We are thrilled to announce that we will be publishing a terrific debut novel by editor and blogger Mary McCarthy. It's an honest and thought-provoking--not to mention hilarious and pretty steamy--novel about how love and life can  evolve (or devolve) over time. Here are the details via Publishers Marketplace:

Senior Editor at Splice Today Mary McCarthy's debut novel THE SCARLET LETTER SOCIETY, about a group of women who meet to explore their lives, failing marriages and extramartial affairs, as they cycle through various lovers and life-stages, tackling the universal themes of happiness, fulfillment, and love amidst feelings of uncertainty, for publication in Summer 2014,
in a two book deal, to Jason Pinter at Polis Books by Myrsini
Stephanides at the Carol Mann Agency (World).
