Well, it happened: my novel Believers recently sold and will be published by Algonquin Books.
Here's the announcement from Publishers Lunch:
Roe's BELIEVERS, about a troubled family whose comatose daughter may or
may not be performing miracles, and the transformative power of hope on
the visitors who line up to see her, to Andra Miller at Algonquin, in a
pre-empt, by Michelle Brower at Folio Literary Management."
After years of hard work, it all came together pretty quickly. Throughout the entire process, I was so impressed with my agent, Michelle Brower, who's been very patient and very supportive over the years.
And I've heard such wonderful things about Algonquin and look forward to working with Andra Miller, who edits Tayari Jones and Caroline Leavitt, among others.
Right now it's looking like the earliest pub date would be fall 2014.
I'm thrilled beyond words. Just kind of soaking it all in and feeling very, very lucky.
