Series III: House Rules

Scope and Contents note

This series contains manuscripts, and publishing and publicity materials related to Heather Lewis's first novel, House Rules. It is important to note that this project underwent several name changes. Initially Lewis called the project "Gambler's Choice" and "60-40" before changing the novel's title to "House Rules". With this in mind, the series is divided into five subseries. Subseries A consists of "Gambler's Choice" manuscripts. Subseries B includes "Sixty-Forty" manuscripts and plot synoposis. Subseries C includes "House Rules" manuscripts, outlines and summaries. Subseries D contains publishing information such as cover art. Subseries E includes publicity materials including advertisements, interviews and book reviews. Materials are organized alphabetically in each subseries.
