Nicole Hackett’s NOBODY LIKES ALABAMA WOOD has sold to Melissa Rechter at Crooked Lane.
Pitched for readers of Chandler Baker’s Whisper Network, NOBODY LIKES ALABAMA WOOD follows the investigation into Instagram influencer Alabama Wood’s disappearance on a promotional trip to Iceland. Focusing on two fellow influencers, the investigation starts to uncover the lies they’ve told detectives, their followers, and themselves about motherhood, marriage, friendship, and betrayal.
“I fell in love with Nicole's sympathetic characters, their Insta-ambitions, and her deft observations about motherhood and marriage in this remarkable debut,” said The Rights Factory CEO Sam Hiyate. “I was really excited to work with her on this, and happy to have found a home for it."
NOBODY LIKES ALABAMA WOOD is scheduled for publication in Spring 2023.
