Rowena Kuo of Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas told agent Jim Hart they wished to publish Beth Ziarnik’s debut novel, Deadly Inheritance. Beth signed the contract on December 11. Her romantic suspense novel will release in 2016.
Rowena requested the novel’s full manuscript during a fifteen-minute editor appointment while Beth attended the 2014 Write-To-Publish conference. At the same conference, Beth’s novel received one of four awards at the banquet. Chris Richards, then of Written World Communications, presented it to her. Now an acquisitions editor for Lighthouse, Chris has been assigned as Beth’s editor at Lighthouse. Both she and Beth are excited about this opportunity to work together.
