Nicola’s Hild has a publishing deal!

14 May 2012

Those who read Nicola‘s blog know that she has worked fiercely and with deep commitment for years on her current novel Hild. Finally, we can share the news that pre-eminent US publisher Farrar Strauss & Giroux will publish Hild in fall 2013.

We’ve been doing the happy dance in our house these past weeks. Nicola has a great publisher in FSG and a terrific editor in Sean McDonald, and they have a singular, splendid writer in her. It is a good match.

I’ve read Hild. It is magnificent. It is supernova brilliant. It is the best book Nicola has written so far, and that’s saying a lot. It is powerful, lyrical and brutal, with fascinating characters in an unexpected, compelling story that will take you so many places. Oh my friends, you are in for such a treat.

I am so proud of Nicola I am about to explode. Do me a favor: go read her post about it and leave a well-wishing comment over there. It’s a big day for her. A joyful day. After all Nicola’s hard work, after all her faith and hope, after all her guts and grit, Hild has found a home.
