I am delighted to report that my novel OTHER THAN HONORABLE, aka Not!Sherlock, has sold to Harper Voyager in a two-book deal. The tentative release date is Summer 2018, with the sequel coming out the following year. Here is the announcement in Publishers Marketplace:

Claire O'Dell's OTHER THAN HONORABLE, in which Dr. Janet Watson and FBI Agent Sara Holmes, two black and LGBTQA women, must discover who is murdering veterans from America's New Civil War using espionage, advanced technology, and deduction, to Amber Oliver at Harper Voyager, for publication in Summer 2018, by Amanda Rutter (World Rights).

The novel first went out on submission at the end of February last year. After one rewrite request, two phone calls with two different editors, and a lot of anxious waiting, the offer came through last week. (But I had to wait for the go-ahead before I said anything in public.)

And now I have deadlines. Edits are due in May. An outline for the sequel, which I've tenatively named Separation from Service, is due September. And given recent horrible events, I need to rework the political backstory.

I am both excited and daunted.
