FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, NY (October 3, 2007) HarperCollins has acquired world English rights for THE HAPPINESS PROJECT: My Year Long Quest to be Happier by Changing My Life by bestselling author Gretchen Rubin. The pre-emptive deal was made by Gail Winston, Executive Editor, Harper, and Christy Fletcher of Fletcher & Parry. The book is tentatively scheduled to be published in Winter, 2010.
“Although the question of happiness has been examined by great thinkers and contemporary psychologists, this is a uniquely personal account of how one person actually learned to be happier,” says Winston. “Written with verve, intelligence, and a great sense of humor, this is popular non-fiction at its best.”
I’m thrilled! In celebration, Wednesday Tips will appear tomorrow.
The indefatigable Ron Hogan wrote about the deal on GalleyCat. Fabulous.
