Blissful news

I've been sitting on this since the end of last week.  Now it is official, I can announce it publicly! 

In general it always makes me happy to have positive arrangements sorted out for moving forward, but I'm particularly thrilled to be working with  Ed Park, longtime friend and literary co-conspirator: the conversation I had with him a couple weeks ago about what I might do to make the novel even better (book-writing is never done, and I am afraid I am an inveterate draft-writer!) was one of the most inspiring I've ever had.  Let the revisions begin - once this semester is through!

Guggenheim recipient and Columbia professor Jenny Davidson's THE MAGIC CIRCLE, revolving around three women friends in their thirties who all share a passion for gaming, with shocking results, to Ed Park at Amazon Publishing, for publication in Winter 2013, by Kathleen Anderson at Anderson Literary Management (World English).


  1. This is brilliant news although, when I read the heading, my first assumption was that somehow you had managed to rediscover the mysterious lost week. I realise that was a crazy assumption, but it was my first one.

  2. Hahaha, yes, quite right - that really would have been good news!

  3. Yes, indeed, Jenny, most people simply lose a weekend, only you could lose a week! (not for the same reason I am sure ;-))

    But mainly, congratulations, what wonderful news. I am so impressed by Amazon'd continued innovations and this is great for you and for readers.

  4. Very excited for you Jenny - and can't wait to read the book!

  5. Wow, that's awesome news -- congrats!!
