Novel Bookcamp Alumna Jennifer Rupp Signs Book Deal
We’re thrilled to announce that Novel-in-Progress Bookcamp alumna Jennifer Rupp has signed a four-book deal with Entangled Publishing and Audible books.
“[They] will publish four novels from my Highland House series under my pen name Jennifer Trethewey,” Jennifer said. “The ink has barely dried.”
Entangled is part of Macmillan, a big publishing umbrella that includes Farrar, Straus & Giroux; Henry Holt & Co.; Picador; St. Martin’s Press; Tor/Forge, and other imprints. http://us.macmillan.com/publishers/entangled
Jennifer brought two of her manuscripts to the Bookcamp in 2015 and 2016. We’re pleased with her publishing success and glad the program could assist her in taking that next step.
“Having participated in the Novel-in-Progress Bookcamp, learning from Phil, Lisa, and SJ, being a member of WWA and attending the conference this past fall all contributed to my formation into a “real” writer,” Jennifer said. “You’d think I’d be able to find adequate words of gratitude, but all I can say is thank you.”
She is finishing work on the first manuscript for the Entangled imprint, Jennifer explained. “I’m given six months to complete each book so I’ve got tons of work to do. I’m nervous, but I’m really happy.”
The coming Novel-in-Progress Bookcamp program will occur May 7–13, 2017. It takes place in southeastern Wisconsin at a lovely 100-acre rural retreat center. The Bookcamp is an annual six-day residential workshop, first held Spring 2014, for emerging authors working on a book-length manuscript, offering instruction and guidance by published novelists, editors, and literary agents.
The concurrent Writing Retreat offers six days of personal writing time, with guidance from Bookcamp staff and the support of fellow writers in an encouraging atmosphere.
Registration is now open for a few remaining slots for the 2017 program in May. For more information, visit: Novel-in-Progress Bookcamp & the Writing Retreat.
