Tara Conklin’s second novel, The Last Romantics, was sold to William Morrow/Harper Collins and HarperCollins Canada and is tentatively slated for publication in early 2016. The Publishers Marketplace announcement reads: “NYT bestselling author of THE HOUSE GIRL Tara Conklin’s THE LAST ROMANTICS, a novel of family, siblings, love and loss, again to Kate Nintzel at William Morrow and Lorissa Sengara at Harper Canada, in a significant deal, by Michelle Brower at Folio Literary Management.”
I’m thrilled to announce that The House Girl has been selected as the Target Book Club Pick of the month for November, 2013. From November 5th, all Target stores will carry a special edition paperback with exclusive content, interview and more! The book is available for pre-order now.

There will be eggs, mimosas, a writer at every table and lots of good book talk!
