WANDERLUST is being published by Putnam Books!

You may have already seen on Twitter or Instagram yesterday, but I have a big piece of news to share with you. WANDERLUST is going to be published by Putnam Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House!!!

A Publisher's Marketplace announcement. The announcement reads: "Elle Everhart's WANDERLUST, pitched in the vein of THE UNHONEYMOONERS and PEOPLE WE MEET ON VACATION, about a British magazine writer who wins a radio contest for a free trip around the world with the cavaet that her traveling companion has to be randomly selected from her phone contacts, landing on a posh, uptight lawyer she once ghosted, to Gabriella Mongelli at Putnam, in a pre-empt, in a two-book deal, by Jill Marr at Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency (world).

I am absolutely BUZZING about this news and I cannot wait to get stuck in with everything that comes next. Gaby Mongelli, my editor, and I had an immediate connection when we jumped on the initial call. We have the same vision for what this book could be and I cannot wait to start working on it with her.

I’m so grateful to my agent, Jill Marr, for her work when we were out on submission, and to my Pitch Wars mentors, Jenny Howe and Courtney Kae, who helped me turn WANDERLUST into the book it is today. Jill, Jenny, and Courtney were so supportive while we were on submission, as were my other writing and non-writing friends. Truly, I am so, so grateful for them!!

WANDERLUST is going to be out in 2023! If you’d like to follow along with every step of the journey, head on over to my YouTube channel where I’ll be chronicling everything I possibly can.
