Publisher’s Weekly: Putnam Nabs Peterman’s ‘Negotiating’

Publisher's Weekly: Putnam Nabs Peterman's 'Negotiating'

By Rachel Deahl | June 17, 2022

Attorney and mediator Damali Peterman sold North American rights to Negotiating While Black: How to Be Who You Are to Get What You Want to Michelle Howry at Putnam. Peterman is CEO of the dispute-resolution firm Breakthrough ADR and was represented by Gillian MacKenzie at the Gillian MacKenzie Agency. The book, Putnam said, aims to be “the evergreen, inclusive book on negotiations” and will build on its author’s decades of professional experience resolving disputes. That, coupled with Peterman’s experiences as a Black woman, will make it, Putnam added, “a much more authentic guide that accounts for the bias that occurs in most negotiations” and will help “a large swath of readers negotiate to win, even when they’ve been underestimated.” Negotiating While Black is set for a spring 2024 release and has also been acquired in the U.K., at auction, by Bonnier’s Heligo Books imprint.
