News from here and there

Dear faithful reader,

Anyone in New York City this week? I’ll be doing an event 7 p.m. Wednesday March 6 at the Barnes & Noble at 86th and Lexington. It is in conjunction with the Discover Great New Writers program.

In other news, I’m excited to announce that my US and UK publishers have offered me a contract for my next novel.

Here’s an article from The Bookseller magazine:

Headline imprint Tinder Press has acquired a further novel by the author of The Snow Child, Eowyn Ivey.

Publisher Mary-Anne Harrington acquired UK and Commonwealth rights in Ivey’s second novel, Shadows on the Wolverine, through a world rights deal brokered by Jeff Kleinman at Folio Literary Management and Little, Brown US. The publication date is still to be confirmed.

Shadows on the Wolverine tells the story of an adventurer who travels deep into unexplored Alaskan territory to discover that native legends are real and have come to life. The story unfolds through diaries, newspaper clippings, letters and apocrypha. It is inspired by an actual 1885 military expedition.

I’m so honored to be working again with Reagan Arthur here in the US and Mary-Anne Harrington in the UK. The novel is not finished yet, so if you don’t find me online quite as much, you’ll know why — I’m busy writing 🙂

    That is wonderful news! There are many of us looking eagerly ahead for “Shadows”!

    Aowin: This is Caroline Earl( Ida Lake), otherwise known as Grammie to grandchildren who have blogs they set up for me that way. After this, I’ll identify myself. I’ve gifted your book to several friends and relatives and they have loved it, too.

  • Caroline says:

    Sorry I spelled your name wrong. I know better — was in phonetic mode, I guess! (Didn’t know I could change my reply name!)

    Hi Eowyn!
    You’re getting really close to my area (DC/VA/MD)… Please,don’t forget to let me know when and if you’ll be in the DC area, I would love to meet you in person! Melody

  • Donna says:

    Was that by chance Lt Castner’s trip? Karl has that story (Lt Castner’s Alaskan Exploration, 1898) . How marvelous! that was an adventure from the start! So looking forward to this.

  • Paula King says:

    Looking forward to the next –was this the first, started before The Snow Child? I am sponsoring The Snow Child at my book club tomorrow night and have had very positive feedback so far. I loved it, of course! I worked for 12 years in an independent bookstore myself — just the owner and myself — my ideal job, but the store was closed 3 years ago, and since I was close to 70, retired. Stay healthy and keep up the great work!

  • Ann DeSalvo says:

    Just to let you know my book club really enjoyed reading your book even though several members had decided they didn’t like “fairy tales”. We discussed it on a snowy Iowa January morning.I will be in Palmer late July, maybe our paths will cross.

    Is “Shadows on the Wolverine” the real title?
