My first novel, The Kingdom Keeper, will be published by St. Martin’s Press in early 2017. I find it impossible to put into words how happy, and relieved, and grateful I feel.

The publicity blurb:

Award-winning author Ethel Rohan’s debut novel, THE KINGDOM KEEPER, is set in Ireland and follows morbidly obese Billy Brennan who, in the wake of his teenage son’s inexplicable suicide, begins a weight-loss campaign, the first step in his ambitious plan to stop suicide, a crusade that further rocks his family and also disturbs his neighbors, but ultimately proves that with courage, determination, and love, one man’s small actions can bring about enormous change. To Brenda Copeland at St. Martin’s Press by Jeff Kleinman at Folio Literary Management (North American).

    Wow, wow, wow! So very pleased for you!!! Not at all surprised — but pleased. Cheers to you, Ethel, for a very hard-worked for, long-looked for and well-deserved sale.
