Elizabeth Kostova Jumps to Random House

Bestselling novelist Elizabeth Kostova (pictured, via) has inked a new publishing deal with Random House Publishing Group’s Ballantine Bantam Dell unit for her next novel. Publication is scheduled for 2013.

Little, Brown and Company had published Kostova’s previous two novels, The Historian and The Swan Thieves. Agent Amy Williams of McCormick & Williams negotiated the deal for North American hardcover, paperback, audio, and e-book publication rights.  Ballantine Bantam Dell editor-in-chief Jennifer Hershey will edit the novel.

Here’s more about the book: “The new novel will be set in the U.S. and Eastern Europe, and like The Historian will move between past and present, and combine elements of suspense, myth and folklore.”
