NATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR: The Dollhouse was on the extended ABA Indiebound Bestseller list for two weeks, and The Address was a national bestseller, with three weeks on the Indie printed list and six weeks on the extended list.
PAPERBACK TIE IN: The paperback of The Masterpiece will tie in to the new hardcover.
HUGE STRIDES WITH FIONA: Fiona’s first two novels both recieved incredible publicity lineups, with rave reviews from People, US Weekly, and Ms Magazine, among others, and her forthcoming publications—The Address TP, and The Masterpiece HC—have taken a huge leap. From placement in Target (The Address TP) and Costco (The Masterpiece), to early raves for The Masterpiece to add to nine glowing blurbs, to preorders for The Masterpiece that are up 198% from The Address as of July 14, we’re breaking Fiona out, and this new book is the perfect opportunity to continue her exponential growth.
CONNECTED AND DEDICATED AUTHOR: Fiona is a tireless promoter of her own work, hand-delivering galleys to indies, speaking at countless bookclubs and library events, writing articles and completing Q&As online, and utilizing her connections.
ICONIC SETTING: Fiona’s new novel centers on the Chelsea Hotel from the 1940s to the 1960s, iconic for its artistic scene and many famous residents, such as Mark Twain, Arthur Miller, Jack Kerouac, Stanley Kubrick, Andy Warhol, Sid Vicious, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Patti Smith, Leonard Cohen, and The Grateful Dead—just to name a few.
TIMELY STORY: While historical fiction, the novel focuses on female friendship and the political pressures of McCarthyism, relateable topics in the today’s continued rise of feminism and political strife.
WORLD RIGHTS: We have world rights for Fiona, and her books have so far been sold in 10 languages.
Praise for The Masterpiece:
“Davis has written another paean to a New York City landmark. Historical fiction fans will love the compelling dual narrators and time periods perfectly captured in this novel based on the history of one of the busiest transportation hubs in the world.”—Library Journal (starred)
“Davis’s splendid third novel takes readers back in time to the New York of the 1970s and the late ’20s, centering on Grand Central Station…Davis entices with a fast-paced mystery and expertly reveals parallels between the two periods in New York and between Clara and Virginia, resulting in a true crowd-pleaser.”—Publishers Weekly
