I have another exciting acquisition to announce.
Jan Redford’s debut, END OF THE ROPE: A Mountain Memoir, in the tradition of Wild by Cheryl Strayed, set in the Rockies, starting as a rash young climber bouncing from mountain to mountain and relationship to relationship, to losing the love of her life in a climbing accident, then becoming pregnant with his friend’s baby and struggling in a stormy marriage, to finally breaking free to make her own way in life and graduate from UBC’s MFA program in Creative Writing. Canada English rights to Amanda Lewis at Random House Canada for Spring 2018 by Samantha Haywood of Transatlantic Agency.
I first met Jan over email in 2012, and was impressed by her spirit and her immense work ethic. I had the pleasure of meeting Jan in person when I was in Vancouver in March. We’re working away on the revisions now.
