Monday, June 27th, 2005 • 2 Comments on Same Story, Another Sale
I was hit by a strange sense of deja vu when I accidentally stumbled upon Maxim’s bookstore Murder One in London two years ago. An hour or so later, when I finally made my way back out onto the street, I decided I really wanted to work with Maxim Jakubowski one day. The man is a legend—and now he wants my story for his book. I’m thrilled.
This will make the third publication of this story, as it first appeared early last year in a book club edition from Venus Book Club (subsidiary of Doubleday Book Club) called Master/slave. The entire collection was then picked up by Berkley Trade and that anthology is due out next week. The new
edition is due out in December. Who knew a story set in a library would be so popular?
Selling reprint rights to a story is like finding money in last year’s winter coat. A very sweet treat, indeed.
