Congratulations to Carole Hailey for signing with Marina de Pass, literary agent at The Soho Agency.
Carole reached the final stage of judging for the BPA First Novel Award 2020 but wasn’t selected by the judges for the longlist. However, her novel The Silence Project was one of the BPA team’s favourite entries and particularly stood out to Emma Haynes. It’s rare we reach out to unsuccessful entrants in this way, but Emma felt the submission would appeal to Marina and so connected the two.
We are thrilled that Carole is now represented by such a dedicated agent and preparing her manuscript for submission to publishers. The Silence Project is a contemporary novel written as a fictional memoir.
