Big News: Thornton's "Princess" Settles in at Berkley!
Here's the huge announcement from Publisher's Weekly that I've been dying to spill for the last month!
"American Princess, about Theodore Roosevelt’s daughter Alice, was preempted, in a world rights acquisition, by Kate Seaver at Berkley. The author, Stephanie Thornton, who was represented by Kevan Lyon at the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency, sold two books in the deal. American Princess, Berkley said, tells a 'sweeping tale' of a first daughter 'whose wild antics in the White House made her America’s first media sensation.' The book, which will be published as a paperback original in early 2019, delves into how this politically connected woman went on to become a power broker 'as the wife of a debonair congressman and the mistress to a powerful senator.'"
I'm so excited that Alice Roosevelt's story found a wonderful home at Berkley, and that soon you'll all be able to read about her wild and crazy antics! 2019 is going to be a great year!
