awake the next morning to find a mysterious little girl running into the woods, to Andrea Walker at Reagan Arthur Books/Little, Brown, in a pre-empt, by Jeff Kleinman at Folio Literary Management (world). German rights to Rowohlt, in a pre-empt, by Sebastian Ritscher at Mohrbooks on behalf of Reagan Arthur Books, and Italian rights in a pre-empt, to Einaudi, by Luigi Bernabo at Bernabo Associates also on behalf of Reagan Arthur Books.”
Wow. Wow. Wow. Let’s hear it for Eowyn!

  1. Eowyn,
    I've been wondering when you would find a home for your novel. Congratulations! I look forward to reading it.

  2. Thank you all for sharing in my excitement. I was even more thrilled to see it announced here at 49Writers than in Publishers Weekly because I adore this blog and feel as if I'm among friends here. Thanks, Andromeda, for your post about it!

  3. So glad someone is already checking out the website! It's a work in progress, but hopefully in the next couple of weeks, it will be up and running. Then, fingers crossed, I'll be reachable by email, and also on Twitter and Facebook.
