Book deal smells sweet to ‘Love’s’ Rose

Doubleday to publish 'Chronicles' this fall

Screenwriter Isabel Rose (“Anything but Love”) has blossomed as a first-time novelist, inking a two-book deal with Doubleday.

Editor Deb Futter made a preemptive offer worth nearly seven figures for “”The J.A.P. Chronicles.” Story focuses on six women who first meet at an elite Jewish summer camp. Years later at a reunion, they are surprised to see how their lives turned out.

“Isabel has managed to capture a certain world with humor and humanity,” Futter said. “It’s as if Jane Austen were updated by Candace Bushnell.”

Working on second novel

Deal encompasses U.S. and soft-cover rights. Doubleday will publish “Chronicles” this fall. Rose is now at work on her second novel, tentatively titled “Member of the Tribe.”

Deal was brokered by Wofford-Girand Literary Agency. UTA handles Rose’s film rights.

Samuel Goldwyn will release musical romance “Anything but Love” in November. Pic is about an aspiring cabaret singer who must choose between her career and domestic security. Rose wrote the script and co-stars with Andrew McCarthy and Eartha Kitt.
