“A refreshing, incisive talent with a unique perspective.” Booklist

Tuesday, May 19, 2015


I'm thrilled to pieces to announce that I sold a second adult novel, Yesternight, to the William Morrow imprint of Harper Collins! This will make the fifth novel I've sold since 2011, which blows me away. I struggled for nearly twenty years just to get published in the first place.

Here's the official announcement from Publishers Marketplace:

Author of IN THE SHADOW OF BLACKBIRDS and THE CURE FOR DREAMING Cat Winters's YESTERNIGHT, in 1925, a trailblazing female psychologist unlocks the mystery behind a child's claims of reincarnation while also confronting questions in her own childhood, again to Lucia Macro at William Morrow, by Barbara Poelle at the Irene Goodman Agency (World).

The book is currently slated to be published Summer 2016.

Thanks so much to Lucia Macro for acquiring Yesternight, and to Barbara Poelle, my amazing and tireless agent, for making the sale possible.

I sold the book based on a proposal, so I'll be spending the next six months writing it, while also preparing for the release of two other novels and a short story. In short, I will be quite busy. Happy, but busy. :)
