As reported on Publisher's Marketplace this week:
Juliette Sobanet's DANCING WITH PARIS, the story of a woman who is sent back in time to 1950's Paris to revisit her past life as the dazzling star of a scandalous Parisian cabaret club, where she must deal with murder, danger and unexpected love, pitched as Midnight in Paris meets Moulin Rouge, to Kelli Martin at Montlake Romance, in a four-book deal, by Kevan Lyon at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency (world).
After meeting Kelli Martin at RWA Nationals, I am beyond excited to work with her, and I am so thankful to my fantastic agent for making this happen. Montlake will be re-releasing my first two titles, Sleeping with Paris and Kissed in Paris, and there will be a fourth Paris novel to come! This means there will be print books as well!
None of this would be happening without all of the amazing readers who have given my Paris books a chance this past year. I first released Sleeping with Paris as an e-book last October, and Kissed in Paris in February, and the amount of reader support and excitement I have received over these past ten months has been incredible. Your belief in my stories has made all of this possible. So thank you, thank you, thank you!
I will keep you all posted with release dates and news as this journey unfolds. But for now, I'll leave you with a few of my favorite Paris and Lyon moments to brighten your day. . . after all, without having spent time in these beautiful cities, I never would've been inspired to write my novels!
Okay, the pink bundle again is obviously me. Why am I so excited this time? Because I'm about to eat a buttery pain au chocolat from my favorite patisserie on rue de Passy in Paris. Speaking of, I just wrote a scene in my next book where the hero is feeding my main character chocolate croissants in bed (Men, please take note.).
View of la Tour Eiffel from the 6 train, which I used to take to school during my days at NYU in Paris. I never tired of this view . . .
The best meal Sophie Moss and I have ever eaten, in Lyon. My main dish was an entire, breaded wheel of camembert cheese. If you're new to my blog, are you beginning to understand why I'm so in love with France? :)
I really adore how small everything is in France, especially those ridiculously tiny elevators.
Sophie and I always joke that these are the most photogenic pics we took the entire trip . . . even if they are in a miniature red hotel elevator!
Lyon is the French city that first stole my heart back in 2003 while I was studying abroad there. I made some of my absolute best friends in Lyon, and I cannot wait to go back . . .
I have poured a tremendous amount of heart (as well as wine and chocolate-filled evenings) into my third novel, Dancing with Paris, and I am so thrilled this story has found a home with Montlake! I cannot wait to share it with all of you . . . so until then, please have a square (or bar) of chocolate to celebrate with me:)
