I’m delighted to announce that Vintage will be publishing both As Sweet As Honey and Inheritance as paperbacks, on November 5, 2013. The date is coincidental but serendipitous, as it happens to be my birthday. It is been tremendously fun and fulfilling to have a new novel out after so many years. I’ll celebrate the sixth-month anniversary of As Sweet As Honey in mid-August. My agency with Sandra, Elise, and Andrea at the helm is patient and enthusiastic, cheering me up when my spirits were down, and applauding my small steps. I am so grateful Sonny Mehta signed off on the project with his blessings, and that Ann, my editor par excellence, stood by me as the novel took its final shape. Sara, my publicist, has been promoted, and I am now in the capable hands of Erinn, whom I look forward to working with. Random House merged with Penguin, combining two of my favorite houses to ally against faceless corporate booksellers. And now, Vintage, keeping me in print. An embarrassment of riches.
Here is a peek at the new covers:
