Tammara Webber Lands Two Book Deal After Self-Published Bestseller

After months at the top of our Self-Published Bestsellers List and selling more than 150,000 e-book copies, Tammara Webber has landed a book deal with Penguin’s Berkley Books and Penguin Young Readers Group divisions for her novel, Easy.

Jane Dystel of Dystel & Goderich Literary Management negotiated the two book deal with Penguin Young Readers Group president Don Weisberg. On October 9, Penguin Group start publishing the digital version of Easy, and Berkley will release a trade paperback edition on November 6th.

Here’s more from the release: “Easy follows two characters on the cusp of adulthood and reflects a growing trend in publishing that media outlets and readers have dubbed “new adult.” In new adult novels, the characters are often in their late teens or college age and are facing the coming-of-age issues that accompany the move from teen to adult life. In Easy, 19-year-old Jacqueline grapples with both the aftermath of a sexual assault and the excitement of a new love interest.” (Author photo via)
