Double Karma – A Novel

May 28, 2021

It’s a deal!

I’m very pleased to announce that Marc Côté and Cormorant Books will be publishing my first novel, Double Karma, in Spring 2023. The publishing deal was posted on Quill & Quire’s website on May 27 with the following notice:

Cormorant Books’ Marc Côté has acquired world, dramatic, and audio rights to Daniel Gawthrop’s Double Karma. The first novel from the five-time nonfiction author is described as the story of an American who travels to his father’s native land of Burma in 1988 to learn about his roots and photograph the country. Caught up in the pro-democracy movement, he becomes increasingly involved in the student political uprising and finds himself on the battlefield, face-to-face with an enemy who looks just like him. Publication is expected for March 2023.”

I’m thrilled to be working with Marc and his Cormorant team on Double Karma, and look forward to publication. Stay tuned for more information about the novel, pre-orders of the book, et cetera, as we get closer to March 2023.

Thanks to the many people who have supported this project over the years and pushed me toward a publishable manuscript. And thanks to you, my readers!

All the best,
