The Death of the White Rose took a giant leap toward publication today with the receipt of a publishing contract from Bridge Works Publishers of Bridgehampton, NY. Founded by the publisher of the Wall Street Journal, Bridge Works is a boutique company focused on novels. Barbara Phillips, their editorial director, and former features editor of the WSJ, will guide me through a restructuring of the middle and concluding chapters of the novel, helping to make The Death of the White Rose reach its full potential.
I think the process will be much like making sausage—ugly to watch, but delicious to eat when done! I expect to have it complete by December.
Many thanks to my literary agent, Waterside Literary Agency’s Jill Kramer, for making this opportunity a reality.
Bon Voyage, White Rose.
