WSA News

It has been an unprecedented month to say the least. Everything that has happened seems to be ripped from the pages of a novel. But it’s real. Here at WSA we are all working from home and getting lots done… reading proposals and manuscripts, talking with editors, and doing deals. Yes, publishers are buying books! 

Along with all our book news below, I’m thrilled and delighted that Laura Mazer, formerly executive editor at Seal Press, an imprint of Hachette Book Group has joined us as an agent, expanding our presense on the West Coast.

In this time of great uncertainty, books and the escape they provide are more vital than ever. 

Here’s a round-up of what has happened at Wendy Sherman Associates recently:

A Good Neighborhood by Therese Anne Fowler was published on March 10 and became an instant New York Times bestseller. Barnes & Noble named a Good Neighborhood it’s March book club selection and hosted a nationwide book club event on April 7 (online).

Mercy House by Alena Dillon has received rave reviews and continues to be a book club darling. News flash: Amy Shumer and CBS are developing the novel for TV.

The Stationery Shop by Marjan Kamali made its paperback debut and continues to captivate readers and garner praise.

The Audacity to Be Queen by Gina DeVee launched with an epic two day event in Miami in early March, which feels like a lifetime ago.

Stay tuned and stay well.
