Give me a moment to catch my breath after writing that headline.
My agent, Stacey Glick, joked, "when it rains, it pours," and that's because only four days after selling Becoming Bonnie to Bess Cozby at Tor/Macmillan, Edyson Entertainment said they'd like to extend an offer to make Becoming Bonnie into a TV series.
Seeing your novel on TV or in film is every author's dream and I am beside myself with giddiness to *maybe* one day see Bonnie, Clyde, Blanche, and Buck come to life on the small screen.
I don't have many details to share right now, but I'll be sure to provide updates if/when they become available.
In the meantime, here's the official TV option announcement from Publishers Weekly!
First and foremost, I'd like to thank my agent, Stacey Glick, for making it possible for me to even write that headline. Her enthusiasm and dedication to this project is something in which I'll be forever thankful.
So what is this project? Becoming Bonnie is my debut historical novel that tells the untold story of how church-going Bonnelyn Parker becomes part of the infamous Bonnie & Clyde duo doing the Roaring 20s. It also happens to be my debut! Wahoo!
I am beyond excited to be working with Bess Cozby from Tor/Macmillan, releasing Becoming Bonnie through their Forge imprint in Spring 2017. I was secretly pining for Bess ever since Stacey pitched her, and I couldn't have been happier when she proclaimed how she loved Bonnie as much as I did/do.
Without further ado: here is the official book deal announcement from Publishers Weekly *squees*
I'd also like to give special shout outs to my husband, Matt, my mom, Susanne, and my author friends, Carolyn Menke and Megan Herman, for their encouragement and support. God knows I wanted to give up many times. He also wouldn't let me.
