One quick update to let you know that the title of my forthcoming novel has changed. I am very pleased to tell you that the novel, still coming in September 2012, is now called In Need of a Good Wife. Here is the announcement posted in today’s Publisher’s Marketplace:
Author of THE LOST SUMMER OF LOUISA MAY ALCOTT Kelly O’Connor McNees’s IN NEED OF A GOOD WIFE, the story of three women in a group of mail-order brides who travel from New York City to Nebraska in 1867 — a combative Civil War widow in financial ruin, an introspective Bavarian laundress, and the barmaid-turned-matchmaker who launches the venture to thwart her grief after the death of her baby, to Claire Zion at Berkley, by Marly Rusoff at Marly Rusoff & Associates (NA).
That’s IN NEED OF A GOOD WIFE. IN NEED OF A GOOD WIFE, IN NEED OF A GOOD WIFE, IN NEED OF A GOOD WIFE. Just forget all about that other title!
