Glory


Well I may dip out on grants, awards and residencies of literary note, but the Glory is mine this week. Or should I say its Penny's, my lovely editor at Scholastic- it's in her inbox as I write. All 39,617 words of it. We have just finished the final edits for this, my third junior fiction novel and now all that remains is the mark up, typesetting, proofs, printing, distribution, launch, marketing, launch and selling of lots of copies...

Glory hallelujah!!!! That is fantastic news Fifi. Issy and Daisy and Angelique and the legion of young fans of your work that I know will be pleased too. When's the launch? X

August- yes seems a long way away but amazing how it all creeps up on you. I will keep you posted!

Yaayyyyyyyy (dancing wildly like a muppet on desk top). I'm liking 2009 so far - how about you?

Wow, and yay and hooray - Glory indeed.

Yes, the launch - we all want invites please!

Well done you overly-talented woman with so many strings to your bow, it's astonishing.

Thankyou all! Without my support crew nothing would be possible!
The colour of the cover came out very hot pink on my blog but is in fact purple. With overglossed stars.
Still very girly which i hope won't put the boys off because I think they'd enjoy it too. But maybe if their sisters leave it lying around...
