Publication News!

We are thrilled to report that Kristen Loesch’s debut novel The Porcelain Doll was published by Allison & Busby in Spring, 2022. Kristen was shortlisted for the Caledonia Novel Award 2020 with Kukolka (now The Porcelain Doll) and signed with Sharon Galant at Zeitgeist Agency.

The Porcelain Doll is a haunting, gothic tale, an exploration of secrets, revenge and redemption across three generations of Russian women from the 1917 revolution to the final days of the USSR, and was inspired in part by Kristen’s interest in some of her own family’s mysterious history.

Kristen commented, “I will always be so proud of having been shortlisted for the Caledonia Novel Award. It is a fantastic competition, run by the most supportive people, which offers a truly invaluable opportunity for aspiring writers. For me, it was a major turning point, both in terms of helping me connect with my agent-to-be and my own confidence in my work. I absolutely encourage anyone with a manuscript in hand to enter, and see where it takes you! I can’t thank Wendy and the Caledonia Novel Award enough for being among the very first to believe in my novel.”

Many congratulations to Kristen!
