So, this happened today.
I am over the moon to tell you that The Copper Promise trilogy has been bought by the marvellous people at Headline. Ironically enough, for someone now being paid to write intelligibly, I don’t really have the words for how much this means to me. My book, the book that has been my dearest companion for the last eighteen months or so, is going to be a real thing.
This probably doesn’t make much sense. I’ll make more sense later, when I’m over the sugar rush from the ridiculous celebratory doughnut I just ate, and then I’ll write a more sensible blog post too, but for the moment I’m flinging a huge thanks to Juliet Mushens, my kickass agent extraordinaire, and John Wordsworth, the awesome SFF editor at Headline. I snoopy dance in your honour, chaps!
As a bookseller I’ve been reading The Bookseller (ahem) for many years. It was tremendously surreal and exciting to see my (weirdly grumpy-looking) face on its front page, and I cannot wait to see The Copper Promise make its way in the world. Exciting times!
