Publishers grab their first novel with 600,000 pounds in advances | Publications
Bookstores are besieged and publishing houses are fighting, but it seems that the funds for the right book are still there: Ireland's first-time author Kathleen MacMahon has just received an upfront of £600,000 from a publisher in one of the largest book stores this year. An affair between an US banking house and an unemployed British architectural firm, MacMahon's novel So This Is How It Ends, was just picked up by Little, Brown for pub. next year.
He was so interested in securing the book that he made a 600,000 pre-purchase offer for the worldwide UK right to the book and a follow-on offer, said MacMahon's agency Marianne Gunn O'Connor. "In this period when editors are careful when they say they like things, Little, Brown have really thrown their hearts into the balance.
" MacMahon, a TV journalist for the Icelandic channel RTE and a mom of two, said the transaction was "an incredible..... complete dream". However, not to curb the cash, for me the thrill is to publish the book, and that with such a respected publisher. It' s a big drama[but] when I wrote the book, I worked through self-doubt and anxiety and tried to stomp it all the while, so it is like a fantasy to have writers at Little, Brown who say how much they like it.
Little, Brown Sr Rebecca Saunders said that textbooks like MacMahon's, "which have such great coverage and emotive strength, are like golden dust for the writers..... After Marianne, the operative, gave it to me at the[London Book Fair] this evening, I spent the whole evening and sent her an e-mail just before noon saying that I had been crying for the last 45 mins.
It' a giant lrish romance tale - an smart winemaker, if you will. Unfortunately, we weren't the only ones who thought so because Marianne got similar responses from other editors, so we quickly relocated to get the novel off the desk before other editors could stop it.
" MacMahon told the editors of RTE that her novel was "a romance of our time". This book begins with an American about to turn 50, who has dropped his Lehman Brothers jobs, who is concerned about the election and wants Obama to be the winner. Beginning to visit his wife and daughter, he encounters a remote co-worker, an unemployed architectural firm at a low point in his career.
