Book Pipeline Grand Prize Winner Laura Picklesimer’s KILL FOR LOVE has been sold to Chris Heiser at Unnamed Press.
KILL FOR LOVE is about a sorority sister with a desire to kill attractive young men. She struggles to keep her sadistic impulses and haunting nightmares of fire and destruction at bay while contending with mounting legal scrutiny, social media-fueled chaos, and a growing romance with a seemingly perfect boyfriend.
"KILL FOR LOVE is a wickedly funny and biting satire about our culture, and Laura wrote it with such careful intensity. I'm quite sure it's the burn-it-down book we need right now and in times to come, but even more importantly, it gives women in crime fiction an edge they never had, which is that their rage doesn't have to be redeemable or reasonable,” says The Rights Factory agent Natalie Kimber. “When fiction has let men do this for centuries, it's so great to see a femme anti-hero like Laura's Tiffany now."
KILL FOR LOVE is scheduled for publication in Fall 2023.
