There is more success to report for another writer we have published. Seattle-based Tara Conklin’s debut novel was released in February and has been enjoying great sales and receiving wonderful reviews. The House Girl, published last month by HarperCollins U.S. imprint William Morrow, has been called “assured and arresting” by the Chicago Tribune, is “Infused with ominous atmosphere and evocative detail” according to the Washington Post and Marie Claire predicts The House Girl “will be the book-club book of 2013”
Tara says “It’s been so heartening to see my first novel (which began as the short story published in the Bristol Short Story Prize Anthology Vol 3) be embraced by readers and (most) critics! The past few months have been a whirlwind, but a good one”.
Tara was shortlisted for the 2010 Bristol Short Story Prize for her stunning story ‘Signs of Our Redemption’ which went on to become The House Girl. We wish Tara every success with the novel.
