The book includes two sequels, and the German language deal was negotiated by Jacqueline Murphy at FinePrint Literary Management, in association with Bastian Schlueck of the Thomas Schlueck Literary Agency, on behalf of Suzie Townsend at FinePrint Literary Management.
Tor Books bought Desrochers’ book earlier this year at an auction, and the U.S. release date is September 10, 2010. The book tells the story of “a good Catholic girl with a wicked streak who finds herself caught between an angel and a demon.” On her blog, Dornhoefer included that picture of herself signing her first book contract.
Townsend had this comment: “After working with Lisa on Personal Demons, I’m not surprised at all it’s receiving so much attention … I’ve been in love with the writing and story since page one. We’re very excited to be working with Tor and now with Rowohlt. Lisa has an amazing career ahead of her.”
